As Jake Burns sang:

"Take a look where you're living,
You got the army on the street"

He was talking about Belfast during the Civil War euphemistically known as "The Troubles". Sadly, it also applies to the UK today:

It has also emerged that the bomber was reported by several people to the anti-terrorist hotline, but that there is insufficient manpower to follow up all but the most obviously urgent cases.

Who made those cuts to the Police?

Not that I believe in any kind of 'afterlife' but...I seriously wish these idiots an eternity of suffering.

Morons.

Great night/gig in Nottingham last night. The smile soon came off my face when I turned the news on in the car.

Told Mrs S,  who was working at Barking Underground station this morning, to 'take care'. She sent me a txt message at 7.07 this morning, saying : "Just heard what sounded like 3 gunshots and an explosion"

Took little notice until the BBC reported later:

Quote
"Controlled explosions were carried out at the flat in Barking during the raids on Sunday morning"

Eeek!!  :(

Sadly, one is far too many.
