Photo operations


The above picture is another photo I took of people photographing other people, also in the Louvre in Paris.

This morning the UKYP began its annual sitting, and I dropped off bluemeanie at the venue in Leicester. As a result I was a bit late for work, and so it was a long day making up the hours. 

Then of course there was the drama again in London, and the worry that the police may be starting to panic.  Then again, perhaps the aurors were not police after all.

Even Special Branch and SO19 (Scotland Yard’s armed unit) are not trained to do this sort of thing.

It’s plausible that they were special forces or elements of special forces,

according to Prof Clarke

My immediate reaction on hearing of the incidents is to phone everyone I know who might be in London. A colleague advised me that this is not recommended. In any case it doesn’t seem a practical thing to do on what could be a regular basis. I did a quick search on the web for any advice that has been issued to the UK public about how to behave in the the event of a terrorist attack. There is a surprising lack of such information, for example at the BBC and at the Metropolitan Police sites.  If anyone knows of any sites giving advice, please let me know.

The police meanwhile have said that their investigations into the bombings are proceeding at a cracking pace. One hopes that it is not too fast, given the recent contradictions.  Then again it took them 26 hours to release CCTV images of the latest suspects.  In theory the bombers could get to Australia within 26 hours.

It seems the police have admitted a mistake.
