British P.M says rights helped lead to U.K riots
David Cameron has lashed out against the European Convention on Human Rights in the wake of the London riots.
His rhetoric, to me, seems to be very authoritarian...and what can he do in this situation OTHER than tackle the behavioural problems of a particular demographic, whereby affecting the general public as well. He promises to crack down on Britain's 120,000 most troubled families. This exact promise has been used in other countries (including my own - Australia) to try and institute massive electronic "supervision". It has failed before, but with the riots still fresh in everyone's minds, will the British people just agree to this like they agreed to all the CCTV cameras in London in the first place?edit on 15-8-2011 by SuperZepto because: Made the link work
