been checkin' out the news 'til my eyeballs fail to see
We're back in the UK and trying to make sense of the news.
Riots in London, Birmingham, Manchester and elsewhere, with what seems to be a mainly mercenary agenda.
The television is full of it like that old Zappa lyric.
Sure, there's been some comments in the interviews with sympathisers that say its because of government measures or policing, but all the footage I've seen seems to indicate its mainly about looting and destruction.
Of course, its a tiny but orchestrated minority creating the disorder with a disproportionate and heartless impact on others and on the global impression of the UK.
Not forgetting the new financial crunch.
Fortunately, the majority of people are showing community spirit whilst detesting the situation or else I think I'd need to escape back to holiday.
