Wombles clean up London after riots and looting

Posted on 28 August, 2011 by Gina, Paul | Be the First to Comment

The riots and looting in London and other cities around the UK are shocking. An out of control mob mentality without conscience profiteering from a terrible situation. However, good always triumphs over thuggery. And the famous Brit Blitz spirit has surfaced yet again, resulting in flash mobs of so-called Wombles connecting via Twitter and Facebook to clean up Clapham, Battersea and other boroughs in the capital. Paul and Gina discuss how these groups of volunteers are sending a powerful message to the thugs: no matter what you do we will clean up and help our neighbours.

Something always positive comes out of negative events, and it’s been interesting to see how social networking has played a major part in bringing these Womble clean-up mobs together for the benefit of their own communities – and communities in other parts of London.
