Do You Remember When A Heart Attack Was Just A Heart Attack?

Images on social media show dozens of police and paramedics on the scene in Albermarle Street, near the corner with Grafton Street, Mayfair.

A man has died at the scene of a suspected cardiac arrest.

That’s….a hell of a lot of police and ambulances. Isn’t it?

Police responded quickly after fears the man had been poisoned.

Ah. Well, that’s maybe a bit more understandable. Sad to say.

A Met Police spokesman said: “Due to concerns the victim may have been exposed to a poison, specialist officers attended but found no evidence that would indicate the victim had been poisoned.

“There are no other reports of people being taken ill.

Cordons were put in place around the area to allow the emergency services to carry out their work.”

Police were seen putting a tented cover over the scene where the man collapsed.

What a world we now live in. And how it’s changed.

    GB plod etc has become insane and over-reacts to every public death.

    If we’d behaved like this in NI, country would have been paralysed. Stormont Hotel car-bomb ~0100 Sept. 1993, hotel did not close – I was next door.

    Put things in perspective* – Keep calm and carry on.

    * Daily Express, Sat 23 – Frightening: 50 (UK) people die from CO poisoning every year. No, 50 is ~0.000007% of population = nothing.

    You must remember that
    A heart attack is just a heart attack
    A sigh is just a sigh
    The fundamental things apply
    As time goes by.

    Maybe it is just me but what did the man die of? They don’t say.

    Did this guy have any links to the Russians? We need to know.
