Car Trouble, Oh Yeah!
London burnt this week - my new home, where I work, the city which I've fallen in love with again and I'm angry that it's been taken over by mindless idiots with nothing better to do. I was brought up to respect people and property, always say please, and thank bus drivers when you get off! I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would think it's acceptable to smash up someone's shop/home, burn peoples' livelihoods to the ground and walk away without a care in the world. The closest the rioting/looting got to me was Wood Green (15 mins up the road) which was completely ransacked apart from, ironically, a shop called Loot that was untouched. The morons who casually looted JD Sports (and had the audacity to try trainers on outside for size) should expect a knock on their door anytime soon. Then Camden, my old stomping ground, under siege it seems.
Like I said, Crouch End is quiet and hopefully the rest of London is too. Maybe all the idiots will stay in tonight, posting their lootings on ebay, bragging about what they got on Twitter...that sort of thing. Carry on children.....but be prepared for the consequences.
Off for a cup of tea & a cold shower. Cheerio.
