Even assuming there is/was a plot, or four plots, or 24, I'd consider this week a bit of a result if I were OBL, and if economic damage to the Great Satan is part of the band's repertoire. Not so much a second album as a secret warm-up gig before the Big Comeback.

I keep getting this idea for a screenplay about some Al Qaeda terrorists who hijack the Eurostar, aiming to run it off the rails at the Waterloo end for a massive coup de theatre and huge loss of life. The tension builds and builds throughout the film until the final denouement, when it is revealed that the Al Qaedas had a fundamental misunderstanding about the nature of points switching and end up in a siding outside Clapham.

In the parallel universe in which I spend increasingly long periods, that script would feature a cast of Ealing regulars: Cecil Parker, Alastair Sim, George Cole - oo, and a younger Bernard Breslaw as Bin Laden.

Or, with the Eurostar film, the look of shock on their faces as it enters London and slows down to 30mph behind a South-Eastern Shunter, finally stopping entirely just outside Waterloo.
