Shoulder to Shoulder with our Cockney Allies

The People's Republic often criticises London (in jest of course), and while not looking forward to the London-centric press focusing on the Olympic Games for the next few days, we certainly wouldn't have wanted it to be replaced by the tragic events that took place this morning.

We offer our heartfelt condolences and sympathies to all who have been affected by the attacks.

The people of Birmingham have of course experienced the pain of terrorist attack ourselves, most notably in 1974 with the Birmingham Pub Bombings, which was (excluding Lockerbie) previously the worst attack on mainland Britain.

We love to compete against London, but this is a record we neither want nor want to see passed on to London or for that matter any other city.
