Post Attack Assessment: Who?

The date of the London attacks strongly suggests Al Queda was the perpetrator.

Al Queda chose 9/11, a date memorable to Americans (Brits use 999 for emergencies, and Europeans 112). The date 7/7 is the same in both US and Brit date formats (Brits say 7 July, US says July 7), so ensuring both nations will remember it. If this theory is correct, look for attacks on 8/8 etc.

The 11 March (11/3) Spanish bomb was the exception - timed to tip the Spanish elections 3 days later.
