It was August in 2011 when riots broke out in the UK. They started in London and then spread to provincial cities including Wolverhampton. I was sitting in a garden outside a working men's club when someone asked for an explanation of what had gone wrong. I had been following the situation closely right from the inception and I gave my views and explanations of what had gone wrong, and how it could be solved in the long run. I never could see any short term solutions. When I had finished, everyone agreed with me; with the proviso that "they would never take notice of what I had to say". It is not very often that people will agree with everything I say. The next morning I got up early as usual and started to write this book. I was not put off by "never take any notice"; if it needed to be written down I would write it. Although it would upset many, I knew that it reflected what normal working class people had to say.I estimated that it would take me a year, and it was exactly two years before I had a first draft. By now of course I have included many other topics which were not concerned with the riots, and the number of people who disagree with what I have to say will have increased. But the aim of this book is make people think about alternatives to society's taboos whatever they may be.
