Watching the news I am saddened by the turmoil in London. I have so many words, and at the same time, no words at all.
The number of people who’s livelihoods have been destroyed, property that has been destroyed, homes destroyed, costing millions of pounds.
People are using the shooting of Mark Duggan as an excuse to cause trouble, make crime and steal, and they should be ashamed of themselves.
Tottenham, Peckham, Hackney, Lewisham (less than 2 miles from my parents), Catford, Croydon, all across London there are scenes of burning buildings and cars and riot police. It’s moved on to Birmingham and rumoured to be kicking off in Leeds.
The emergency services are stretched far and thin. It’s time to call the Armed Forces in.
London is a war zone and it breaks my heart.
Massive massive thanks to ALL of the emergency services for their hard work over the last 3 days.
