When governments deny their populations access to land & resources unless they cough up capital, some people end up with nothing.
People who have nothing, have nothing to lose.
So by your logic, if Rosary takes all my stuff, me beating the crap out of you with a lead pipe and setting your house on fire is completly understandable?
As I said, these rioters should have been sent to do aid work in a third world nation to see some real poverty. That includes all the upper class brats that joined in. Social change can happen in the UK. However, I will only support it if it is peaceful and sane.
I think that Westminster is (to steal a line) a hive of scum and villiany, but only because people have allowed it. The laws of the system will allow anyone to voted in. I want to smash my head against a wall because of who the people vote for, but also because more people won't vote.
Change can happen via the ballot. Riots mean greater unrest, and tighter laws.
There was no excuse or any real reason for those riots.
