Your Riots Tonight

I got a text message just before hometime yesterday to say that karate had been cancelled, presumably because of The Situation. So I went home, which was possibly my quickest commute ever - there was very little traffic on the roads.

This morning I visited the bike mechanic in Penge to have a new exhaust fitted to my scooter, and came in to work via Brixton. Lots of shops closed and shuttered; the Pay Day Loan place had its windows boarded but had made up for this by putting up balloons.

It seems as though London had a quiet night and the trouble has moved elsewhere. Sorry Bristol, Gloucester et al.
