    I’m having a glass of low-priced red wine. What would you like?

    I'm doing the same. I made a cottage pie, with supermarket merlot, so having a glass of that! It's quite alright for £3.69 a bottle!

    They do have a cause. They're organising a riot in London, planned to be held next year, called Gammons matter.

    Firstly, it is not a counter, it is a truism.

    Secondly, this is not America.

    A van was deliberately driven into pedestrians on London Bridge before crashing on the south bank of the River Thames.

    The terrorists then attempted to stab as many people as possible.

    48 innocent people were injured, 21 of them critically - including police officers.

    Police officers risked their own lives in order to save the lives of complete strangers, from all backgrounds. They ran towards a danger that most people ran away from.

    Today, three years later, crowds of people in London are shouting ‘f**k the police’ in the faces of the same officers who undoubtedly saved peoples lives on that day.

    Bottles are being thrown at the same officers who responded to help Londoners who faced the threat of not just this terrorist incident, but many others.

    What have these brave police officers done in the last three years to warrant such abuse?

    What have these officers done in the last three years, in the context of London Bridge and this 3rd anniversary, that makes you hate them so much?

    That guy in America getting killed is a shitty thing to happen. But none of this rioting would be happening if it weren't for people being 'caged' for the last 3 months due to covid. People are bored, throw in a bit of anger and an excuse to go outside and mingle with other people and you get what we've seen over the last few days.

    Oh it would. It happened in London when another criminal was shot dead.........again, the colour of the person was the only focus from people who couldn't accept it wasn't just a killing of an innocent co-operating person.
