Malcolm has a quick one on
The great 7/7 panic

Here's the consensus of opinion from today's front pages:
MI5 in the dock as terror trial shows link to suicide bombers - Daily Telegraph
How MI5 missed the links to July 7 suicide bombers - The Guardian
Why didn't MI5 stop July 7th? - Daily Mail
Angry families ask how July 7 bombers got through MI5 net - The Herald
MI5 let the ringleader behind 7/& slip the net - The Press and Journal ("The Voice of the North")
Bomb victim's family hit out at MI5 - South Wales Echo

And that's without going below the headlines.

Ditto Channel 4 News. Ditto the Today Progamme. Etc. Etc.

So now we know whom to blame.

For those with a wider horizon, or a longer memory, here's a thought:

Today we were unlucky, but remember we only have to be lucky once. You have to be lucky always "
PIRA statement to Thatcher Government after Brighton bomb, 1984.
