Oh dear...

21:47 - Here I am sitting down after a great night out for dinner, braised lamb shanks with mash, and I see on the news that 4 bombs have gone off in Bali.

This means two things... 1) the war on terrorism isn't working and 2) the war on terrorism isn't working.

So far 8 people have been confirmed dead... But knowing what most holiday places are like in SE Asia, the streets would have been full of traffic and the sidewalks full of pedestrians. 2 bombs have gone off in a 4 Seasons hotel and 1 in the Matahari department store. I can see that death toll climbing sharply.

UPDATE #1
23:43 - The death toll has now risen to 19 with 51 injured, one Australian has been confirmed dead.
