Of course, one of the main aims of he bombers is to divide London. To turn race against race, creed against creed, turn the world's must multicultural city into a boiling cauldron of internecine hatred. Let's see if they've achieved it.

Mmmmm nope. Fraid not chaps. Here's a Muslim waiter calmly serving a curry to a punter. Behind him black, white, Scottish and Chinese people are all having a pint. Beyond them Yanks, Canucks, Nigerians and Argentinians are sharing wine on the tables outside the Hotel opposite.

Not quite what you expected, my bearded friends? Seems pretty... orderly, calm and pleasant doesn't it? Not the tenth circle of Hell you envisaged? Not the stinking pit of civil war and racial strife? About the nastiest thing in this pic is the price of a Martini at the Charlotte Street Hotel bar. Now that's frightening.
