The weekend reaction in London to the bombs - a Sunday afternoon on the village green watching the cricket, in the shadow of the old church and the ancient oak and beech trees. What peace, what serenity.

Thing was, it was a great example of what Ken Livingstone said in his speech - the fantastic tolerance of all in London. One team was two thirds white guys, with a third afro-carribeans, the other team was asian, possibly indian, with one or two afro carribeans. Everyone wore white, as is the rules, and eleven men went against eleven men. I'm not sure who won, but the first team had scored 180 runs, and the second team were on 130, with a good few overs to go.
