London was on fire! Oh my! What is happening?
|Tottenham Court Road|
Personally, it is one of the safest city that I have ever been. I feel safe whenever I went out at night, even alone. But now with #Londonriots actions, it will become a nightmare for London peeps.

The world has been alarmed of the London chaos that occurred across England starting from last week (6th August 2011). London was really in a completely mess where people are afraid to go out and police are everywhere in the city. It started due to a protest as a result of police dead shooting to Mark Duggan in Tottenham 2 days before. More than 1000 people were arrested over the few days of rioting. Many shops, buildings and cars were burned down with shops being looted in the chaos.

Personally, I disagree with the
#Londonriots actions. I understand that they are mad with the government and what so ever, but to me, burning down the shops & stealing is not the way to show the "madness". I feel sorry for those innocent people who has been victims due to these low-minded people thinking. One of the victim, is a Malaysian boy who study in Kaplan College, London. Pls view the video, if u want to know more.
I miss the Peaceful city of London. FULLSTOP.
|I LOVE LONDON. SAVE THE PLACE.|
P/S: With things happening right now, we could not say that London is not safe. Its just 1% of its citizens behave violently. There are still many British people who CARES.
