7/7 - Five Years on

It is weird to think that five years ago London was paralysed as the tube and a bus was blown up. The memories of that day are fresh in my mind, and the subsequent events are also surprisingly easy to recall that culminated in he death of De Menezes.

To be blunt it was an almighty F-up. And a tragedy. All of the events during that time. But still, the city moved on, and despite the chaos of that day, London still got on with what it does best. Making money.

Ten years will pass, then twenty, and the memories of this event will fade into a distant memory. There will probably be other terror attacks that will strike the city. London is a target, and a damn good one if you want publicity. But we will get on with it, we will survive and like everything else in life, we will adapt...
