Above are 4 pictures found on showing various scenes from riots. The world has been gripped by the continuing race riots that have been spreading across France as cars,schools and various buildings are apparently set alight. It seems that all this "Unrest has gripped areas with large African and Arab communities since the deaths in the run-down Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois of two youths, who were accidentally electrocuted at an electricity sub-station." according to the BBC website.

Yet picture 1is not from the French riots, it is Bradford, England in the 2001 riots and picture 4 showed fire fighters at the Brixton, London in the 1982. Scenes like that seen in France over the past few days will be seen here in England. Maybe not this week or next but in the coming months tension will rise and something will ignite a riot.

I'm not a negative person - I'm a realist and instead of brushing it under the carpet and ignoring it, I believe we have serious problems here in England. Our multicultural society has many benefits and proud achievements but at the same time it is a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. Immigration continues to grow at 2-3% each year, fueling peoples concerns. So while political correctness and the "niceness" of everyday people prevails at the moment , it is only a matter of time before riots take place here.

OK , rant over.............. Now back to normal Blog life (*sweeps concerns back under the carpet)
