I personally think this problem is isolated to the inner cities which is why the rest maybe got away with it.It was all deprived areas and they thought they had found themselves an excuse.

The poster above gave a more reasonable description. In my opinion there are many factors, and I dont proclaim to have enough information or be in a position to be able to give a definitive answer. There are not simple solutions.
However I will continue to deny ignorance in its many forms.
And you'll deny ignorance by telling me there were diffrent reasons of which you will not tell me about??
sorry that doesnt cut it... the OP looked for opinion on why certain things happend and why they happened in certain places (or to be more accurate didnt happen in certain places)...
so far your reply is... "diffrent things but not what you think, but im not telling you what?" really?
Keep on denyingedit on 12-8-2011 by GonzoSinister because: (no reason given)

Again you see it is a small area of Glasgow. Much of Glasgow is still 'comfortable'. Sometimes it is "just the nature of the beast".

i think it shows each region has its own subculture which doesn't react to events specific to another region. e.g if there were riots in Scotland i doubt they would spread anywhere else if they were initiated by a local event.
