Been trying to send this to my moblog for ages!

Lots of love to Paula, Mills, Barney, Phil and all the paramedics and EMTs at Russell square. I know you guys are almost totally fearless!

Here are some thoughts I wrote down which I just wanted to keep a record of for myself:
Original post here

It was a number 30 bus. It stops at the end of my road on it's way from Hackney Wick to Marble Arch. Sometimes my girlfriend takes it to work and we're both always happy if we ever have to take it home because it virtually takes us to our door. It's sad to think about who the purportrators targeted becuase everyone you will see at that bus stop (and on all of London's public transport) are all really chilled normal people from all colours, ages and faces, from all walks of life. Yoots in school uniform, mum's with shopping, lost tourists, scruffy tradesmen, out-of-work folk, old geezers, purple haired grannies and your average joe on their way into town, to spend time or earn a living. Everyday, Londoners ride the bus or tube, and we mostly manage to live in harmony with each others morning moods, overheard conversations, walking speeds, body odours, smelly foods, leftover newspapers and toppling on each other at each jerky stop. Some of those people have just been snuffed out. I think Ken Livingstone said it best when he said:

"This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty and the powerful; it is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers; it was aimed at ordinary working class Londoners, black and white, Muslim and Christians, Hindu and Jew, young and old, indiscriminate attempt at slaughter irrespective of any considerations, of age, of class, of religion, whatever.

That isn't an ideology. It isn't even a perverted faith. It's just indiscriminate attempt at mass murder, and we know what the objective is, they seek to divide London. They seek to turn Londoners against each other and Londoners will not be divided by this cowardly attack... I wish to speak through you directly, to those who came to London to claim lives, nothing you do, how many of us you kill will stop that flight to our cities where freedom is strong and where people can live in harmony with one another, whatever you do, how many you kill, you will fail."

Also thanks to mat and alfie for maintaining moblog. Interesting discusssions. I have to say that being from London and living here, makes me think about what New York and Madrid must have felt, and I have more empathy/sympathy for the tragedy they experienced than I did before. To be honest I was quite numb to it up until now.

I think pursuing the ideal of justice for all living beings is a noble goal that everyone in the modern world can aspire to. Its not a religious belief.

"Peace is the active presence of justice. If we aspire to create or achieve peace at all, let alone world peace, justice must be at the forefront of all our ideals. Justice is 'respect' - respect for the whole of the humanity, for all beings and for all of nature."

(I didn't say that this guy did in his article on buddhism and world peace)

Two packs of fake tobacco i reckon. I was channel hopping (on TV) and caught a glimpse of watchdog article talking about cheap fake tobacco imports. They'd found fake B&H; and Lambert & Butler.

I came across these which were meant to be genuine "from Poland", but as you can see, there's ain't no polish written on there! Only French, Gerrman and Dutch. Is it normal to have three different languages on a tobacco pack?

Incidentally it tasted crusty and foul. Like Old Holborn. But harsher!
