They are obviously expecting something in town but when i was there i only saw people starting to gather. It was a friend in ribbleton that told me they had seen trouble starting. Like was said above, pretty standard for Preston

1844: Derrick Campbell, trapped between youths and police in Birmingham, goes on to say: "They've just attacked one of the Sky vehicles with sticks and missiles. The police are keeping them at bay, they've blocked the road off... I must admit that I am a little bit nervous, I'm not sure how I'm going to get home."

English ? NEVER

That's Sam, the snack snatching seagull of Aberdeen.

Which begs the question ... why aren't the Scots & Welsh rioting ?

Ultimately it's the fault of the guy who first shouted "HEY... LET'S TRASH THAT SHOP OVER THERE NOW THE COPPERS AINT HERE!!"


Well i would have to disagree with you on that because you would also have to look into the reasons why the guy would consider shouting that...If it was a simple as that then this looting/rioting would be a daily occurrence. You have to ask yourself why now?


Nothing to do with protests and i hope the british govt will be able to resolve this soon.


Im curious why you say that this is nothing to do with protests, yes they are committing criminal acts but why cant a criminal act be considered a form of protest.

So it's spreading from anger towards cops to anger towards anyone?

Hmm... seems to me they forgot why they are rioting in the first place.. it's not like the shopowner killed the guy..




The trashing of public property started within 10 minutes after the first agression towards cops, and it was only a few hours later that all hell broke loose.

I'm NOT gonna have myself talked into believing that most of the people on the streets "protesting" even have a clue what they're "protesting" about.

Theyre not all bad then.


My mum just arrived in the country today and she was talking to the coach driver who went through clapham last night. 200 chavs were approaching on the road and he just floored it and he told her he wasnt stopping for any reason, even if he ran them over.

2 thumbs up to him.

It means doing a bit of graft!
but seriously, why would they? Neither really have the same problems as England. Wales has Cardiff and Scotland has Glasgow and the rest of the areas are fine and people generally are good natured even if they are broke! We have every city on the map and every city is generally filled with angry twats and 500 languages!

why are the media releasing the news about the IPCC findings. It's almost like they want to stoke the fires.

This is why: www.bbc.co.uk...

Some do, they say they are attacking rich people. This is absolute bull# and their reasoning is based on ignorance. They assume anyone with a business is rich! I can guarantee their actions have destroyed small businesses that struggled to get by. Their actions have hurt many people, who are probably worse off than they are. If there was any degree of morality behind this they would be taking on the real reason this country is in the mess it is, like the government, and the bankers, and the CEO's of multinationals, not independent flower shops or charity shops.

Yeah its pretty stupid, in the inner city slums they wont think

"well he had a loaded modified gun on him that in all fairness he probably pulled which prompted the copper to shoot him and even if not, he had a loaded gun on the streets of London"

No, their response will be..

"Nah mate, proper pig white man merk their mums init burn the place proper shot my brother yo ya errrbody get tipsy merk merk, na what I mean !!!!!!!1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 who got da green biatch"

So really the media should think, but the place burning to the ground gives the media something to talk about for the rest of the year!
