    Extreme? Hardly - it's pretty much exactly how the Nazis took over.

    Hopefully the riots will be shut down soon, and there will be time for people to forget before the next election.

    Birmingham's closing up early again. BCU have just shut, I'm glad the missus left early today.

    Even my local Tesco have locked up their side security doors, and I'm in the suburbs!

    I hope they don't postpone the cricket tomorrow

    Hmmm I've a solution - RELEASE THE POLAR BEARS AND THE LIONS!

    That said, I've been reading on a few edl/anti-edl boards and before the first brick was thrown they started foaming about race.

    It has nothing to do with deprived/race/community/not-getting-hugged-enough, it boils down to someone suspected of being a drug dealer (Did read suspected killer, but the link was pulled) being shot in a taxi, with an illegal fire-arm, and the family not being given the answers quick enough (5 mins after, I can understand, but 5 hours later you'd expect some form of a story).

    The Norwegians lost 92 of their own, and asked for more democracy and greater understanding, and better communications.
    One person gets shot by police, and we're practically burning the cities to the ground, and calling for the Army to be deployed.

    A tweet from a Waterstones employee

    "We'll stay open, if they steal some books, maybe they'll learn something". A little light relief #londonriots
