    Mummy, mummy!

    Am I being unfair?

    I read this and thought:

    ...bloody good job none of the Axis air forces could reach the US mainland in the second World War or the yanks would have surrendered in early 1942.

    One aircraft flies over New York and people have to take the day off sick? Good grief.

    Well I have to admit that if I lived in New York, and saw two planes flying low between the high rise buildings, I think in light of what happened in 2001, I would have pulled a sickie and been a tad frightened. A bit of stupid thing to do really in my opinion!!
    if you love the life you live then you'll get a lot more done

    A bit stupid that's putting it mildly. It is unbelievable that someone must of actually said 'I've got a brilliant idea blah blah blah' and others agreed to it

    So - good job there's more intestinal fortitude in London, otherwise every time someone walked onto the tube with a rucksack it would have cleared the carriage...

    It's not intestinal fortitude, it's the knowledge that the Met would shoot them in the head before anyone needs to worry about it.

    Yes it does seem rather blown out of all proportion - but its mainly the medias fault - the negative reactions are they only ones they publish, as usual.

    Only if they can finish their SUV 'rush hour tour of little known South London' in time.
