    Always the way, isn't it?

    Though to be fair, I did see another article where the BLM movement have tried very hard to distance themselves from the violence and have stated that they will carefully monitor further protests and assist the authorities in tracking down any troublemakers.

    Sadly, I think they're too late and the damage is done.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    A lot of it just seem to be down to your typical rent-a-mob, but I wonder how much if the trouble is down to people venting frustration at being quarantined for weeks on end.

    I suspect you have a very valid point, Lex.

    I just hope that when the pubs re-open we don't see repeats of this type of thing. Recent events in Coventry don't give me much hope.

    Yes, there might be a lot of binge-drinking related trouble on the 1st couple of days after the pubs open.

    If they open on the 4th, it's a Saturday. I suspect we'll see some fun.

    I'll not drop in until Monday or Tuesday and it'll be afternoon. Hopefully, the usual muppets will have gotten things out of their system by then.

    I've been thinking along the same lines - they'll all be rammed on the 1st day.

    You can be stuck in a cycle of poverty, no matter what your ethnicity is: https://www.spiked-online.com/2021/0...ite-privilege/

    Many of us have known this for a long time. But, it's like many things in our so called world of free speech: you can say what you want, as long as you don't go against the official agenda. Once you do that, you are an 'ist' of some derogatory sort.

    I'm sure the Guardianistas will have something to say about my last post!
