Oh, is it terrorist season again?

Despite the increasing trend for displays of mass (and fake) emotion here in post-Diana Britain, it’s reassuring to note that when the shit really hits the fan, the black humour and quizzically raised eyebrow quickly return. After the 7 July 2005 bombings, the sarcastic posts to the London Hurts LiveJournal page made me guffaw, and Jeremy’s description of the BBC’s calm continuity was the perfect encapsulation of a peculiarly British type of national non-pride.

So when our country is targeted by the Special Needs Division of al Qaeda (thanks to DHM for making me giggle with that one) it’s good to see that our response is, once again, utterly appropriate.

Yep, that’s right, we’re going to put on our best clothes and go marching!
