"there could have been had [sic] a power surge which could have had quite catastrophic casualty levels.
We have always been aware of that on the Underground."

The Antagonist would like to thank Bridget for her comments, the information contained there-in, say, "there's more - a mysterious unexplained fifth device", and state that where any relevant information is repeated, it is far better that the facts are repeated than to forget that a few facts do still exist in amongst the ongoing media hysteria which seems to ignore them entirely.
As explained in detail in this post, The Antagonist is of the opinion that the 'exploding' bus was a component part of Peter Power's 1,000 man exercise in central London on the morning of 7/7 and has been used to create the illusion that something other than corporate manslaughter is responsible for the horrific deaths on the London Underground that day. This theory also explains many anomalies of the Number 30 bus journey, including an almost packed top deck of people left standing, apparently otherwise unharmed, after the 'explosion' that managed to blow the roof clean off the bus (see photos in this post). It also explains why the bus was curiously diverted from its normal route along Euston Road into Tavistock Square where it 'exploded'.
Why was the bus diverted to Tavistock Square? Well, according to the information posted in the comments elsewhere on this blog, Tavistock Square contains none other than:
"Fortress GB, located at Tavistock House, Tavistock Square, partners to ICTS (UK) Ltd, - railway security management specialists who are engaged in several security projects for London Underground."
This information is true and knowing for whom the crisis management exercise was organised is a key piece of information in understanding the events of 7/7. That Peter Power has since claimed commercial confidentiality for his exercise to remove himself from the loop of questioning is utter nonsense, especially in light of the massive international anti-terrorist hunt that is the focus of global media attention. Then again, he is an ex-Scotland Yard anti-terror operative so he's undoubtedly still having a number of off-the-record conversations with senior ex-colleagues at some level.
If plain clothes policemen who are not required to identify themselves as such can shoot innocent individuals, offer token apologies for such a travesty, and in the same breath say, "there's going to be more shootings of innocent people" without causing consternation, surely they can stretch to asking Peter Power, Visor Consultants, Fortress GB, ICTS, and associated organisations a few questions about what they were up to on July 7th? And, if the police won't do it, what happened to the concept of journalistic integrity and following facts and valid leads rather than generating mindless rumour and speculation?
Fortress GB and ICTS (UK) Ltd are precisely the type of organisations for whom Peter Power's Visor Consultants might organise a large 1,000-man crisis management exercise and The Antagonist does not believe that any confidentiality can be claimed by any party involved in that exercise in light of the ongoing international anti-terrorist hunt. Yet, if The Antagonist were to suggest that Peter Power be given the same right to confidentiality as Jean Charles de Menezes had when plain clothes police officers bundled him and shot him in the head seven times while sitting on top of him, there would, no doubt, be an outrage.
When considering the notion of the exploding bus being a product of Peter Power's crisis management exercise, it is crucial to remember that prior knowledge of these exercises is kept to a minimum - a strictly need-to-know basis - to ensure that the emergency services and the individuals involved react naturally and 'treat it as real as possible'.
If you don't inform the emergency services, you certainly don't inform members of the general public either and, as no-one would tolerate the random exploding of innocent civilians as part of routine crisis management exercises that take place all the time, these exercises employ clever pyrotechnics, stuntmen, and actors ('players' as Peter Power refers to them) to portray the parts of the 'civilians' and 'victims' involved in the crisis to be managed - just like in the movies where lots of things go bang all the time leaving lots of apparently horrific walking wounded, dead people and body parts in the aftermath.
This is precisely how you blow the roof clean off a diverted double-decker bus and leave a bundle of people standing on the top deck looking otherwise unharmed because, being hired hands, they knew the roof was going to be lifted off, with the back of the bus being the source of the energy required to do so. The Antagonist has no access to the remnants of the bus to determine whether the bus curiously diverted to Tavistock Square had been otherwise tampered with to create the devastating appearance and leave a top deck full of survivors but this must also be considered as a factor in the staging of a realistic 1,000 man crisis simulation exercise.
As Islam is a common media theme in connection with events of the last three weeks, the perfect analogy for the bus being diverted to end-up in front of Fortress GB's offices while a 1,000-man crisis management exercise that they might have organised was being conducted, is that of, "if the mountain won't come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to the mountain." Far easier to move a specially designed transportation device to be in front of the offices of a company who may have organised the 1,000-man crisis management exercise than it is to move the offices of the company to the transportation device. To undertake the latter would of course involve rather widespread prior knowledge and we already know prior knowledge doesn't apply in these rehearsal situations. Even the driver didn't know, but he was never going to be harmed, which is why he can be interviewed as a genuine victim of a 'bomb blast'.
If The Antagonist's observations are correct and the Number 30 bus full of stuntmen and actors was diverted as part of Peter Power's 1,000 man crisis management exercise in Central London into Tavistock Square and 'exploded' in front of the offices of Fortress GB, then we are left only with the simultaneous 'exploding' trains to explain which MetroNet and the media attributed for some time on the day to a power surge. This is a perfectly normal and rational explanation for what occurred, supports the survivor accounts perfectly and yet this story has somehow become an incredulous conspiracy that is beyond the realms of comprehension.
It is the belief of The Antagonist that the original power surge story was changed when it was recognised quite how many people had been killed by the power surge. Somewhere along the line, in the upper echelons of the corridors of power, it was decided that, the blood from another UK rail tragedy would, yet again, not be found on corporate hands.
If this is what did indeed occur, then perhaps it might fall to someone with the wit, resources and connections of the ex-Manager of Intelligence Operations at the CIA and then Executive Assistant to the Director of the CIA, none other than London Underground Commissioner Robert Kiley, to dream-up such a cunning cover-up for the needless deaths that occurred on an Underground system under his watch.
You can fill the media with nonsense about terrorists and bombs for which little or no real evidence appears to exist, and you can hunt down all the off-white people the world over in a global crusade against Islam as is glaringly evident. You can even shoot innocent people seven times in the head in supposedly free and democractic countries on the basis of no justification at all, just because they look a little different to an anachronistic concept of what an Englishman might look like. You can do all of this with no little or no comeback and you can also then go on to say that you're going to do it all again.
But, you can only get away with this irrational madness, all of which is based on unfounded 'beliefs', 'coulds', and 'mights', and on the information from anonymous 'security experts' 'intelligence experts' and 'police sources', if the world is convinced that there are terrorists everywhere.
You can also only get away with it, while those that are still imbued with the innate gift of curiosity are in the minority. Those days are long gone and the powers that be know it. They created the Internet to save themselves from Communists and in the process of so doing created an Internet media revolution that liberated information for everyone, thereby enabling the opinions of everyone - no matter how valid - to be read the world over, right alongside the now largely outdated opinions of the supposedly educated few.
You can get away with the media madness as described above for a time. What you cannot do is change the few facts that underlie what actually occurred on the fateful day of July 7, 2005. Nor can you change the truth which links those precious few facts together.
The truth, like so many other things, cannot be suppressed indefinitely and, in the absence of any visible media cooperation to so do, it is down to the people of the United Kingdom - the likes of Bridget Dunne and anyone else that dares to question the facts such as we can know anything to be - to ensure that the truth is reached.
Sooner would be infinitely better than later.
