There is some breaking news that London has just got bombed again. Check the bbc news websites or whatever.

No casualties have been reported yet, but the tubes are basically down again.

There we are though, no need to take more action against people IMO.

They were only detonator blasts, not big ones. So either 1) The bombs were only there to scare people and cause havok but not kill lots of people 2) It was a conincidence that the bombs all didn't go off or 3) The bombs were made by the IRA, who have a long history of bad bombmaking :P

EDIT: Mum just phoned, she's OK and was nowhere near the the places where the bombs went off, phew

I'm not sure if there is need to panic just yet.
Any idea if they happened at the same time, like last time?
Could be it's some sort of "prank" or perhaps they found undetonated packages, or small bombs.
Then again it could just be mass-hysteria (though the fact that it happened in three different places makes me think it probably isn't mass hysteria)

oh god, no way, not again.. just turned the telly on and its all over. luckily there have been no injuries reported yet. looks like we got a campaighn starting. in part this is gonna be inevitable. due to the first attack we are getting around to deporting certain preachers so we are now going to have to deal with there supporters along with al quieda.
this sucks.
4 explosions 3 on the tube. one on a bus. but it isnt being treated as a major incident as the bombs have been small.

Yeah, exactly. This is turning into a right piss-take.

We'd best not start slamming Muslims as the cause yet. I for one will be pissed off if that's the case.

If some of these assholes are going to get kicked out of the country, I am all for it. I hope that it was a bad prank than another attempt to hurt anyone.

I'm not accusing anyone just yet, not before I know what the situation really is like. At the moment both the BBC and the CNN are doing the best they can at sounding like an amateur newsstation by throwing out information at random and stuttering without clearly defining what has happened.

Yeah, exactly. Euronews hasn't got it yet, but that'll be the most accurate.
