The BBC is accepting comments from the general public and posting a sampling...a lot are just first-hand accounts from London, which are harrowing enough, but this one is especially well-said:


Yesterday, we were annoyed with Londoners and English people. London won the games and Paris lost them. And today we wake up. We realise that these little fights between old friends are for spoilt children. We are all facing a huge challenge. We have all to fight terrorism. We are all Londoners today. We all feel sad and share the pain of the one who are suffering today. Do not worry my friends, we will be with you in this fight and we will win it.
- Julien, Paris, France

Stiff Upper Lip

Hear hear! And shame on the San Jose Mercury News (and others) for making this story all about 'us.'

Any bets the Blair will not squander the global good-will toward the UK today like Bush did in '01?


Great LJ icon


Also liked the older man who said, "I've been bombed by a better class of bastard than THIS!"

hehe...those were the exact other quotes I saved...including the animated tea gif... ;) BTW the original tea comment is here before it was made into an icon:

I found these here:
To quote an old Londoner who lived through the blitz and got caught up in the Canary Wharf explosion: "I've been blown up by a better class of bastard than this!"
"We took on the Romans, the Saxons, the Danes, the French, William Wallace, the Black Plague, the Roundheads, the Great Fire, Napoleon, the Nazis, and the Blitz, and we're still here. You terrorists are bloody amateurs."
