We had gunfire in Newport last night, very unusual, daylight hours as well around 5-6pm.
I still think that when so many kids have been affected by nonsense like stop and search, seen police behave in an unprofessional manner, they loose all respect for the authority they are meant to have.

The police bringing out weapons is not a very bright thing to do, gangs have weapons too and believe me those looking to make a name for themselves amongst their peers WILL shoot police. (Maximum "Respect")
I still believe the police have lost the authority to try and reign this is now, they are not going to be listened to, their presence soon enough will be regarded as unwanted interference, the mobs will organise to try and chase them off whatever they want to take.

I find watching the news isn't as distressing when you play this song in the background.



Get out the water cannons, plastic bullets, and X-rep tasers. Surely this is why they buy this stuff?


As mentioned earlier no revolution here, just scum. Take screen shots from the CCTV down to the local jobcentre in the following days to identify the culprits.

I've just heard it as well, and I am afraid it is the first of many!

There have been reports of riots in Toxteth (Liverpool) last night. Which was clearly caused by opportunistic morons who had nothing to do with the original protests

I'm starting to think maybe not the 1st of many deaths but certainly the start of worse to come, if it was Gang related, there will be retaliation attacks, if it wasn't some group will latch onto it as a reason to fight. So I suspect that the Hossie's will be struggling to cope.

One way or another there are going to be more deaths, retalliation or otherwise. May the Goddesses have mercy on our spirits and dreams.

multiculturalism and multiracial are two different things.

I embrace a multiracial society, that is a society where many (multi) races live side by side. I deplore the idea of a society that has to abide by the customs of many (multi) cultures.

English culture is primarily based on the Christian culture (I'm an atheist but recognize a fact as fact) and to make it multicultural would mean incorporating a variety of laws (sharia?) and customs. This is wrong!

Historically Brit's, and more specifically the English have adopted many diverse cultural customs, and this is good if those customs are adopted voluntarily, over time. To attempt to enforce another cultures customs on the "indigenous" population can only lead to unrest. IF immigrants to this country want to live here, they must accept the primary culture of the UK and slowly introduce the best from their cultures.

seems to be a huge amount of scaremongering going on & unconfirmed reports, anyone got any confirmed news of what if anything is going on now?

Which were probably started by a gang of four youths.

Sorry, this entire thing has been blown way out of proportion. I’m about a 20/30 minute drive from Central London, and can tell you that everything is normal here. Hell, just as I type this an elderly women is walking past with her Tesco's shopping. I'd say it’s perfectly safe here..

Love how ATS is against MSM bull# yet everyone is hanging on to what the MSM reports as if there life depends on it.

This entire ordeal is complete media hype with hysteria thrown in.

Sure, these kids are robbing.

But they're unemployed.
The government has cut their youth programs.
Their families have had their social net cut.

The police budget has been cut.

What did you expect?
This is what happens when you cut government spending.
This is what happens when you ignore the poor.

Unemployed youth are leading the North African revolutions.
They are leading the French and English one.

It could start in the U.S.

Just hearing more rumours - unfounded but better to be vigilant.

Rumours of more unrest in Liverpool plus suggestions that Warrington, Sthelens and Wigan might be next...
