2 Explosions at the Boston marathon has claimed 3 lives and injured over 100 some serious.

Now I believe the London marathon is supposed to be held this Sunday and it must be a massive security problem.

How can you secure a massive site like the London Marathon.

I'm disappointed that you seem to have swallowed Galloway's lies.

I've just listened to him and he trots out the stuff about Thatcher destroying industry when most commentators agree that she took over that situation. More mines closed under Wilson and nearly twice as many people lost their jobs.

Then he trots out the nonsense about MPs claiming £3,750 to return for last week's recall.

I can only find stories saying this is the maximum MPs could claim. I haven't seen anything saying anybody actually did. But Galloway, of course, hopes to mislead the gullible by making it seem all MPs got that amount.

The comment I liked came after he finished when a woman MP said his protest about PMQs being suspended might have more merit if he actually spent time in the Commons.

You have to laugh at someone using the politics of hate to claim that Thatcher used the politics of hate.

Why did Parliament NEED to be recalled, for one session, at our expense?

There was going to be an interminable week of nonsense, anyway, so why was it so urgent for MPs to come and 'fawn' over her?

But we'll never agree about it!!

Of course they didn't we all know how careful MP's are in what they claim in regards to expenses.

Why is ANYBODY going on about that woman when this thread is about Boston and the bombings, if you want to argue about her start a new thread.

Mind you I did notice who brought her up.

'Mind you I did notice who brought her up.'

What a snivelling, snide comment to make.

I know who I am. You know who I am. Why not say it rather than the weasely 'you know who' approach?

I mentioned Thatcher because security for her funeral must be an increased concern after yesterday's event in Boston.

There will, almost certainly, be one or more false alarms and it needs people to stay calm to prevent a false alarm turning into a tragedy.

Then stop talking about her and maybe just say a few words about those poor people who were injured and killed yesterday.

Getting back to the Boston bombings I am getting a little tired of the wall to wall coverage of it on the BBC, yes three people died and many were injured but the rest of the world has not stopped.

The BBC has used every program on today's television it could to give this incident more airtime, it even interviewed MP's who are going to be running in Sunday's London marathon.
