Darcus Howe, well-respected West Indian-born intellectual, New Statesman columnist, TV host and political activist, is interviewed on the BBC about last night’s rioting and he eloquently states what a lot of people in the country must be thinking right about now.
“I don’t call it rioting. I call it an insurrection of the masses of the people. It is happening in Syria, it is happening in Clapham, it is happening in Liverpool, it is happening in Port of Spain, Trinidad.”
Instead of listening, the BBC newsreader keeps interrupting him with nonsense until, in the end, he just goes off on her in the most hilarious way. This clip needs to be passed around, please tweet and share.
