Darcus Howe is a veteran West Indian writer and broadcaster who was interviewed live on the BBC yesterday about the riots. He was interrupted and spoken over by the interviewer who tried to imply that he was involved in the riots and then cut him off abruptly when he gave as good as he got.
Link to the interview below. Well worth a look.
