Well, this is the longest two hours in history. This morning the authorities in Mumbai were saying that they’d be done and dusted in a couple of hours and six hours later they’re still going at it.
I really don’t understand what’s going on down there, there’s something we’re not being told. I’m confident that if this was in London or Birmingham or Manchester it would have been over by lunchtime yesterday. The SAS or someone similar would have been in there, the terrorists would be in body bags and the hostages back home with their families. But these lot, well versed in anti-terrorism from decades of India-Pakistan strife, are still fannying round nearly two days later.
I smell a rat (and I’m pretty sure it’s not in the curry).
