Last night the DJ on Virgin Radio was playing very mellow music. It was very soothing after the horrific attacks in London yesterday: Van Morrison. REM. Simon and Garfunkel. U2.

He said he’d been for a bike ride through London that evening just before going in to work and the thing that struck him: silence. The city was quiet.

I was proud of Blair’s response:

“It is through terrorism that the people who have committed this terrible act express their values and it is right at this moment that we demonstrate ours,” said Mr Blair.

And Ken Livingstone’s:

“They are trying to use the slaughter of innocent people to cow us, to frighten us out of doing the things that we want to do, of trying to stop us going about our business as normal as we are entitled to do.

“They should not and they must not succeed.”

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
