Inevitable, but sad

The report on Emergency Services’ response on 7/7

I suppose the dust has mostly settled now, and thus the timing of the report. I know every official body has to be held to account, and only from admitting weaknesses can they improve.

It’s still sad though, that this now clouds the initial impression of a responsive and efficent emergency plan. It shouldn’t detract from the people who did such brave things that day, who went above and beyond. And it will make us better prepared for any next time, as much as we ever can be.

What is shocking is that LUL still have no provision for underground communications. The radios don’t work in tunnels, and surely even on a basic operational level this is a huge risk? I don’t know, can’t communicate, can’t have air-conditioning… not too pleasant down there now, is it? Sort it out, please.
