The collective tutting sound of the British masses ....

If the last 72 hours is anything to go by, social media is now showing and sharing not only the controversy of the events in London (and around the UK), but also the collective disgust and tutting sounds of the British masses.

For my many friends who live around the world, we are annoyed, the trouble is, when a Brit becomes annoyed there tends to be resolve.

So, I am sure we will see some more events, and hear over egged media reports of idiots taking the opportunity to spread the action. The original issue has long evaporated and even with the underlying issues of our time, there are many who feel that this has become more of an opportunistic event rather than a political statement.

Lets face it, if you are dissatisfied with the economic climate and wish to protest, do so, but looting shops for mobile phones and flat screen TV’s does not cut it with me.

With two teenagers, one at home, still of school age the other working hard in an apprenticeship to work themselves up the career ladder. I have limited sympathy with the feckless souls engaged in this idiocy. Especially when I have had the privilege of working with students from diverse and often economically challenged backgrounds for the last fifteen years, and have seen a large number now in successful careers in the IT industry, some working in the city and other notable organizations.

So, if there is a message to my rant (tutting sound) is dear hearts, protest not, simply remove the single digit from your rear socket and do something about the situation yourself. No it is not easy, many of us are having to work harder at the moment and see our costs of living go up, whilst I am not a fan of the political class, I don’t need to set fire to my local electronics retailer to make my point heard.
