And now for something completely different yet very topical from our England-based brother in arms:

“I can totally understand the urge to burn everything down and steal what you can. These are not a reboot of 80’s riots these are the birth pangs of a new order of ghetto no go areas of millions of economically cleansed and green zone paramilitary protected rich enclaves. The Olympics, as in China, are the medal for achieving this, absolute lockdown level security to produce a glittering mask over a maggot eaten skull of societal failure. It’s odd people think disaffection would not manifest as looting after decades of intense consumer culture and a retreat of the political process to irrelevance for most people. We are reaping what we sowed but still living in denial.”
