The BBC‘s Clive Myrie has slammed the ‘intolerant’ Islamists who slaughtered 52 people including a close friend in the 7/7 terrorist atrocity, claiming their attack was inspired by their failure to ‘buy into the idea of a multicultural Britain’. 

In his autobiography, Everything is Everything, Myrie, the Mastermind host revealed how he was left angry by the ‘senseless’ death of his friend Miriam Hyman, a picture editor who was a guest at his wedding.

Hyman, 31, had been travelling on a double-decker bus near King’s Cross train station when it was blown up.

‘I was angry at the men’s failure to have bought into the idea of a multicultural Britain, their failure as brown people to buy into the values of tolerance and freedom that underpin liberal democracy,’ Myrie wrote. 

The BBC star also noted that three out of the four bombers were British-born, second-generation immigrants, ‘like me,’ and said he felt ‘overwhelming anger’ towards the terrorists.  Three of the bombers were British-born sons of Pakistani immigrants and one was a convert born in Jamaica. 

Three bombs exploded within fifty seconds of each other in what was the worst terror attack in British history. Suicide bombers Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, Shehzad Tanweer, 22, Hasib Hussain, 18, and Germaine Lindsay, 19, met at Luton station that morning. They took a train to King’s Cross in London and separated to carry out their deadly missions.

At 8:49 am, the first exploded on a 6-car London Underground train on the Circle line, around 100 yards along the tunnel from Liverpool Street.  The second device exploded in the second car of another 6-car London Underground that had just left the busy platform at Edgware Road.

A third bomb was detonated on the Piccadilly line, just under a minute after it departed King’s Cross.

Almost one hour after the attacks on the Underground, a fourth bomb was detonated on the top deck of a number 30 double-decker bus.

Myrie, who is originally from Bolton, Lancashire, also wrote: ‘It was the worst terrorist atrocity on British soil.

‘My wife Catherine worked with one of the victims who died. Miriam came to our wedding and the beautiful pottery she gave us as a present 25 years ago still sits in our home.’

Ken Livingstone, who was London mayor at the time, said: ‘July 7, 2005 was a day we will never forget.

‘It was a day in which many people were caught up in an act of horrific criminal violence and a day when Londoners also demonstrated why this city is the greatest in the world.

‘Londoners from all communities united against the appalling acts of terror and chose hope and humanity over division.

‘I hope that people across London today will spare some time to reflect on what happened five years ago, the people whose lives were lost and those who were caught up in the events, and the great bravery and solidarity of Londoners we saw on and after the 7th.’
