and because my bloody phone broke I haven't got his number to call him to make sure he is ok, my mum is in south of france so can't get it from her....

It's on the internet apparently TLE, don't know where exactly.

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:16:35

tottenham high road I know exactly where it is....hence my worry.

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:16:52

I am watching it on Sky News now

squeakytoy Sat 06-Aug-11 23:17:09

so long as he stays indoors, he wont get caught up in it..

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:17:24

2 police cars, a london bus, a shop all on fire sad

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:17:54

Squeaky I will still worry he is in his 60's

What squeaky said. Decent folk will stay well clear.

Does he have a landline? If so try directory enquiries or

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:20:06

DBF, he will stay clear but he is too close for my liking. No landline silly bugger refused one so we got him a mobile which I have lost the number of.

He'll be fine TLE as long as he doesn't go out. Honestly, what's going on is very contained in a very small area.

Prosch Sat 06-Aug-11 23:22:03

Look! Another TheLadyEventstar thread with drama

What a surprise

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:22:41

Val its so reminiscent of the broadwater farm riots. My grandparents were alive then and very close to the area....

Arghhh silly duffer wish he'd had had a house phone./

squeakytoy Sat 06-Aug-11 23:22:59

sky just showing the looters running along the road with shopping trolleys full of stolen good...

disgraceful scum behaviour.. sad

LadyThumb Sat 06-Aug-11 23:25:18

I hope he's alright TheLady - it looks awful.

Fuck off Prosch !

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:25:45

Squeaky, it is. this is because of A preplanned operation to stop a mini cab which had a man in they wanted to detained, policeman was shot - bullet went into his radio and lodged there and the 29yr old man was shot dead by police.

LadyThumb Sat 06-Aug-11 23:28:32

You carry a gun or knife and you get what's coming to you.

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:28:36

Prosch oh yes because I started the riots from my living room in south london didn't i?

Lady, I know he won't go out but he is an old man so I worry - he still thinks he is 21 wink

squeakytoy Sat 06-Aug-11 23:28:47

I know TLE. It shows the mentality of people, when they are out rioting because a convicted gangster has been shot dead. sad

Woodlands Sat 06-Aug-11 23:29:18

Scary stuff. I drove along the road where the shooting happened on Thursday about 5-10 minutes before it happened.

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:29:33

Lady, don't know the ins and outs of it just what is on the news apparently at 10.30 there was a crowd of 200- 400 rioters.

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:30:39

Wood, thank god you weren't caught up in it!!

Squeaky, Its ridiculous their mentality is well what can I say?

LadyThumb Sat 06-Aug-11 23:31:18

I just think they are all anti-police. It's all beyond me, I'm afraid, the attitudes of a lot of people these days.

TheLadyEvenstar Sat 06-Aug-11 23:32:34

there are kids as young as EIGHT years old with their hoods up within the rioters and looters and there are more rioters on their way sad according to the news reporters
