London Bombs (40)

Friday 14th December 2007

The Antagonist discusses Peter Power, the man who is so keen to appear in the media discussing terrorism, but who went too far in describing his own role in the events of the 7th July 2005.

He features film of him being rather less keen to discuss that day when surprised by some people with a camera from "We are Change".

The role of Peter Power on 7th July 2005 is one of the unexplained aspects of that day, which has aroused considerable suspicion.

Power took part in a Panorama programme on 16th May 2004 which was a prediction and dramatisation of bombings on the underground: see this transcript.

He is also the person who, on 7th July 2005, said that it just happened that he was running a simulated exercise involving bombings on the underground at exactly the time that the bombs actually went off.

POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.

HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?

POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don't want to reveal their name but they're listening and they'll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they'd met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking and so on.
