London July 7th

Personal Message

They sought to plant in us the seeds
of fear and hate and of despair;
To watch our resolution fail;
But we, now bloodied, stand unbowed;
Defiant, strong of will and proud;
Resolved that justice will prevail.

Remember 7th July 2005


" It is important however that those engaged in terrorism realise that our determination to defend our values and our way of life is greater than their determination to cause death and destruction to innocent people in the desire to impose extremism on the world. Whatever they do it is our determination that they will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear in our country and in other civilised nations throughout the world. "

Tony Blair, Prime Minister, 7th July 2005

Remember 7th July 2005

" This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty or the powerful. It is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers. It was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners; Black and white, Muslim and Christian, Hindu and Jew, young and old. Indiscriminate attempt to slaughter irrespective of any considerations for age, for caste, religion -- whatever. That isn't an ideology, it isn't even a perverted faith, it is just indiscriminant attempt at mass murder. "

Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London, 7th July 2005

Remember 7th July 2005

" This has been a terrible and most tragic atrocity that has cost many innocent lives. There will of course now be the most intense and complete security service action to make sure that we bring those responsible to justice. I would also pay tribute to the stoicism and resilience of the people of London. It is through terrorism that the people who have committed this terrible act express their values; And it's right at this moment that we demonstrate ours. I think we know what they're trying to do. They're 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're entitled to do; And they should not and they must not succeed. When they try to intimidate us we will not be intimidated. When they seek to change our country or our way of life by these methods, we will not be changed. When they try to divide our people or weaken our resolve, we will not be divided and our resolve will hold firm. We will show by our spirit and dignity and by a quiet and true strength that there is in the British people, that our values will long outlast theirs. The purpose of terrorism is just is to terrorise people; And we will not be terrorised. "

Tony Blair, Prime Minister, 7th July 2005

Remember 7th July 2005

"I want to express my admiration for the people of our capital city who in the aftermath of yesterday's bombings are calmly determined to resume their normal lives. That is the answer to this outrage. Sadly we in Britain have been all too familiur with acts of terror. And members of my generation, especially in this end of London, know we have been here before. But those who perpetrate these brutal acts against innocent people should know that they will not change our way of life. Attrocities such as these simply reinforce our sense of community, our humanity and our trust in the rule of law. That is the clear message from us all."

Queen Elizabeth II, 8th July 2005
