    I find it interesting that we have not seen the families of those young girls torn to shreds, literally, in Manchester on the telly being interviewed. I wonder why that is?

    One percent reacted to Shaneyson in Explosion at Southgate   
    Sadiq Khan is in touch with the Met about this "minor explosion". Thank goodness it is only one of those "minor" bombs. It was less major and a lot more "minor" explosive device. SO please dont panic because this is just a "minor" bomb.

    it was an 'explosion' and there were 'people running'.  I wonder why they think it needs the quotation marks -- they have a story, the sources indicate explosion and running.  They don't do this sort of 'quoting' for the majority of stories -- eg, there's been a 'car accident' and people have been seen 'driving away', but it is okay because it was only 'a small car'.
    Anyway, the person being carried out on a stretcher certainly wasn't 'running'.
    I also find it amazing the way they placate people with a it was only a 'minor explosion' -- it is my understanding that that [in the event of terrorist attack] means that the main charge failed to detonate (properly).

    One percent got a reaction from UmBongo in Mevagissey fights back against incomers   
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5853849/Cornish-locals-vote-BAN-second-home-owners-buying-new-houses.html
    Locals who have been priced out of their pretty fishing village have voted to ban second-home owners from buying new builds in a landslide victory.
    Mevagissey, in Cornwall, has seen a boom in the number of houses being purchased as holiday homes over recent years.
    The average house now costs almost £300,000, which is 20 times the local salary, forcing locals to move elsewhere if they want to get on the property ladder.
    To clamp down, residents in the tourist hotspot held a referendum to block the sale of new builds to second-home owners - with 90 per cent in favour.

    A close friend was a Junior Prosecuting Counsel in the trial of the Bradford Riots 2001.  This was the last time non lenient prison sentences were handed out.  They were all appealed.  His abiding memory was during sentencing the Judge asked a defendant how many previous convictions he had.  Spontaneous answer,  “ in what name” !

    Have you taken a wander down the high street recently?    it might be ‘gentrified ‘ round the ‘village’ but not much anywhere else.
