London Burning

“In the charismatic and brilliantly filmed movie V for Vendetta, there is a build up of rebellion against a stern British Government. The people – V– take their understandable emotions out on the British Parliament, sending Big Ben’s clock face raining down into the Thames with a cascade of glass and golden brick. Heart wrenching as it is, there is a moment of calm understanding. There is a tear shed for the history and the symbol that defined London universally, but still the slow, sad nod of understanding.
 
Not here.

Not in reality – far from fiction or cinema.”
