Like many New Zealanders I was up late last night trying to contact family in London. Because it’s the busy summer season the city is teeming with tourists so a larger number of countries are pulled into the drama. Both my sisters are there right now. One lives there with her husband, the other is visiting with her family. My husband’s sister is there with her family. And they all have other friends who are there at the same time.
When I lived in London bomb scares and disruption were normal. You coped, you walked the miles to get from A-B etc. And when the IRA weren’t doing it the infrastructure would fail and you’d be no better off.
