    Tribute to London/Depleted Brits

    David Taylor's Tribute to London site has now had 2000 hits since Thursday, with 55 comments from around the world.

    Frankly, I prefer the simple message of Tribute to London:

    We stand in solidarity with the people of London following the terrorist attacks of Thursday, 7th July 2005.

    To this from Tom Nairn:

    Since the 7 July attacks, London and the world have rung with slogans of depleted Britishness: steadfast grit, business as usual, we can take it (especially Londoners). Understandable in the immediate context, these reflexes won’t do for democrats.

    Maybe we should start a website called the 'depleted Brits'.

    I have tabled a Statement of Opinion in the National Assembly, along the lines of the Tribute site.
