LONDON’S BURNING – SURREALLY!

Iran urging the UK Government to show restraint, German News comparing us to Mogadishu, a Russian Reporter claiming there are escaped tigers from London Zoo roaming the streets, and David Cameron’s Cobra Committee meeting in a building on Horse Guard’s, overlooking the US Olympic girl’s baseball team! It’s surreal, but the World Media are clearly having a ball and a field day turning the lens on Britain. The US Economist Joseph Steilglitz was right to say that when hope goes huge resentments can build and then be unleashed, but as for the idea doing the rounds on the Cyberverse and Internet that it is like the Arab Spring, the characters involved and what they are doing does not wash for a moment. The Summer of Discontent indeed, in the Anti-Social Network.
