London Spirit
« on: June 04, 2017, 04:14:13 PM »
I'm sure we all felt saddened and possibly angry at last night's London Bridge attacks.
Our thoughts and sympathies go out to all affected by these outrages.

Just to illustrate the Londoner's resilience and reluctance to have his evening ruined, see this guy's beer preservation skills:

Atrocity  :230:      Yes, anger. Yes, sadness but they won't beat us though!

Londoners have all my sympathy.

But suicidal maniacs won't have anything from me. They just don't even deserve my anger!

Turns out he's actually a scouser, the quote "this is what happens when you charge a scouser London beer prices" is being banded about.

Greatly impressed with the guy who threw tables and chairs at the attackers to draw them out into the open where the Police then shot them and the 8 minutes response time !

Greatly pleased to see the imans refusing to bury them, as has happened in Manchester, that's another three definately not going to paradise, regardless of what they claim to believe  :028:


I'll never be old enough to know better !

Very sorry for anyone who lost someone in this horrific act and those injured. I have no respect for these people or their logic that drives them to harm or kill innocent people in the name of whatever messed up motive they follow.
