Today in London’s rebel past: letterbomb sent to MP, 1972.

An explosive letter was sent to MP at House of Commons, on January 22nd, 1972.

Well we couldn’t find out much about this… saw it on a list of ‘incidents’, but haven’t found out much more. There was alot of armed activity going on at the time, what with the IRA and the Angry Brigade, doing their thang. We’re not into representative democracy, MPs can kiss our sweet backsides, but we aren’t generally in favour of letterbombs, bit too indiscriminate, and you can’t really blow up a social relationship.
