Thus Kenneth Tynan on the original production of 'Look Back In Anger'.
There's a gap in the market for a blog which just reports UK homicides. They run at about 1,100 a year - 3.3 a day - for the whole UK. Not an unreportable number. Yet they're not all reported. Why ?
I don't understand how the BBC find room on the Web for this :
A man was taken to hospital after being struck by a bus in Bristol, it has emerged. The pedestrian was hit on Hotwells Road in the city centre at about 2200 BST on Saturday.
The man, aged 21, suffered minor head injuries.
Yet not this :
A murder hunt is under way after a builder beaten up in a busy Hoxton park lost his fight for life. James Houliston, 44, of Regan Way, was left with a fractured skill when he was attacked in Shoreditch Park three weeks ago. His life support machine was turned off at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel last Thursday.
Police have launched a murder inquiry and have made an urgent appeal for witnesses to come forward. "I believe the man who assaulted Mr Houliston is a local man and is likely to have been a regular visitor to the park," said Det Chief Insp Carl Mehta, who is leading the investigation.
Mr Houliston, a builder with two grown-up sons, was walking through the park at about 7.30pm on Tuesday, June 12. He was near the Mintern Street entrance when he became involved in an argument with another person. Mr Houliston was punched in the face and fell to the ground, crashing his head on the pavement. He was taken to the hospital in a serious condition and never regained consciousness. A postmortem carried out at Poplar mortuary on Friday found he died of head injuries.
Police are keen to trace a dark-skinned Asian man in his late teens, who is about 5ft 11ins tall and has an athletic build. He was wearing light-coloured shorts and was wearing or holding a white T-shirt. It is believed he was with a group of about six Asian and black youths in their late teens, as well as a white girl with blonde or bleached hair. The incident room can be contacted on 020 8345 3734, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
It can't just be racism, can it ?
