Ferners in London







  • There have been stories of people jumping off the bridge. Into the Thames FFS! Have you seen how that mutha flows? Of course may be apocryphal but certainly there has been one woman pulled out of the river. Alive thankfully, but if she did jump in, Darwin has been robbed of a candidate.

    The reports are referring to it as being treated as a terrorist attack but a lone perp with a knife only (as reported at this time). Points to nut job but we will see.

    I honestly don't see how you could say that. If you think you're in a life or death situation, generally the first thought of escape is the one you will take.

    If some one came at me with a knife and I thought I was in trouble, I wouldn't think twice about hoisting into the river

    Yep... I'd been thinking that one through, and there's not many places to go on the bridge with a 4WD coming at you and presumably traffic nearby... not sure how deep it is, but if I was by myself and the 4WD was getting too close I'd be lining it up too. Goodness knows what you do if you have the kids with you though...



  • Fuck. Hope friend and family of the UK Fern crew are ok.



  • there is a Facebook thing that people can click and it sends an alert to all their friends saying they are ok...I got one saying a Ferner in London is ok.

    Just horrific, very little you can do to prepare for an attack using a vehicle as your weapon on a normal road.



  • Rest easy peeps. I'm still here.



  • You've got to be pretty unlucky odds wise to get caught up in an isolated incident like this but thanks for the thoughts.
    I work in E1 hipsterville where the worst thing someone could do is remove all the beard grooming oil from the shelves so nowhere near this. The missus had her building in lockdown though for a while and the cops where out in force all over target spots like train stations carrying the big toys.
    I just treat the possibility of this as being aware so you notice anything as soon as possible and get the fuck out of the area as quick as you can.



  • This isn't a terror attack and it's piss poor of everybody - journo's, media, PM's who are labelling this it.

    It's a nutjob. Nutjobs have always existed and always will. Long after terrorist organisation have been wiped out, nutjobs will still be there.

    Every shitty little fucking thing that happens shouldn't be credited to these fuckheads.

    To be fair, the Acting Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police referred to it as a terrorist attack. I guess that makes it official, doesn't it?



  • well it would meet the definition of terrorism?

    the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

    Of course we don't know the reasons...



  • Or it could be that these organisations seek out mentally ill/mentally weak people and get them to do their dirty work?



  • @JC Not really the point I'm making honestly.

    Bloomberg news has written right in front of me on their ticker "Attacker assumed to be influenced by international terrorism " & "suspect Islamist-related terrorism".

    Which means immediately the likes of ISIS etc have some justifiable right to claim / own etc.



  • @MajorRage Well as long as Bloomberg is correcting the Acting Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police...

    I wonder if the perpetrator was known to police for his charitable acts before this awful accident?

    Sadly it'll be that on top of everything else that the swines in those organisations do...

    The internet is perfect for this

  • @antipodean Still not the point.

    Anyway, nothing else really to be commenting on until more facts come to hand. .
