Oh wow, this is serious. I hope it doesn't go as bad as the Vancouver riots in Canada.

Its not just london - Manchester, birmingham, liverpool, bristol - it's moving further down south too - riot police on high alert - the squads starting moving into southampton city center this afternoon, tightening control on the docks

The whole Country is going up in smoke and the police have their hands tied by the very laws they are trying to enforce. I doubt that the rioters even know WHY they started, just using the shooting as an excuse and a catalyst.

And what of our government? They've only JUST left their holidays and are calling parliament on THURSDAY! by then the riots will be at 6 days in - Far too long!

I hope that ALL our members across the country, but particularly those in London are safe. Keep indoors guys - stay safe!!!!!

It's getting way out of hand.
Not much to say.

Well, I'm all prepared. I don't know about you, but when Johnny Rioter comes a'knocking, I'll give the blighter what for with my cricket bat. That'll show him. All those mobile telephone shops smashed and looted, televisions carried off down the street in a shopping trolley, yet all those lovely old book stores are untouched, by both idle hand and flame.

If only these ruddy rioters would sit down and read a Biggles book or two. That'll set them straight.

I doubt that most of the looters could even read the word "bookstore" let alone have the brains to loot them - I mean, if you were looking to set fire to something - wouldn't books make the perfect fuel?! =\

Mind you, I'm glad that they've not touched the book stores, at least there's still going to be something left for us intelligent species rather than sitting in front of the big black box all day aimlessly staring at Jeremy Kyle :facepalm:
