What was that we just said? Well, that mostly wraps things up for Londonist in '06... Yeah right. What we should have said is that mostly wraps things up for London in '06 because according to ABC we are ho ho ho fucked. Check out that headline:

London Braces for Attack; 'Miracle' If There Isn't One

Are you braced? We're not braced. We have a nut roast to worry about and a Christmas episode of Doctor Who to slag off. That should be enough.

British intelligence and law enforcement officials have passed on a grim assessment to their U.S. counterparts, "It will be a miracle if there isn't a terror attack over the holidays in London," a senior American law enforcement official tells ABCNews.com.

Well it is the season for miracles...

"It is not a matter of if there will be an attack, but how bad the attack will be," an intelligence official told ABCNews.com. Authorities say they are seeking at least 18 suspected suicide bombers.

The only silver lining is that with the Standard already going over the top about the bloody weather they haven't really left themselves much room to maneuver if something really bad does happen. If, instead of a headline, on the news-stands we just see a photo of the paper's editorial staff masturbating over projected circulation figures we'll know something exploded.

Dear Londonist,

Since discovering you in 2006 you have brightened up my little Londony existence - updating me on the random shit that goes on in London and helped me while away the work hours....

Thank you.

Enjoy your collective Christmas break and continue the "top quality reporting" in 2007!

PS. I've gone to events you recommeded, read books you suggested AND I even bought one of your Christmas present ideas! On second thoughts, maybe Londonist is influencing my life a little too much.... Stop it.

Unless you are American, the word is spelt MANOEUVRE.

Hey TW - Thanks for taking the time out to let us know we're doing something right! I made sure the whole Londonist team saw your comment so thanks for the Christmas glow now radiating from them. Stick with us in the new year as we have a lot of interesting crap still to come.

Merry Christmas!

Aidan - Oops, that'll teach me for using the Firefox spell checker :) Let's just say it was intentional to help cement the special relationship we have with the USA during this time of heightened security (I'll nip in and change it once I've had another brandy)
