Oh Bloody Hell

BBC News (and everybody else) is reporting bombs going off at several different London tube stations this morning.

So far two dead, no one knows how many injured, and the entire London transist system is at a standstill. This makes me sick to hear about. I love London, I love the Underground, and I can’t bear to think of any harm coming to either. I’ve been through quite a few of the stations where there were bombs: Aldgate, King’s Cross, Russell Square. And I can imagine how scary it would be to be stuck down there for 20 or 30 minutes with the train stopped, and smoke all around, waiting for somebody to get you out.

This honestly is upsetting me far more than if I’d woken up to hear that all of Manhattan had been blown up. I’ll be following developments all day, and keeping London, the people, and even Tony Blair, in my thoughts. It is still the greatest city in the world, and I’m sure it will get through this with flying colours.
