I reforwarded an email I had received from ONE yesterday about a gathering with questions and answers - and I thought that you would be the right person to put questions etc. Did you see it? It was sent yesterday, but I have not heard from you.
Go to the RIOT in LONDON thread. Troops and water canons have been suggested as means of stopping the rioting and looting. But the troops are in Libya and Afghanistan and the water canons in the Belfast area. And all the policemen are stationed in London tonight, when they are needed in Manchester. I could have told them that. I felt that night one: Birmingham - then they moved to London and violence spread to Bristol, Liverpool and a bit Manchester so logical that rioting would continue in Manchester while the government showed action by ordering 10,000 additional policemen - in London!! Read the last couple of pages in the London thread to follow what has happened. Rudy's college-mate's friend got bruised / bloody and robbed in London. And some know someone whose mother is inside a house with looters outside in the area. Scary stuff indeed.
How are you? I understand that the riots in England has spread to Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester. Very sad indeed - the rioters are destroying the shops in their own neighbourhood causing unemployment to even more people. Madness.
Thanks for your email. I hope that the lightning will not be dangerous.
I have not posted a few more lines (rather than articles) in the thread about the drought in East Africa, and I read your response to earlier articles.
I do not see Ethiopia as Christian, but a spokesman seems to imply that it is together with Kenya - I understand Kenya.
I see that you are online so I guess that you read my posts in the relevant threads then.
I have had a nice day. I invited neighbour Elsebeth to shrimps on toast bread, then fish, new potatoes from Ingrid's allotment garden + hollandaise sauce and then a pudding - all that accompanied by lovely White wine.
Wrote application for a job where I could use my languages (German in particular plus English).
So good day. Rainy day, but cleared up so nice weather now - even saw glimpses of the sun.
Okay - it was the same setlist as at Glastonbury. Guy is from Scotland - so he felt at home and was interviewed. He said that instead of Shiver they would play Cemeteries of London. But they ended up playing Shiver which is a favourite among the Coldplay fans - and Guy already had the support of his family and friends as he was "at home".
