I Don't See Any Elephant

Two stories on BBC Radio Four. Apparently, the population of the cities is much younger than that of the countryside.

I wonder why ?

Next, a preview of today's French riots - in which Caroline Wyatt seems to have no clue as to the identity of the people expected to attack demonstrators, shopkeepers, police this evening.

I'm sceptical about your claims on the ethnicity of the French rioters - last week's political riots are not the same as the ghetto riots a couple of months ago.

This time, the demo was mostly ethnically French students 1968-style (not least the grandson of the former foreign minister, arrested for chucking paving stones at the CRS -http://bellaciao.org/fr/article.php3?id_article=26066 )
