Hot Air has all the details of a car bomb found outside of a London nightclub. Sky News is the best source for first hand information, including the fact that it was a quick thinking cop who disarmed the bomb before it went off:
Sky News sources say one of the first police officers on the scene of the London West End car bomb may have saved dozens of lives by diffusing the explosives before the bomb squad arrived.
It is believed the quick-thinking cop recognized that the car was wired to blow up, jumped in and disconnected the trigger device, thought to be a mobile phone.
This backs up an eye-witness account of a police officer briefly entering the metallic green Mercedes before running for cover.
People are being warned to stay vigilant after the discovery of the “massive” car bomb, which could have killed hundreds of nightclub revellers.
The device, which contained 60 litres of petrol, a large amount of nails and several gas canisters, was found in the Mercedes early this morning.
Park Lane has also been closed to traffic due to a suspect vehicle in an underground car park that police believe is connected to the attempted bombing in Haymarket.
Without that heroic officer the news coming out of England would be much different.
There’s a lot of folks blogging this, but 186k Per Second has a must read about the nutrootery going on at some popular left wing sites who are claiming that England’s last nail bomber, a National Socialist named David Copeland was a “right wing nut.” This is interesting because National Socialism is far to the left of most every political philosophy except one; Communism.
It is also fairly obvious that we’ll find out the bomber has connections to the religion of “peace” once the investigation is done. Seems like only yesterday I was blogging about left wing sites propagandizing for Islamism, now they’re also covering for their car bombing allies. When will we realize that the “far left” is as much our enemy as Al-Qaeda?
UPDATE: Fox just reported that an Internet posting saying “Rejoyce, London shall be bombed” has been uncovered.
