    It is with regret that tomorrow’s (Wednesday 10 August) international fixture with Holland at Wembley has been called off.

    More news will follow on TheFA.com - The website for the English football association, The FA Cup and The England football team shortly.

    I have two very sad nephews now

    Should call off the London matches in the premier league as well. If people can't behave, they can't have their treats.

    Nope - Cameron has had it easy in his life - everything has been delivered for him on a silver plate, he has never had to work hard, he's married a nice rich lady and he is more out of touch than the Royal Family. The Tories have created a society where vastly overpaid footballers, models, and MPs can flaunt their wealth and behave in any manner they see fit, and are still treated as near gods by the media. The youth these days expect instant fame and wealth, and instead they get unemployment, poverty, and no future. And we all act surprised when they revolt. It was the same in the 80's during the recession and it's the same now. You don't need to go to Eton to work that one out.

    Yep, its a society of people feeling entitled to everything. I grew up knowing that if I want something, I have to work hard and I can earn enough to get it. Kids now don't, we've got credit cards for that, or the government will give them welfare cheques to keep them happy.

    As soon as the government says enough is enough, BAM, they through their toys out of the pram.

    It's the BIG SOCIETY at work.... people helping themselves..... it's what Cameron wished for as part of his programme of cuts to public services. People should be careful what they wish for......

    So if Labour had been in power, and this guy had been shot, there would be no riots?
    These riots would happen regardless of who was in power, it goes far beyond which political party is in charge at the moment. And I'm sorry, to say that these people are doing this because they expect fame and wealth and get poverty and no future?
    I grew up in hackney in the 80's, so should I be down there taking a new plasma screen for myself because I grew up in a single parent household with very little money?
    People are now living in an age where a £2 lottery ticket could give you countless millions, should we all go out and rape and pillage because the promise of that doesn't always happen?

    There were reports of some scattered violence in Nottingham last night too. Cars set alight and the main shopping centre attempted to break in. These are people in an area that has had a massive amount of government money put in to rejuvinate the area. These are not impoverished young children trying to smash and grab, they are opportunistic thugs who think that anarchy means you get a new laptop if you put the window through in Comet

    Erm, this has been going on for years. I don't think the media has ever treated an MP like a god for flaunting their wealth.

    And did you grow up under a tory or labour govt.? And which govt. did these dole wallers grow up under? I'm the same, I work for my money - I believe we are around the same age so I know the answers to those questions btw


    To blame the upbringing of the current youth on a govt. which has been in power for less than a year is a wee bit silly I think you'd agree.
