Like everyone else I woke on Tuesday last week to the news that the riots which had taken place in Tottenham had spread to other parts of London. Worse was to come though as I soon learnt that not only that the rioting had spread but that it was affecting my own local neighbourhood. The original...

Same old divisions

Lets not mess about guys; this was not a race riot but a riot started by one particular race and finished by many. Black youth did not attack white or Asian but joined together in mindless facebook mayhem. Its 30 years to the day Thatcher deliberately flared it up in Britain’s disconnected black...
