British Riots… Fascinating Perspectives
There have been some fascinating pieces written about the riots that have been afflicting the UK of late – and published by papers that you would not automatically assume would take such a stance. Thus their impact is possibly all the more powerful.
Two pieces in the Telegraph have really caught my eye. One by Mary Riddell, writing quite brilliantly on inequality: http://tgr.ph/oCFEE3. The other is written by Cristina Odone, on how “immigrants love this country more than we do”: http://tgr.ph/mVZ5r4.
Aditya Chakrabortty in the Guardian has some enlightening views: http://bit.ly/qDJ2Qm and Brendan O’Neill of Spiked does not mince words: http://bit.ly/o1oGCQ.
History will reveal whether we learn from this dark episode or not, but such perspectives are a starting point.
