I don't know what to say about the past week of riots and looting but, like the rest of the nation, I'm a bit knackered by it all. There's a great deal to be said about it beyond lynch mobs and posturing, not least on the vital, fundamental importance now of empathy. Empathy for everyone, including David Starkey and for the young people who have been yelling about their situation for some time.
But since this is a blog about class and income in relation to counselling I'd like to share two things with you.
The first is a blog from the LSE which demonstrates how cuts and social unrest are intimately linked.
The second is the only response I can find after a long search for counsellors thoughts on the subject.
