I live and work in London, right by Enfield and my home town is Manchester. Instead of leaving at half four tomorrow and getting back to Manchester at half nine on the coach my mum is driving down to London to get me as we are both worried about the journey I would have had to do into London to get the coach then the journey into Manchester as the coach station is right by where the rioters have been. The gate to the house driveway has been padlocked since Monday and everyone is on tenterhooks because although we are more or less out of the loop there is a petrol station very close to us that is just by the Tube line as well and they have been shutting early with weighted trolleys across the entrances. Yesterday and the day before smoke from the Sony Distribution Centre was on the skyline all day. These people are idiots, who loots Lidls, Quality Save and Oxfam??!! These people are so blind to the future when they want to buy food and other items and are going to find it's all more expensive because of the riot costs. Small businesses will go under, people will be laid off and the housing market will be shot again. It's stupid.
