Tony Blair says terrorists will never intimidate “us” into changing “our way of life”.

Which “us” is that, Tony? The “us” who are driven to work in armoured cars flanked by armed secret service personnel? Or the “us” who take public transport to work?

When did you last hop on the tube to Westminster?

And please let us hear no more of this “Seven Seven” nonsense. Giving tragedy a brand name is a vanity peculiar to rich Western countries. I don’t remember Iraq branding any of their especially violent killings, although perhaps that’s because Iraqi people have been killed by bombs every day for years.

The world has been very kind. We are all touched by it. I’d like to take this opportunity to remember that all over the world people die daily in the same sickening way with no fanfare.
