These scum are well out of control,and i for one will applaud the police when they start cracking a few skulls!
I personally would like to see these rodents rounded up,put on a big ship,towed into the middle of the Channel and torpedoed!!

A bit extreme i know,but oh well,thats just me!

And now, the police are just standing by letting this all happen.

As a result the public are BEGGING for the police to use TOUGHER and more BRUTAL tactics, and even draft in the army.

TPTB know that they cannot enforce these brutal tactics for no reason, so they wait for the perfect time, wait until the public demand it.

They are covering there backs for when the brutality roles out, and what can you do about it? Nothing, it would be you who voted it in.


Well it does seem odd that the World can shut down for the G8 to meet, but to protect your streets otherwise seems mighty impossible.

I utterly agree, something isn't right.

Now, get the riots stopped, and start asking some tough questions. Like, how is it that they can secure half a freaking nation, and stop an international protest for the meeting of World leaders, but to protect your neighbourhood they can't seem to scrap together a serious response?

Tough questions are needed. Something stinks in Rome. But in the meantime, get your children under control.

[re: plastic bullets]


It may already be too late. If they'd done that from the off it might have prevented the momentum from gaining.

As it is it could just fuel the angry mobs' determination to 'fight back'. Especially if rioters get seriously hurt...

I wonder how this will play out.


That could be expected if you keep ransacking your own communities.

Sneakers don't cost $200 and most these $350 phones are given free on contract



Phones are never given free on a contract. Let me explain it to you.

If I already own a phone and want a sim only contract I can get 300 minutes for 15 Euros. If I want unlimited internet on that phone I can pay a further 8 euros a month. 23 Euro's all in per month.

If I want an iPhone 4 on a 2 year contract I can get it with 300 minutes, and unlimited internet for 45 Euro's per month. That's 22 Euro's a month extra which is in essence, paying for the telephone in installments.

In total, I'm paying 528 Euro's for the phone.

These so called vigilantes are just idiots in my opinion. Trying to be tough men and stop the rioting. It will only make the situation worse. It will just cause anarchy!

Anyone have any alternative feeds or radio feeds or anything localised in specific areas?

I'm finding sky and bbc to be quite repetitive now and no real updates of the smaller situations in other cities.

Thanks, Einstein. The point being you don't pay much up front so they're within reach of poor people.

Of course you knew that, didn't you.

Looks like Dave Cameron's getting his 'Big Society' after all. For those outside the UK Cameron's Big Society plan is to 'get the people involved'. By this he means fire all the people who work in libraries, social centers, kids groups, etc. and get members of the UK public to do the job free instead; regardless of if they are qualified. This is an example of the social cuts I've previously mentioned; the direct result of paying for the UK bank bailouts.

Vigilantes better not do tooo good a job or the will get the job permanently, unpaid and uninsured of course!

I agree and disagree - Of course it would be best left to the police but also if your area was being destroyed and you saw the police stand by and do nothing - how much would you take?
Tricky situation indeed

This was my theory I was talking with a friend about earlier.

All the EDL and BNP need to do is get out on the streets and start fighting and tackling the rioters... people may not applaud their beliefs but would applaud their actions in stepping up and defending the people.


This would be very sad and very dangerous IMO.

I really hope it's just some guys who are concerned.

Not the EDL/BNP scum

People upload to Youtube, facebook, and other such social medium from where they are.

If you start monitoring, you'll find lots of these go up. Some are from people caught in the mess, and others are from people who think they are super cool. Few of them are from the media.

There's no need to get snarky with me. You said the phones were free, I pointed out that they are not. There's no need to take offence. Some people simply don't realise that they are infact, paying pretty much the full price for the phone. You were one of those people, but I've corrected that.

You don't need to thank me.
