A tale of one city

Hola. Hope you are well.

I read recently that London has more billionaires than any other city.

I also read that in some parts of London studs/spikes have been erected to prevent homeless people from sleeping in these places. In the same article it said over 6400 people slept rough in London last year. How can these two things occur in the same city?

Also in London, our Mayor, Boris, announced that he’s bought 3 water cannons. Is he expecting trouble?

Surely the money would have been better used to find out why people would want to riot and address those issues. Or perhaps, instead of investing in water cannons the Mayor could have invested in some of the services that were removed in the name of austerity.

Maybe I’m wrong and the  water cannons weren’t bought as a means to controlling angry mobs but will be used to blast the homeless out of London. I really shouldn’t give people ideas.

Til next time, stay safe!
