    Uhh.. I might be worng, but I don't think they care. What people think sure hasn't stopped people from flying planes into buildings and blowing themselves up in markets.

    This is a logical and rational thought. Someone who blows up innocent civilians is neither logical or rational.

    Bombers these day do it to get attention for that cause. So in that regard, it's logical what he said.

    i love the fact one was parked illegally so it got a ticket and towed away before they found the bomb. shows what life for a driver is like in London.

    i don't understand the mental state of people who set this kind of thing up though

    All those CCTV cameras in London and I bet they still don't get any half decent footage - Strange they've not released any suspect images yet. Makes you wonder what good they actually are...

    I'm kinda the conspiracy guy here, but it all sounds like one big PR stunt for Brown now that he's in office.

    "See how safe we can keep you by being aware".

    I don't buy it at all... in this situation, it seems just as likely as it was a couple of guys that were ont he way back from the DIY store.

    It's a pretty bad PR stunt since they have nothing to show for it.

    No, you're missing what I mean.

    See, most governments go out of their way not to let people know that there was almost a terror attack. When things like this slip out, it's often believed that they were set up to garner attention to the protectful, watchful government... in this case, the new PM.

    There's a lot to "show for it" as far as he is concerned... "foiling" a terrorist act within the first week of taking office. Had there been an incident where people were injured, of course - a real honest-to-goodness bombing - all fingers point at the ineffectiveness of those in public office.

    I dunno... I've grown cynical during the "War on brown ...err, Terror". I could very well be talking out of my arse now, in which case please disregard my tinfoil hat rantings.

    Exactly. Everyone knows that the government allows some of these incidents to be shared to the public as something called "news" (whatever the hell that is).

    Wait a minute... tinfoil hats are used for car bombs! You're one of them!
