Londoners React: Although Prepared For Martyrdom, They Preferred That It Be Postponed.
Wonkette's Fleet Street operative writes with news of the aftermath:
It's just 4.50pm here and people are already fleeing central London like rats leaving a sinking ship.Of course. Meanwhile, we also hear that at about the same time, CNN was the first net to break out the "stiff upper lip" cliche.
We, however, intend to continue our already-agreed plan to go out drinking tonight. Otherwise the terrorists have won. Thought you might approve.
We quibble: Lips, no; drinks, yes.
