What do you know? We spend four delightful days chilling in the wilds of Herefordshire, listening to amazing music, meeting lovely people and having the time of our lives oblivious to the news that the country's descended into a state of anarchy. Last night, a few miles away from our leafy avenue, three young men lost their lives in a hit-and-run accident reportedly defending their Mosque. Whilst London had a welcome night of relative calm, violence continued in the West Midlands and Manchester.
West Bromwich, Wolverhampton and Birmingham were under siege for most of the evening. Despite reports to the contrary, Walsall remains relatively trouble-free although the town centre pubs closed early as a precautionary measure.
I'm planning on going out tonight regardless.
It'll take more than a bunch of lawless, sportswear-wearing thugs to stand in the way of me and a Vegetable Madras. Besides only a moron would find anything worth robbing in our derelict high street.
