The morning after …

These past two days in Birmingham have been very subdued.

The nights, obviously, have made global headlines what with rioting, looting and violence breaking out in pockets across the city … but the days that follow them are odd.

There’s a quiet air of wariness about the place, people are very aware that they’ll probably be locking up again at 2pm and heading home -resigned to the fact that for the sake of safety the violent minority have won for another night.

 

It’s nothing on what’s been happening in London but it’s still needless, distressing and really shouldn’t be a part of life in the 21st Century.
