This is not a good time right now. I was up most of the night worrying. There was trouble in my city too and I am at a loss in many ways to explain to those of you who don’t live in Great Britain what is going on. It is hard enough to understand it from here.
I hope my friends in London are safe and that the Government, holding emergency meetings today, (Cameron finally having managed to return from holiday last night) will come up with a positive strategy for dealing with these troubles.
I have been on protests in my time, but I have never indulged in any violence to people or property and I am dismayed by what is going on.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in our lovely capital city and the other cities where we normally live in peace together.
Our police are not routinely armed, they don’t carry guns without special permission. All this will change and our world will be a less safe place as a result if these riots carry on.
Please don’t comment asking me to explain, because I can’t.
