    Have to say, I do think there’s an element of retconning when it comes to how we responded to the IRA bombs. I for example remember there not being any rubbish bins in London for about a decade, hardly stiff upper lip stuff.

    That was common sense, though. Compare the actual public response to the two events - look at the genuine hysteria after 7/7 compared with the British response after Warrington, as an example. There was anger, but not this blind, idiotic panic that seems to afflict the nation now.
