100 !!!

This is my hundredth post. And I hit over 18 000 views since I started. Thank you, dear Cosmonauts, thank you so much.
Because of what's happening in London I decided to post Morrissey's Song " Irish Blood English Heart". The reasons of the riots are not as simple as it seems. They are a result of a neglected politics. Here are some articles and videos which help to understand what happened and why. ( Thanx to C. )

Irish Heart, English Blood

Irish blood, English heart
This I'm made of
There is no one on earth I'm afraid of
And no regime can buy or sell me

I've been dreaming of a time when
to be English is not to be baneful
to be standing by the flag, not feeling shameful
racist or partial

Irish blood, English heart
this I'm made of
There is no one on earth I'm afraid of
And I will die with both of my hands untied

I've been dreaming of a time when
the English are sick to death
of Labour, and Tories
and spit upon the name Oliver Cromwell
and denounce this royal line that still salute him
and will salute him
Forever...

Even Morrissey concentrates upon the ancient conflict between Ireland and England, I can see parallels to what's happening now and that many English people, no matter if immigrants or natives or second/third generation migrants feel ashamed and angry what's going wrong in England. The differences between poor and rich become slowly insurmountable.
Here's a link to the official video of the song: http://www.myvideo.de/watch/3198275/Morrissey_Irish_Blood_English_Heart

Let's hope this night stays quiet and calm in London.
