Nope, Nope, Nope

There is nothing for sale, at any markdown, that would make it worth entering a crowd like this. I think it was Lawdog that said that the I.Q. of a crowd is the I.Q. of the dumbest person in the crowd divided by the number of people. This is one loud noise away from people being crushed against the walls.

Actually literally just read that IQ of a crowd definition today in a Terry Prachett Discworld novel (one of the early ones).

Looks like Lawdog was absolutely right.

Terrorists, or rather the fear of terrorists, have reduced Londoners to panic-prone sheeple. Two idiots start a scuffle and nine people are injured in the stampede out of the Underground Station; someone shouts "Shots fired!" and the Police lock down central London.
