I’ve spent most of this evening watching the riots on BBC News, as well as following the thoughts of people though Twitter. It’s interesting how the feelings of everyone changed throughout the night. Late afternoon started with the occasional joke about hiding from the looters in Tottenham Hotspur’s trophy cabinet. Now, at the time of blogging, Twitter is awash with fury at what is taking place.

I must say, like many, I am outraged. There may be reasons for why the riots started, but the actions of those involved are totally unacceptable and have now gone far beyond what anyone can justify as “protests”

If there is any justice, all those responsible should be prosecuted and if found guilty, punished to the full extent of the law. Whatever people’s feeling towards the police, country and authority, does not excuse such mob-law behaviour.

Something needs to be done – fast. If the riots continue, members of the public will have enough and vigilante groups will form and attempt to stop the trouble by taking the law into their own hands. That’ll only make things worse.

A sad day for this country.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
