I feel like flying the flag!

In mourning for those killed and injured in yesterday's senseless acts of slaughter of innocent people in London

I have always shunned the idea of 'flying the flag' in this blog, except for the occasional use I have made of a Union Flag fying at half staff at specially sad times. However, in the light of yesterday's events in London, I am also adding a proud Union Flag, fluttering in the breeze, to this blog to symbolise just how I feel at present. This is not beligerent in any way, but I feel the need simply to make a clear statement that we in the UK have no intention of changing fundamentally how we live, whatever outrages may be visited upon us; we will survive and prevail.
