2 things to be aware of.

This is not yet actually called a "riot" by the gov or police but "civil disobediances.

The reason as we can see many riots over many days.

If its a riot any losses suffered (peoples belongings, properties etc) from it which are uninsured, Has to be covered and paid for by the Council/government.

So "Riot" police are being used for a little bit of civil disobedience.

No riots = no compensation to the innocent, whilst as I speak police under attack with riot police having running battles in at least 3 separate areas of London.

Also SKY news at 17.54 ticker stating MET police admitting using "Rookie" under trained Riot police.

Were all ok because Boris Johnson is flying back home!

Maybe he will throw jam sandwiches or teddy bears at them.

Kind Regards,

Elf


Thank goodness for Boris, but where's Dave? Oh yeah living it up in Italy. What happened to his holidays in Cornwall? One year as PM and Cornwall is no longer good enough for him!! Or did he know something might kick off?

Oh it's okay Clegg is commenting now on Sky.

WAKE UP YOU OLD HAG!! these "youths" dont have a future because of our greedy government that couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery, thats "criminals" dont have anything to lose, government is cutting everything from education to jobs.... what is there to like about this world anymore? everything is going down the drain.


I'm sick of the 'poor me' attitude.

Maybe if they stayed in school, went to college and worked up a career ladder maybe they'd be in a different situation.


Maybe some of them would, be the majority wouldn't.

That's how Capitalism works. Out of 10 people you'll get one guy making alot, 2-3 making a decent amount, and the rest living in poverty.

If you got 10 people all equally intelligent, equally hard working and the same in every single way, only a select few would do well for themselves while the rest wouldn't.

So to pretend this has nothing to do with government isn't exactly right. There's a middle ground here, even if the rioters are just thugs

There is a difference between a protest and a riot.

In a riot the goals are very different.

Agree with you completely .


Would you however disagree that there is a growing feeling of resentment in the UK to the way this whole fiasco (Great British Bank Robbery as I call it) has been allowed to run it's course? If we cut all social services (primarily used by the poor) to fund the bail out of the rich guys, doesn't that sound a little like a UK before magna carta; with the govt playing the role of king and the rest of the population who don't have a position 'at court' being treated like serfs? Excuse the medieval comparison, but I think it works.

Something's rotten in the UK

They obviously want to continue with the criminal line so as to hold back others from other cities joining in. It wont be long IMO before they have to admit its got a lot to do with people just having enough of this opression we find ourselves in.

Notice every report and interview they highlighting the word "Criminality" "Thug", its called media brainwashing, it wont work cause I know for a fact people can see this for as the beginning of what it really is

Criminal meaning they are breaking the law, but who's laws are they breaking?
I wouldn't mind disobeying Lucifer or the NWO and their evil laws anyways.

Criminals and thugs, like all things, are relative to the point of view.

1738: FLASH – our source on the ground says the BBC reporter in Hackney has been bottled. Source was standing next to her at the time – she’s now getting out of there. Violence escalating.

From your link i found this nugget of info.



1559: LBC Radio is reporting that rioters are due to target Enfield and Southgate tonight. Last night saw a fake bomb scare in Southgate with 100 Territorial Support Group deployed into the area – perhaps tonight is the night the riots reach them? Hopefully not.


The TA . Hmm.

I just spoke to my mum who lives in Catford (near Lewisham).
Apparantly Lewisham High Street's closed off and they're trying to head up to Catford town centre.

Hope this is of some use, i'm still on the phone so not typing much right now but will let you know anything else as she finds out.

Including the reports of a man being dragged out of his car by 20 guys, or the bus full of people that has just been bricked?

Are you serious ? Have you ever talked to people of this mentality from this socio-economic group and age range ?

They have practically no interest in politics, no understanding of economics, and when they are old enough to vote, they rarely exercise their right.

They have little interest or knowledge about anything outside the immediate vicinity of their city.

Their interests revolve around little more than materialistic and hedonistic pursuits, which would be excusable considering their age, but unfortunately they have no concern if these pursuits come at the expense of anyone else.

The only reason they would be angry about the cuts is because they think it's going to be an end to their freebies from the state. They aren't concerned about not being employed in the future, because they are unemployable and are too selfish and bone idle to do a decent day's work, anyway.

The rioting and looting has nothing to do with a political or social statement, other than ''give me more stuff for free'.

People need to stop projecting, and vicariously enjoying this wanton violence because of their own shortcomings in society.

I agree.... the state of the World is not really looking great!!!

It costs a lot to live these days and things still keep going up!!

Benefits cuts isn't helping matters....

This shooting was just the trigger that all these looters needed as they were already at boiling point!!

Anyway, i think it will continue for a few days.... probably spread across the Country... I can see it going off in places like Bristol, manchester, Liverpool, Bradford....

It's no more rotten than its always has been. Where there's power, those seeking it will follow.

Most people blame the banks, nothing has been done about it yet. People are hurting through no fault of their own.

However, trashing high streets, burning cars, shops, people's homes and throwing rocks at the Police isn't going to solve anything. It only makes you as selfish and wrong as those who you are protesting about.

Who in their right mind would invest in them areas now? I wouldn't.

As you can see, I am from the UK. Our Mascot is the British Bull Dog. We may only be a small country, but our Government seem to have forgotten that if you kick the Dog, you are going to get a nasty bite.
Well, they sure kicked us where it hurts, and now we are biting back
Grrrrrrowl, woof woof

There is absolutely no need for what is happening. If these beings had a point to make, who is going to listen to them now? It is not about anything other than disrespect and the thoughts that the world owes them a favour.

Society is breaking down and this sort of behaviour is a result of it. How can any decent human being participate in this?

I am not having any of the excuses that are being thrown into the mix, there is no excuse for what they are doing. If you feel you have been dealt a bad hand...YOU are the only one who can CHANGE that. There are many people who have came from nothing and made a decent life for themselves.

Total disrespect for a crumbling Country, no pride in Britain. I would not even label these beings with thug, anarchists.....they are scroungers who take what they want and to hell with the consequences; nobody is pointing this out...their actions are being glorified with these labels, that are only worthy amongst them!!!

Hehehe... so Bojo's coming back eh? And just how does the ATS community feel an blonde haired, latin quoting, Oxford educated white guy is going to go down in a multi-racial melting pot situation? Given Bojo's tendency to put his foot in it, viewers may well be treated to shots of him being chased down Hackney high street with an angry mob behind him!

The Bojo Background - A man for the people (the rich people that is)

Johnson is the eldest of the four children of Stanley Johnson, a former Conservative Member of the European Parliament and employee of the European Commission and World Bank, and of his first wife, the painter Charlotte Fawcett (later Wahl),[5] the daughter of Sir James Fawcett, a barrister[6] and president of the European Commission of Human Rights.[7] He is the elder brother of Rachel Johnson, a writer and journalist, Jo Johnson, a columnist and Associate Editor of the Financial Times and Conservative MP for Orpington since the General Election of 2010, and Leo Johnson, a partner in PricewaterhouseCoopers specialising in Sustainability.[8

The press is making this look just like it is only looting and fighting.
I can not believe ATS that are posting here.
ATS THEM!
They are helping THEM! Take control.
They want marshal law and police control.
They want the army to come in and take away the last of the freedom.
This is being run by provocateurs. And on ATS.
Just look at all the post deleted.
From what I can see.
The police where hart less.
They shot him. Maybe he deserved it?
But the police did not tell the family anything.
The family had to demand for information.
And sill police said nothing.
