Sad News

I think all British hearts will have been weeping at the news of sectarian riots in Belfast, we lived through decades of "the Troubles" and when the peace process really started to take effect it was like a weight being lifted off our collective souls.   As always there are more issues here than are being stated out loud, much of it simple old fashioned sectarianism, some of it young men with nothing better to do, no outlet for their energy and no hope of things getting better, that lot combined with to much testosterone and long sunny days is always going to be a recipe for disaster.

Yesterday 32 Police officers were injured in Belfast, meanwhile in Egypt dozens of protesters have been shot by the army, this all makes my own problems seem a little unimportant.
