I used to work at the Express & Star in Wolverhampton (before the recession cost me my job there - maybe I should be rioting?) and some of my old colleagues linked me to a video on YouTube, taken from one of the upper floors of the building yesterday afternoon. |
Unsurprisingly, these rioters - obviously motivated by a deeply-held political belief about being disenfranchised by the government, because they all seem to be intelligent - were targeting a jewellery store and a mobile phone specialist on Queen Street. For political reasons, of course.
No sign of riots spreading to my own town of Telford yet, but shops are being cautious and closing up early. I reckon the people here are too stoned / drunk to riot though.
