The attempted London bombings

In view of the likely political fallout, it is worth emphasising that the London bombs did not fail because of identity cards or extra police powers or CCTV cameras.

They failed because of ordinary people going about their business and keeping their eyes open.

And the would-be-bombers inability to make something explode on cue. That helped a bit as well.

Fortunately, making bombs isn't that easy.
