Like most people in the country I’m hoping for a quieter night In Britain and an end to the rioting and looting.
I also hope the British media will stop it’s knee-jerk reaction of immediately going on a witch-hunt. Too many in the media seem intent on blaming the professionals for perceived failings rather than the people who are actually causing the misery.
We have this with social workers who are more vilified than the parents or carers who have harmed the child in their care. Now we are seeing the police blamed for operational failures while the rioters seem almost to be let off the hook.
I exaggerate of course. But let’s get civil order back in control before we resort to mud-slinging. It’s hardly the most edifying sight for our young people, nor is it a good role-model.
