Tattooed hairdressers, Guardian staffers, council workers, Italian business analysts, couples, Turkish students, photo researchers, Vietnamese IT experts, healthcare specialists, Israeli charity workers, Bangladeshi bank cashiers, Glasgow mission volunteers, Afghans, French, fathers, mothers … all among the dead following July 7’s terrorist attacks. Also murdered was Giles Hart:

A ‘Champion of liberty and human rights’ who helped Lech Walesa deliver Poland from totalitarian rule has been confirmed among the victims of the London bus bombing.

Giles Hart, 55, a prominent British supporter of Walesa’s Solidarity movement in Poland throughout the 1980s, was also chairman of the HG Wells Society and a member of the Humanist Society and Anti-Slavery Society.

Mr Hart was on his way to work as a BT engineer in Islington when he was killed by the explosion on the No 30 bus. He leaves behind his Polish wife Danuta, daughter Maryla, 21, son Martin, 17, mother Elsie, 85, and sister Erica. As the official death toll rose to 55 yesterday, Mr Hart’s family said in a statement: ‘Giles was always a champion of liberty and human rights and a campaigner against political injustice and bigotry. It is tragic that he fell victim to the very evil against which he had struggled.’

Hart supported Solidarity because he “was pleased to find a campaign that recognised the totalitarian nature of communist Eastern Europe, instead of referring to the Soviet Union as a ‘socialist state where workers have real trade union rights’.” I wonder what he would have made of the BBC’s failure to recognise terrorists.


Three London Underground stations have been evacuated following “incidents”. Emergency services personnel have also responded to reports of an incident on a bus in Hackney Road, junction near Colombia Road, east London.

London Ambulance Service said there were are no reported casualties at Warren Street, Shepherds Bush and Oval tube stations. Stations were evacuated.

Further details on the bus incident are currently unknown.

Passengers at Warren Street reported seeing smoke and there were unconfirmed reports of some kind of explosion at Warren Street station. Other reports indicate that gunshots were fired, or that a nail bomb went off.

    1. Latest is at least one backpack bomb which failed to detonate.

    1. Some sort of explosion (apparently) at the Oval. Several bags on other trains.

    1. Multiple small explosions. Sounds like some poorly made bombs. Only the dets going off perhaps.

    1. Bus with a small explosive device on Hackney Rd in the East End, gunshots at Warren St, also possible nail bomb; indicators are that all devices were amateurish and failed to detonate. Claims that a suspect threw a bag into a carriage, then decamped.
      The Underground is now under an amber alert.

    1. Armed police have entered a hospital.

    1. Sky has it on live. Reports that the bugger who fled Warren St has turned up at University Hospital for treatment- that would be fairly typical of these turds, get injured trying to bomb a train and pop off to the NHS for treatment. SOG is on site.

    1. They just get sadder and sadder – if I was a bomber I’d be pretty demoralised by the London attacks, what with the small loss of life compared to any of the other attacks. 

      And this latest attack, man, sounds like a pack of school-kids pretending to be terrorists.

      If Sharia is going to be implemented next week, why are their attacks getting so pathetic? 

      Fucking losers…

    1. Habib, it happens alot in Israel where the Hospitals have a policy of treating the most severe patients first where would-be suicide bombers end up getting treatment ahead of those they tried to kill.

    1. Sky News report, with the best line in bold:

      Victoria Line train passenger Ivan McCracken told Sky News he spoke to an Italian man who witnessed an explosion just after the train arrived at the platform.

      “He told me he had seen a man carrying a rucksack which suddenly exploded. It was a minor explosion but enough to blow open his rucksack. Everyone rushed from the carriage. People evacuated very quickly. There was no panic.

      “I didn’t see anyone injured but there was shock and fright.

      “There was a smell of smoke.”

      The man who was holding the rucksack looked extremely dismayed.

    1. From what I’m seeing on SKY, London Rocks – once again no-one cares, just like I didin’t care during the fifteen evacuations I endured on the Underground (when I was Aussie in London, Working for Nothing).

      Didn’t enjoy London too much myself, given my poverty-stricken situation, but it was an awesome city – love the way they shook off the terrorist attacks the other week.

      Now it’s happenning again, but in an awfully lame way.

      Throwing backpacks at people?

      And then running off?

      Hoping the fireworks inside go off?

      Sounds like a bunch of kids.

      Let’s hope the reports of chemical warfare are bunk….

    1. Arty –

      Am I the only one who would like to see the head office of the Guardian get a taste of ‘sassiness’?

      I wouldn’t.  They’ve already lost one person to this and no matter how blind they are, I can only hope that they will face reality soon.
      Many people that are well aware of the dangers going on at the moment with Islamofaism were once that stupid.

    1. About the victims of terrorism which Tim Blair has pointed out – the absolute undiscrimation of victims by the murders is evidence of the total farce to the apolgist view that people like Bob Ellis ramble on about.  He legitimises their claim that because it’s a democracy all voters are responsible for the government voted in….well..No.  The thing about democracy is that everyone votes according to their beliefs and the argument by Ellis is so ludicrous that it enrages me that his opinion is even given one milimetre credibility.

      Posted by Melanie on 07/21 at 10:21 AM • permalink


    1. According to SKY News, the cops in London have been authorised to “shoot for the head”, if confronted with suicide bombers who may be loaded-up.

      Reminds me of Shaun of the Dead:

      “Remove the head from the body”

    1. Looks like someone’s been going for their Junior Jihadists Bomb-making Badge.  My guess is that the bombs will turn out to be simple pipe bombs made of something like fireworks or match heads.  Still, even crappy bombs can kill, so thank god no one has died.

