Man drinking pint while fleeing terror becomes symbol of London spirit



A photo of victims fleeing the horrific attack in London Bridge has become a surprising symbol of Londoners’ resilience.

This is because one of the people caught up in the attack, part of a crowd running away from the scene, is holding his pint.

The unnamed man managed to run down the road clutching his drink, without spilling even a drop.

1. But he's not the only one carrying a drink -

why isn't the woman also a symbol? She's not even running.

18. Sorry. I don't know current prices in central London.

Or any other part of London, for that matter.

I haven't visited London in nearly 25 years. I miss it.

Love to all of you over there...

11. Hurray up, please. It's "time."

Reminds me of getting a case of beer for the bunker when the VC blew the Cam Ranh Bay ammo dump in 1971.

12. I also liked...

The man who insisted on going back to the pub to pay his bill and leave a tip.

16. Another Fun Side Story

I liked how the patrons of the pub in Borough Market threw bottles, pint glasses, and chairs at terrorists as they tried to get in.

The Brits have the unenviable cultural experience of decades of terror attacks. Cheers for them for fighting back!
