the best way to fight terrorism is to go to work the following morning

I'll say this loud: the best way to fight terrorism is to go to work the following morning.

If we tighten security, bring in new ID cards, install security cameras and all that jazz, all that will happen is that, much like in America, we will exchange personal freedoms and a little extra cash every tax day for nothing more than the illusion of safety. If we run around screaming, if we allow FUD to dominate us, the terrorists have what they want, and they have won. What we need to do - indeed, what most people are doing - is what the United Kingdom does best: rebuild, heal the wounded, bury the dead and then just go back to work.
