Tinderbox

I’m sorry, but the reporting and commentary on the BBC news this evening was shocking.

Knowing nothing about the identity of the attackers, we learn that France must ask itself whether it has got its approach to immigration right. Now rolling commentary on communal tensions.

But who’s to say the perpetrators aren’t natives, self radicalised by watching videos on the internet, like Maxime Hauchard, Mickael dos Santos or Raphael Amar?

Can all those words, broadcast to millions over the airways be taken back? Can the rolling commentary be undone?

What a vast amount of timber can be set ablaze by the tiniest spark.
