The rioting in Paris has now spread into other cities around France, including Rouen which is the city closest to Delphine and her family and the one I have spent the most time in outside of Paris itself. I'm not surprised that the unrest has kicked off as the French suburbs have been a powderkeg waiting to go off for many years, but I hope it manages to get resolved without any deaths or too many injuries.

The thing is though if thigs go to far out of control it might kick off in the UK.

I doubt it. The particulars involved in this rioting is very much a French problem and situation. There would be no link between any UK rioting and French rioting apart from the fact if a few troublemakers over here decide to kick off just to cause trouble. Certainly they'd be little sympathies between the two.

I don't think we'll be seeing a 'Europa Aflame' scenario taking place around any immediate corners. Not yet anyway :p

I knwo ther are extreamist groups about in europe, that would love the change to causetrouble in the name of somehting. However the chances of them useing this as an excuse are low.
