^ Works for me too
Out rioting last night, and my mates ran into this shop, and grabbed some marinated steak, a bottle of pure French wine, and a trifle.
This isn't just any riot...its an M&S riot.

Two of the rioters were arrested after looting from Tescos and then swiping their club cards on their way out.
Every little helps!

warning: broad sweeping generalizations will follow.
i think anybody involved in this riot should just be shot with a taser, dragged to the police station and unceremoniously chucked in the cells.
I'm not going to apologize for my opinion. There is no reason for anybody to be involved other than pure criminal activity. 99% of the rioters don't know or care about the cause. The police should just knock these twunts down and cuff them. They shouldn't have any rights, they shouldn't be able to hide behind 'wrong place wrong time' crap.
I blame parents. If parents brought their kids up properly they wouldn't even dream of rioting. If you're a parent of someone who is out at night during these riots then you clearly know they are involved. I am a parent and would not let my children out at night.
This is going to cost thousands to put right and you can guarantee that none of the morons involved are going to be charged for the damage.

Have just seen a local complaining about "police heavy-handedness" in the incidents in Leeds just after an article in the main news about people complainig the police were too lienient.
This goes a long way to explain the difficulty for police chiefs and the government.
In other news I suspect what we really need is a spell of bad weather. I can't imagine a lot of the yoofs being out in 10 degree wind and rain
And now some general rambling that I am getting off my chest.
Talking tonight we think that there a lot of people feel entitled to stuff. A lot of reality shows offer a quick shortcut to fame and money, people see that an then get frustrated and feel they are owed. they want the £500 smart phone and the huge LED tv but don't feel they should have to work for it.
There also seems to be a lack of work ethic. I refuse to believe there are no job prospects, just jobs people are not prepared to do because they feel it's "beneath" them. They want to start on the big money and that's not how it works. My sister in law lives reasonably comfortably. Both her and her husband left school after a-levels and got rubbish jobs, lived in a small house and worked their way to where they are now. I sometimes feel that ethic seems to have got lost.
I accept that a lot of that was generalisation and probably not true for the majority of society but I felt a need to get it off my chest.
I don't know what the cause of these riots is, and why these kids have decided to attack people, destroy buildings, and lose their respect for the law, but as a society we need to know, so we can start to put it right. If it is the parents, which it may well be, how do we put that right?
I know its good that they're trying to prosecute them now but how many positive ids do you think they'll get?
I'm sure at least 75% of them were wearing hoodies, tracksuit bottoms and trainers. That's not exactly a unique description
