Brits and resistance

Valid observation by Paul:

A sign of UK resilience (London's been under threat of terrorism for years; it's normal here): UK share indexes fall 2.26% but other countries' fall more.

This shouldn't be funny, but I involuntarily laughed at this:
The shockwaves were felt as far away as South Africa, where shares dropped more than 1.9%.

"This is all on the back on the London underground incidents, and particularly the bus blast," said one Johannesburg trader.

And that from a city where flamethrowers are used to prevent carjacking.
