I have been told that the Croydon mob is headed to Purley Way IKEA. I can't say this is for sure going to be their route, but I trust my man on the ground. Anyone in the area, take care.
What do these people have against house furniture?

I've heard from a couple of friends in these areas that this flyer has been handed out
It was apparently the same one used at the Tesco riots in Bristol.
I've also noticed a legal company on twitter and facebook spreading the same message and telling people not to speak to the police.

Well even if it's 40% of the population causing the riots they'll say it's a minority

You know a lot of people are saying it's about a minority of hard core yobs. Well, if that's the case, we sure got a heck of a lot of them as they seem to be popping up all over London and the UK. As I've said before, the Mark D event was the flashpoint; since then though I think it's just turned into out and out mayhem. There has been a pressure building in the UK for ages, now we're seeing the lid blow off... I know these guys are doing bad things, I just think that it's also a reflection of where our successive lack of decent govt social policies, govt for the rich by the rich, has created an accident waiting to happen scenario. Today the accident is happening and whatever b*llsh*t Theresa May tries to sell us, we know exactly how we came to this point. By letting people like Blair, Brown and their minions (like May) rule our country. Selfish politicians will always produce a selfish society. As Home Secretary I would expect her resignation for allowing the country to disintigrate into this kind of chaos.

Well anytime a government has gone too far and stopped working for the people (people meaning the working class, not the yuppies sipping wine on a 2k foot yacht), that usually leads to Revolution. Hey the French Monarchy learned about the same time King George did, that a people pissed off is a mighty force to be reckoned with. When the people have had enough, heads will roll and more often than not, the heads that end up rolling are whoever the incompetant person(s) were that just kept letting stuff go by and being too lazy to get involved.
