Well, I've finally gone and done it. I'm now on Twitter. Yet another way to avoid writing. Fascinating people on there - particularly linking to the London riots and the clean-up that's being managed through a range of really generous and kind-hearted fellows out there. Twitter can be a good thing. My heart is warmed by their work.
I also found a great poster:
which, although I'm more a caring-sharing hug-a-tree and look-behind-the-face-at-the-real-problem kinda-girl, this got me!
I'm sure there are many out there who are incensed by the action of the police in Tottenham next week - I'm hardwired to think the police may have just pointed and pressed before waiting to see what was going on (or be shot maybe). However, most of the rioters are just greedy toe-rags looking for any excuse to steal and smash the place up. YES! We are all angry at losing our money, pensions etc, but by looting and destroying the very communities they live in, they're playing right in to the Con Dems hands. Before you know it they'll be telling us we need ID Cards and a police state.
