Riot of the day (Woolwich edition)
As is my custom on these occasions I popped into the Great Harry for a bottle or three of Poland's finest lager before making my way home.
I guess I won't be doing that for a while.
Remember, Woolwich wasn't even the worst hit last night, considering the events in Croydon, Battersea et al.
Given the riot in the occupied territories of SE18 last night, and in particular the destruction of your favourite watering hole in Wellington St, the police response today, in shutting down large swathes of SE London, rather brings to mind images of bolting horses & stable doors.
