It is the largest and biggest street carnival in Europe and it holds annually in London- the Notting Hill Carnival is what it is called.
Dancers dressed in colourful plumage and bejewelled bikinis made their way through the streets of west London today as hundreds of thousands of people watched the annual festivities. It is estimated that the event is attended by a million people in a single day.
The carnival which is in its 48th year and expected to come to a climax today after two days of non-stop excitement and beautiful display of different cultures and traditions, saw the addition of 2,000 police officers drafted in yesterday to bring the total on duty at the carnival to 7,000.
My question is, if this were to be, say the Calabar Street Carnival, and (wo)men of the Nigerian Police are caught on camera in this sort of poses, what do you think will happen to them? What will you say?
