"Bang! Bang! You're dead!"
While I was posting yesterdays scribblings,in a strange synchronicity the police had surrounded Raoul Moat, and after a six hour stand off he killed himself. Bringing the whole sorry saga to its inevitable conclusion, live and direct on SkyTV. Meanwhile hundreds of miles away in London there were five shootings, it’s commonplace in the capital, but there are no airforce jets overhead or armoured vehicles on the streets hunting down the culprits, just gangs armed with guns and knives declaring war on each other. Someone else will probably be shot or stabbed tonight.
