Today I've hardly turned on the television or looked at the internet - and it seems I've missed much of the breaking news today. The first I saw was a post on a messageboard by someone questioning the scale of the plot and the media attention. At lunchtime I went for a walk through the City and didn't feel much fear on the streets - but then the City is used to terrorist threats and getting on with life as normal. Once again also there are major police raids in East London.
The scale of the foiled attack astounds me - it seems beyond belief. Maybe that's why it seems so unreal at first.
