London's Burning: The Clash

Yep, my city's on fire, as can be seen on this stream of twitpic entries- hover to see the pics on the page. The stream of tweets are very much the kind of thing I expect and love to see from my fellow Londoners, including one tweet about how "I paid £6 for this pint, and I;m not moving until it's done!"

Stoicism is all very well, but I kinda wish my office would get evacuated so I could go home...

Yes, that would be good, too. Where are you?

I'm on Greek Street - the view has been pretty impressive, but I think the worst is over now.

Good to hear. Though it'd be nice if you could go home. It's not like you're going to get any work done.

No, it's WAY too distracting! We've got a collaborative playlist going:

I might add some to that.

Makes you proud to be British, doesn't it?

Just as long as it's not in the Lewisham area. I don't need more chaos.

Which was pretty much the attitude of the pubgoers when avariel_wings and I were evacuated from the Red Lion near the Houses of Parliament because of a bomb scare at Downing Street. The policeman tells us all to leave NOW, and just about everyone in there looked at him and went straight back to finishing their pints. ^_^

How is it not news that people anywhere would pay six pounds for a pint during a recession?!

I love me some drinking as much as the next person, but you thar Londoners must be paid about twice as much as everyone else!

So everyone running screaming from the pub in Doctor Who's Turn Left episode was out of character? *g*
