London Love

As most of you know, I go to university in London, so it's a second home for me. I can't find the right words to sum up how upset and angry I am at the actions of some people in the capital over the past three days. No matter what social and political problems and ill-feeling lies at the root of the riots, it is no excuse for the reckless endangerment of other people's lives and livelihoods. For the most part these riots were pure criminality, thuggery and greed, and nothing else, particularly as violence spread to other parts of the country, especially Birmingham. There is nothing to be gained from destroying your own communities.
To my readers in the rest of the world, please do not judge London and the UK on the actions of these idiots. Our capital is an amazing, vibrant, friendly city so do not stay away. To my readers in London and other parts of the UK affected by rioting, above all stay safe, help clean up your area if you can, and if you have any information regarding individuals involved in the vandalism, looting and arson, tell the police immediately.

I spent an amazing few days in London last week, doing the "tourist thing" with some friends from my Erasmus study year. I thought I'd post them, to show what London is really about!

  9. Thank you for this post. I live in London, born and brought up here, and London is my love. There are some people hell-bent on making a bad situation worse, but what they fail to realise is that their actions will bring no gain. London is a wonderful city that takes you in no matter where you're from or what you do. These riots aren't a reflection of London at all -this post is wonderful :)

  10. I am starving with empty cupboards and that oreo cake has sent my stomache a'rumblin!

    Regarding the riots I'm appaled, and I can't beleive how it's spreading across the country. Did you see the picture in the paper today of that boy who had his clothes stolen off his back? Gross behaviour.