    1. Who was that pussy standing next to John Howard at the press conference just now?

      Posted by richard mcenroe on 07/21 at 10:48 AM • permalink


    1. Wonder if Howard’s presence set the timing of the attack?

      I think they would have done more if they could have. One of these days they’ll kill again, if the Brits (and the US) don’t wise up.

    1. Melanie
      even the comments by Ellis pale into insignificance when compared to Red Ken’s , who is after all Mayor of London, and on whose’ watch these attrocities are occurring.
      He is also the Man who has welcone Jew and Christian hating Islamic firebrand clerics at the ratepeyers expense to London.
      If red Ken cried in public a few days ago for the victims, then his tears should have been tears or guilt.

    1. Amazing.  The minute John Howard said the word “terrorism,” the feed was cut.  Was that the Beeb or our local news?  Anyone know?

      Posted by richard mcenroe on 07/21 at 10:53 AM • permalink


    1. It’s either an amateurish attempt to cause panic and economic disruption, or the splodeyboys got ripped off on their explosives. 

      Waiting now for the usual leftist/Muslim excuses and “fears of reprisal”.

      DO you really think that they even know who Howards is?
      These people love to kill infidels for Islam. It really is as simple as that.
      You should try keeping Howard Iraq Israel and uncle tom cobley out of it.

    1. If it was timed for anything, try the Ashes.

      … and some asshole Australian reporter has just demanded that we admit we’re losing.

    1. This is either a copycat, or a followup.

      Its 2 weeks later and around the same time, bombings are expensive for terrorists and their main objective is to scare people. If they do a big one like 7/7 and then follow it up with more smaller ones like this, they will create greater panic than if, say, they did a bigger one on 7/7 and nothing more, or did another one of the same magnitude now. More likely we will see more small bombings attempted in the future, unless the Poms can shut them down first.

      The idea is to keep everyone on their toes, leave everyone waiting every day for the next explosion, whip up hysteria and paranoia among the British people as they look over their shoulders. That would have the terrorists happier than if they had killed more people on 7/7.

      If this is the case, then it’s even more important that the British people stay solid, together and not afraid.

    1. Haveta say, Blair’s mushmouthin’ didn’t look very Churchillian… “We will fight them on the beaches” has apparently morphed into “We will engage them constructively in a limicole context…”

      Posted by richard mcenroe on 07/21 at 11:04 AM • permalink


    1. No offence meant Melanie but as the saying goes ‘you’ve obviously mistaken me for somebody who give a fuck’.

      The Guardian is a not-so passive supporter of terrorism so long as it’s killing western, capitalist, bourgeois smucks. Maybe when Polly at headquarters gets splattered with Bill’s blood and entrails flying from the next cubicle, Polly will understand what a fucken shit-for-brains cow she is and be shamed into shutting her gaping pie hole.

      Of course this is a fantasy scenario because the Guardian acts as a propaganda organ for international terrorism. They have the same goal and there’s unspoken agreement that neither will do anything that impedes the work of the other.

      Posted by Arty on 07/21 at 11:06 AM • permalink


    1. Blair has it right, he just said we’re at war with an idea, glad someone up high knows what’s going on.

      These sound to me more like copycats, some of them didn’t even go off properly, these people are simply violent idiots.

      Posted by Aging Gamer on 07/21 at 11:09 AM • permalink


    1. I’m sorry, I’ve only heard Blair speak a few times… but does he remind anyone else of John Cleese’s Robin Hood in Time Bandits…?

      Posted by richard mcenroe on 07/21 at 11:09 AM • permalink


    1. God, I just love John Howard.  His news conference with Tony Blair has been playing on all the cable news channels here in the states.  As is typical with these gatherings, a reporter asked the Australian Prime Minister a dumb ass question that indicated blame should be placed as usual, on the victims due to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Howard hit it out of the park in blunt, no nonsense language.  He pointed out that 9/11, Bali and other atrocities had been committed PRIOR to Iraq and that in fact, OBL had tied his hatred of Australia to the East Timor operation.  He then went on to school this stupid reporter about his tendency to blame victims instead of the terrorists.  Tony Blair was left to respond that he agreed “100%” and could not have said it better.  John Howard:  ya gotta love a guy who calls a spade a spade.

    1. Back in March when Blair was trying to pass an anti-terror bill, the Islington Socialists were telling us there was no threat, Blair was fear mongering, now the same suspects are telling us that there was a threat all along,because of the U.K.’s involvment in Iraq.

    1. Davo

      even the comments by Ellis pale into insignificance when compared to Red Ken’s

      Absolutely agree there.
      Golda Meir said back in the ‘60’s of the Palestinians..”if only they loved their children more than they hated Jews.” You could almost say the same about Red Ken..”If only he loved England more than he hated Jews”.  I don’t know much about where Bob Ellis stands on this.

    1. “If anything, it is the failure of multiculturalism to generate real reciprocal respect and provide legitimate avenues to social participation that provides the psychotic self-justification the murderers indulge in as part of their vision of nirvana.”

      says Andrew Jakubowicz in ‘The Age’.

      We just won’t learn from our long history of turning immigrants into suicide killers.

    1. #41 – sounds like they pumped half a clip into him when he was lying down – bloody good work.  This shows they are deadly serious about stopping them.  And if it turns out they shot the wrong person, I would say it sounds like they were clearly justified given the threat environment and it is a clear warning to other potential splodeydopes.

    1. Now that is a shoot to kill policy.

      I’m waiting for the backlash now

      “but if he was a suicide bomber why did he run instead of blowing himself up? The police should have wounded him, tackled him, talked to him or stroked his brow and whispered sweet nothings or something.”

      As for the age article. As usual the major point, that most immigrant groups seem to be able to come to a sufficient accomodation with the prevailing culture that they don’t strap bombs on and mingle with the common folk, is not satisfactorily addressed.
