Fighters over London?

#1
Just saw a Tornado fly over the City of London at a height of about 300m. Air display? Or are pro-hunting types about to turn up in waves of biplanes?

Perhaps TBLiar is sitting in No 10 crapping himself after yesterdays debacle in the House of Commons :roll:

What? Where? I didn't see anything.

Hermetically sealed office. :roll:

You should have seen me move when it came over, looking for the jumbo it was after! 8O

Although I very much doubt Osama and his buddies would try the same thing twice, being 22 floors up above the City makes one a little jumpy when fighter planes start going past your windows!

Hah! If it were not for my Evil calmness, I would be a bit worried about the fact that the real Mini-Evil goes to nursery in the same frikkin Barbican that plane was flying over.

Have not mentioned this to Mrs Evil, as living in London and working in Westminster is freaking her out enough already.

Enough already? Am I Jerry Seinfeld?

Maybe Tony Bliar is about to tell us that the aliens are about to attack the earth in 45 mins and he was up there for a quick practice run in the same vein as the sadsack president in "Independence Day"
:lol:
God I must stop drinking :roll:

Oh good grief. This may just be me being blase, but as one who grew up largely within the ring of misery that is Europe's biggest car park I'm not losing any sleep over a possible terrorist attack for the following two reasons:

1. After all the years of the IRA threat there can be few cities in the world where the police and the general poplulation are more clued up about suspect packages etc etc and what to do about them. And the incident with the twin towers means nobody has relaxed much on that front.

2. In the event of a terrorist attack on, say, the tube the reaction of the majority of people would be either:

a) Chuh! How inconsiderate doing that in the rush hour. I have to get home tonight somehow, the baby-sitter's waiting, or

b) Hmmmf. Took them long enough to realise we're a Wester Imperialist power, didn't it?!

Doesn't anyone remember the lack of impact success the IRA bombs had on London? Quite difficult to make this lovely city any more miserable and paranoid than it is already IMO.

No, I'm not really a uge fan of London. Does it show? :roll:

What just one Tornado ? is that all the RAF can get of the ground for a fly past ,what did they do have a whip round for the juice?or did Buff send coupons :roll:

Personally I've always found Londoners incredibly blase about security, more concerned about being thought a twit, or worse, offending someone by asking about the ownership of packages and the like.

That said the plod are handy enough and hey, I'm paranoid.

must admit, since i lived there in the eighties, there is even more immigrants of both sorts,, legal and otherwise, to have totally ignored the comman sense bit. i must admit to cruising from blackheath to stroud and back to tottenham minus number plates and no one batted an eyelid, that was in 94. guess no one gives a fcuk, till something happens. :cry:
