Here in the UK the vermin are rioting. I guess I can't let this go without blogging, it is pretty amazing.
What started with the pretext of someone being shot by the Police in London has spread amongst the vermin like wildfire. They've been using Blackberry's because they think the police can't intercept messages - these jerks have obviously never heard of warrants, Duh! Basically it's the witless, lawless, feckless and workshy's version of the Christmas sales, mainly an excuse for looting. There were some on the TV tonight whining about not being shown respect - bloody well earn it then!
Tonight Manchester City Centre has seen major shops attacked and petrol bombed, cars set alight (and the BBC's Radio Manchester radio car overturned). Let's be clear, this is not a racial issue. Most of the victims in London (Europe's melting pot) seem to have been of immigrant descent (perhaps I should say 'recent' immigrant descent - go back far enough and we're all of immigrant descent in the UK). Reports describe the vermin as being both white and black. Unlike the 1980s riots this isn't about real desperate poverty and economic desolation, I know; I grew up in the seventies and was looking for work in the eighties.
I feel sorry for those dirctly impacted by these vermin, people have literally just escaped with their lives having been burnt out of flats above shops. But at least the majority of the vermin will get their dues (expect heavy jail terms).
All this said, it makes for damned compelling rolling TV news...
It's like watching 28 Hours Later.
