Rudy Can’t Fail

Turns out Rudy Giuliani was in London this morning:

“I was right near Liverpool (St) station when the first bombing took place, so I could hear the sirens and then kept hearing reports of different bombing, in different parts of the city.
“As we were walking through and driving through the streets of the city, it was remarkable how the people of London responded calmly and bravely.”
He said the hearts of New Yorkers would go out to Londoners.
“We feel a tremendous empathy with them. I think every New Yorker would join me in saying we feel we very much understand what you are going through,” he said.
“This is a difficult time, but the people of London have responded in the exactly right way, with bravery and by moving forward.
“The emergency services people appear to have responded as if they have been very, very well trained and as if they were expecting attacks, they seem to be prepared for it.
“In a strange way a lot of our response to September 11 was modelling ourselves as much as we could on the people of London during the Second World War and the incredible way they withstood the attacks during the battle of Britain.”

Quite a refreshing change from the Galloways of the world.

    “Rudy can’t fail”
    Yeah. Given his track record they should immediately make him mayor.

    Or maybe swap him in for a certain pantload MP.
    BTW, great Clash reference.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    I figured you’d like it, ‘Fly. The additional irony of it being from “London Calling” should be noted, as well.

  4. Ken Summers says:

    He does indeed, Lisa.

  5. nobrainer says:

    I’m starting to think that I never want to be in the same city as Rudy.
