You Brits are getting exactly what you deserve after the last riots, all the arsonists were using social media to burn everything to the ground as they stayed one step ahead of the law.


Hang on...

Millions of responsible people in the UK were demanding that the Police use reasonable force against those causing the riots. In addition, it's widely accepted that the majority of those rioting were using the CLOSED, SECURE AND ANONYMOUS BBM system provided by Blackberry and not Twitter or FaceBook.

Even if they were using those methods (which in some cases they clearly were) they can be monitored in real time without requiring legislation to monitor every phone call, email, text, url or Skype conversation.

I don't really get what you're suggesting. Because we were not out on the streets stopping rioters we're to blame? Because we didn't let the government snoop on all our communications before it's our fault the riots happened?

The fact is, the Police (conveniently) failed to act to stop the riots, while our government was "out of town" (again conveniently). Within weeks of the riots they had plans drawn up for riot controls and they had a metal wall ready to roll out to protect Parliament in London for the next peaceful demonstration.

They could have prevented the riots from spiraling out of control on the first night, by treating the family of the man shot with basic respect, and then using adequate force to stop those rioting on the first night. The lack of police response was

Agreed, and enough almost said. another line was "catching under age porn surfers" that could be read in two ways, Denver is obviously not a lawman. Anyway most of us are already tied to the legal system from cradle to grave, dammit we don't even own the car we drive, we are only 'the keeper' in legalese.

You were cut short on words, perhaps to add 'surprising', that's only my take on it. Nowadays, when something bad happens, there is the equally bad but, belated response...Nah! I don't even want to go there.

All this terrorist crap makes me piss...

REMEMBER THE IRA?
Real terrorists that blew # up...

Now it's just a bogieman in a burka.
I don't remember this much infringement on my rights when they were at it on the mainland..


Yep....the hypocrisy is galling. When I worked my first ever job in Glasgow (in about 1984) Prince Charles came to visit my bosses shop (she started her business with his trust) They brought round sniffer dogs etc before he arrived and the visit went well. Two weeks later they found the biggest IRA arms cache ever found in Scotland in the basement of the flats directly across the road......it barely made the news.

It wasn't so long ago that Manchester city centre was blown up, It wasn't so long ago that Blair negotiated 'the good friday agreement'/ It wasn't much later that Blair claimed 'we don't negotiate with terrorists' in respect of Al Quaida (The CIA Mujahideen Database).

There was no infringement of our rights when we were victim to real terrorism because they claimed that to do so would be playing into terrorist hands. Why the double standard now? It's obvious the fear mongering is simply an excuse to erode our individual rights. But why? Because they can?

Fun way to look at what some are saying here,....when the automobile became common and was used in criminal enterprise it was unfair that the coppers didn't stay on their horse and buggies to chase them down.

The Riots over there last year proved the lowest element of society will use the latest communication technology to cause the maximum amount of chaos. Whether they responded to it lighthanded or not wouldn't have changed that fact.

As far as a few taking special offense at the connection to the Riots, truth often is painful to acknowledge.
I'll even throw in the connection to arrests made over there of certain so called anonymous groupers. Can't leave their blame out of the equation.

We may have nothing to hide, but what happens 3 years from
Now when the law changes and it's an offence to admit any minor crime - so you chat to a friend in what you thought was a private call about how you did 50 down a 40 and a week layer a fixed penalty notice lands on your door.
You criticise govt policy - get struck off electoral register...
Where does this end?!
If the people cannot stand up and put a stop to it - then they won't stop any further draconian laws that can be enforced using this new ability to track ALL communication.
If you are in the UK - sign the epetition online, write to your MPs and councillors at wewritetothem.com - tell all your friends and family, despite how fruitless that may be...keep telling them.
I have and it's beyond a joke the lack of interest...most people just don't care it seems and this is how the govt gets away with it all...

I'm one to talk, being in America. But you guys got 2 options being the try-out country.

1. Everybody abandon cell phones, telephones, and internet. Go back to the world before 1995.
2. Protest as a country, and shut your parliament down.

One or both of those options will comandeer enough panic and melee to stop commerce and make them take the people SERIOUSLY.

The thing about living in a free and democratic country, is that crime will exist and even terrorism. But, I would rather have these security risks and remain in a free society than to clamp down on society with draconian security measures. I'm not scared of terrorists, I'm not scared of criminals. In a free society you take your chances.

I am scared of an over bearing government who seeks to monitor the behavior of all it's citizens. Collectively punishing society for the few wrong uns out there.

Would people be happy to have their post delivered mail opened by a government body before you get to see it. Because that's exactly what they are doing here.

I'd like to ask if the people who say "if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear". Do you close the door on the bathroom when you go for a number 2, or keep it open for all to see your business?

Wrong on that assumption, It was gangs who were using their mobiles and their blackberries to send messages to others, telling them where to go and loot shops.

There were only a few who used social media such as face book to incite riots.

So get your facts right before you spout more crap thank you very much.

And not all Brits were rioting so you are wrong once again.

Never said all Brits were rioting.
The majority wanted a weakhanded response though.
It only takes a few to ruin it for the many. Thanks for agreeing with me.

'

That does not say I said all Brits were rioting.
It does refer to they are getting what they asked for by the majority of the population demanding a wimpy response to rioters. It allowed the riots to escalate far further than normal and now this is what you get for it, more laws with security to catch em before they go berserk. That is the message the public gave the govt. They don't want to see what is necessary to take down a riot so the only alternative is to stop them before they happen.

You all asked for it so stop the whining.

Common place response, dont like the message attack the messenger.

I see three groups of varying responsibillity,
1) the rioters, few to be sure
2) the majority who let the govt know they have no stomach to take on a riot
3) the remaining who either stayed silent or were ready to bust some heads in to defend their own, they became the minority who got the shaft from both ends. Blame the rioters and your wimpy neighbors who sided with the majority opinion at the time. When that don't work look in the mirror and blame yourselves for letting these new laws happen by not having a loud enough voice back when it was needed.

There I have included all Brits, happy?
Do continue whining about it though.

Ach we managed to organize the occasional riot perfectly well long before the advent of the net, mobile phones, facebook and twitter. How did we do that again? Oh yeah.....it used to be called talking.

Tell you what.....we'll all be good boys and girls all the time and promise not to do a thing as the government screws us all into the deck for the sake of big business and personal gain. We'll just accept it and everything will be just fine. 'There there now, hush, don't worry about a thing, big brother will "take care" of you.'
