Well said - unfortunately - Phil. This on the other hand is the quality side of British life. A really beautiful image and extremely well presented. Lou

A beautiful well detailed and superbly captured shot.
I have to agree, suffice to say I wouldn't be surprized if most of them are immigrants, and I'm not at all racist, it's just a fact. Off the soapbox now.

No, we feel for you, don't be ashamed - nobody chooses a nation at birth. Be proud of your country's achievements, proud of all the great places and wildlife you see here on the forum.
We had riots in Amsterdam many years ago, riots in France and ended up getting Sarkozy because he pretended to know a solution. those who riot don'y know how lucky they are, they should watch the news till the riots have been covered, it is the people of somalia who are desperate. These bored and drugged youths are just a short lived nightmare, it is the aftermath that will hurt you all most.
with all my sympathy and what a great photo
