we have had

a fair amount of that nonsense here in Oakland alas. So sorry to see this happening to the folks in London. I remember helpful folks giving me directions when I got lost in that neighborhood 40 years ago.

Angus just posted this "Seems like parts of London are going in to lockdown. Had a couple of friends contact me now saying they've been advised to close shop and go home :("

How very sad and scary!

On that one I agree 1,000%! I think that looting and vandalizing undermine the purpose of a demonstration, which is what it seems like happened in this case.

looting

On a serious note what has the looting and burning of shops got to do with the original incident. Must be getting old but don't see how this type of behaviour helps anyone and only affects the very community that you live in.

Like that classic Frankie joke about a guy who asks for a lager and lime in a pub in Bathgate.

I heard that too......

Although unfortunately they couldn't understand the concept of deep fried mars bars! However the rations of Irn Bru made it safely through but is being held by the Soda Barons who are demanding a "tax " to let it be distributed to the populace.
A spokesman for the intended recipients was quoted as saying "Haw whit's the problem Big Man?"

How many times did i tell you NOT to enlarge that catflap? Am i talking to myself here?
Christ, riggsjr, i'm reaching my boiling point; okay okay, the heroin will have to suffice.

By the way, is it true that the people in Ethiopia recently held a concert to raise money for the citizens of Glasgow?......

I accept graciously

jonapi
I accept your invite to be "Chief Jobbie Weecha" of the Clan Dead. Although I do not feel worthy of the honour after my recent misdemeanours I will attempt to carry out my duties with the utmost humility and grace. Now where did I put those 'doggie bags'?
p.s. Sorry the Haggis escaped at the weekend and we are presently searching the local moors looking for a replacement.
