London

London is my third city from a personal point of view, and the first from the political one.
Not only because most of the best politicians in history worked there but also due to the political behaviour of the Londiners. London is the kind of city I would like Barcelona to be, and the UK is the kind of democracy (I have written it before here several times) that I would like for Spain. This is why what happened yesterday hurted me as hurted me New York, as hurted me Madrid.

Madrid was attacked for removing a government and making the Spanish democracy kneel and surrender to the fanatism. They won.
London has been attacked, like New York, because it is a symbol of Freedom, of democracy, of the power of individuals against power of the group, the secta, the fanatism. Spain did not stand, USA did, and I know that British will. And that's why today more than ever I would love to be English, being able to give my vote to politicias like Tony Blair (amazing his article about the EU we really need from last Monday), sure that all my country will point to the responsible of this tragedy, Bin Laden, and will not have rest till the threaten is distroyed, no matter at which cost.

You led the Freedom against the nazis when you were totally alone. You, together with the United States, are leading it again. There is no place for treats, for alliances with the enemy, for surrender. Like in 1940:

"We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields, and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender!"

Pero tú no decías que de poesía y narrativa no tenías ni idea? Pues callaíto.
