The timing of the olympics is irrelevant surely. You think they'd have called off an attack if the decision had gone to Paris?

G8 is in Scotland btw. I think they're at Gleneagles this morning, or was that yesterday? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

yeah but they're not going to bomb a golf course, I'm not saying they'd have called if off, but today's just the perfect date (although yesterday may have been better, would've certainly swung it in Paris' favour)

sounds more like IRA style bombing, but I highly doubt it's them.

sydney is reporting it, the whole london tube has been shut down.

london just cant seem to get enough publicity as if late..

( on a unrelated note, if this wasnt the doing of some terrorist group, its now just given terrorist groups a great idea in how its all crippled )

just be lucky its not some airborne attack, much like the japanese cult nut a few yrs ago who s people released substance on trains in peak hr.

This is defintely the work of terrorists.

If it's the IRA, expect a hard-line approach. If it's Al-Qaeda, race relations now will be damaged in this country, and the pressure WILL be on Mr.Blair to pull out of Iraq and to quit.

I hope he sticks to his guns, pulling out now will be more catastrophic.

More like the pressure will be on to take a HARDER course of action in brining these terrorists to justice. Plus ID cards will be dragged up in the news again and they'll talk about how it could have prevented this.

I was but i'm remembering that that was the real IRA now. And highly unlikely to be them.

Don't be ridiculous, of course it's not ETA.

It could be any number of middle eastern terrorist groups - some allied with Iraq, some allied with iran, or Al-qaeda.

But it just doesn't seem large scale enough to be anyone serious.
