Riot in London

10/08/2011
newspapers talk about the riot

On the fourth day of riot, the streets in London seemed to be from horror movie scenes. Many properties were raided, burned and looted. People began to fill up with food as if they were getting ready for a war. I had never seen or heard so many ambulance siren, police cars and fire engines, in three years of living in England.

People were suspicious and thinking about conspiracy. They predicted terrorist bomb attack in the fragile English capital. Others said that the country was bankrupt. Some believed that the former prime minister Margaret Thatcher, considered ‘the strongest man in the UK’ would have solved the mess in a day.

The media published a lot of articles and profited from the historical fact. Every day the table kitchen from my house was full of newspapers and magazines. The subject was debated by everyone and everywhere in the city.

The chaos was settle.
