I was in Paris back in April, and admittedly the first thing that came into my mind as I walked the streets was "powder keg". The army absolutely everywhere, Jews being accosted in the street with quenelles, a quite worrying amount of racial (self-)segregation.


It's a stunning place and I even love the Parisians - but it's a disordered city that seems to be permanently teetering on the edge of tragedy. It's happened twice and I can't help but feel it's going to keep on happening, and happening to God knows what detriment to Paris' future, and to France's as a whole. God knows what it's going to be like at the end of this.

The jungle refugee camp in Calais has been set on fire.


Apparently not true- no confirmed sources, lots claiming it's a hoax and the pic going round is weeks old.


Absolutely sickening night. France must be seriously struggling to comprehend why this has happened.

Fucking tabloids trying to paint these attacks as revenge for "Jihadi John." Far too coordinated and immediate for it to have been related.


Interestingly, a state of emergency in France allows the police to arbitrarily search private homes, censor the press, impose military tribunals, order house arrest without trial, close public spaces and collect private weapons. Do we have something similar in the uk?
