Hello everyone, I just logged on and been reading (and heard on the radio) about what has transpired in London this morning. To all you U2 fans in Europe and in that area my prayers are with you. I hope all your friends and family are safe from this tragedy.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of our London friends, and those who have loved ones in the area. And heck, thoughts and prayers to everyone, really.

What an awful shock.

Same here. People are acting like it is a normal day where I am. Kind of sad if you ask me.

Australian Foreign Affairs helpline for relatives has changed. Now call 1800 00 22 14. The Scotland Yard hotline for people within Britain: 0870 1566 344.

This is just despicable. I have many loved ones in London all appear to be ok, but I fear the death toll will rise from the current 33. The government and the BBC are clearly controlling information to try to avoid panic, the BBC web site is still claiming only 2 dead. A dreadful day for London and the world. I just hope there is no backlasch against the Muslim/Asian community in the wake of this. That would be very very sad.

I had an e-mail from a friend of mine from high school who's working in London; she's okay, and all her friends and co-workers are, too.

33 indeed. More governmental horseshit. I was told by one of the case investigators, who has been on the scene all day, that the death toll BEFORE MIDDAY was much higher than the BBC claim now, at 5pm-ish. There were more than 33 people on that bus for Christ's sake. Not to mention the '21' (yeah, right) dead at Kings Cross, 7 at Edgware, etc. They're still claiming that 2 people are dead at Aldgate. Well, that's bloody odd, considering that over 20 bodies had been removed by 10.30 this morning, according to a top civil servant who was there throughout.


I know I keep bleating the same thing but, Jesus Christ on a friggin' unicycle - the authorities are talking utter garbage.

Couldn't agree more.
