Following today’s bombings,commenting on Geodata and technology does not seem too relevant today.
However these words spoken over 60 years ago seem just right today.
“These cruel, wanton, indiscriminate bombings of London are, of course, a part of Hitler’s invasion plans. He hopes, by killing large numbers of civilians, and women and children, that he will terrorise and cow the people of this mighty imperial city, and make them a burden and anxiety to the Government…Little does he know the spirit of the British nation, or the tough fibre of the Londoners…who have been bred to value freedom far above their lives. ”
Winston S Chruchill, September 1940
As a Londoner I’m proud to say give us a day or two and we will be back to nomal, we have dealt with terrorists before and a whole lot worse. Next Saturday I and the family will attend a Re-enactment of Monty Python’s Fish Slapping Dance down at Teddington lock.. how can any terrorist hope to defeat people like us!!
