It's pleasantly ironic that you recommend the wholly-US-centric-not-used-anywhere-else-in-the-world mixed-endian month/day/year date order as a "traditional English phrasing".
Still, at least the 7/7 bombings don't have the same endianness ambiguity as the 11/9 attacks. We should be thankful for small mercies.
There's no endianness or ambiguity when the month is written as a word instead of a number.
It isn't, however, correct to write “the” or “of” in the middle of a date: it's purely a spoken construct. If you want to be picky, it'd be “7th July” with proper superscripting, but I'd be surprised if an El Reg article managed that.
dammned clever these Russkies
