London (in fact the UK as a whole) took something of a global shoeing over the riots. And rightly so. it wasn't our finest hour.
But when the streets aren't awash with hooded jerks setting fire to people's livelihoods, Britain's not a bad place. And the cops can be a decent bunch.
Take this bopping bobby, for example, who felt the Notting Hill Carnival beat so badly he just had to fling out some moves. More of this please The Met. Bravo.
