Shanghai New Year deaths – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-30646918 (May Allah grant their families patience).
It would seem that tragically the London authorities have been vindicated in their decision to sell tickets to the New Year fireworks yesterday. By controlling the number of people watching the fireworks in a constricted space they have preserved the safety of everyone attending.
I was one of those people rolling my eyes when I initially heard about the ticketing arrangements but I have to admit they were right about this one.
Personally unless you have somewhere warm for me to go to immediately afterwards you wouldn’t see me out there for love or money,
