"I Say, Old Chap What's This Kerfluffle Out In the Street?"

The rather portly old gent with ruby red cheeks from a lifetime's avid support of British beef, and port wine,  asked the club steward, who was hovering anxiously near him,  both peering out of the window at massive crowds below waving banners and yelling"  "How un-British, " he said.  The steward clicked his teeth and nodded in agreement.

He could have been in his window seat in any of these places - Trafalgar Square, Downing Street, the  US Embassy, Cardiff or Manchester and similar.  All hosted (however reluctantly) civil protesters.  We know them as rioters here across The Pond.

In watching ABC-TV last night I noted several white faces and I thought, "Rodney King maybe your plea has not gone to waste.  "Can't we just get along?"

In today's media I learn that a great many of those white faces were members of ANTIFA, or Anti-Fascist.  They are known to be Far Left, Anarchists, Socialists, Communists and a soupcon of liberals and social democrats.  So much for a dream, ay, Rodney?

When I noted that the rowdies were in Beverly Hills, I thought, "Finally, dullards!  It finally dawned on you to go where the good if horrendously over-priced stuff is - Beverly Hills."  When the Beverly Hills Hotel starts boarding up as for a hurricane in Key West, and Gucci which had already done so - this is extremely serious.
