    Woah, steady on there chaps, you don’t want to encroach on anyone’s human rights to batter people, steal, vandalise and burn everything in sight to the ground.

    Even better from Malcolm Wicks Labour Croydon North MP:

    “”We need to make sure people are sentenced not just for weeks, but for years. People could have died last night, and I surprise myself a little by saying I wouldn’t rule anything out.”

    “If the government think troops are needed I would support that and if in the longer term we need water cannons I would support that too.”

    “We cannot abandon the people of Croydon.”

    Whatever next when a socialist talks like that?

  • When trouble like this erupts we must show tolerance and think of the enrichment that has been brought to these diverse communities.

  • According to the IPCC Duggan did not fire, but did have a loaded weapon. I will shed no tears over the death of an armed [email protected] He didn’t shoot because the cops quite rightly didn’t give him the chance to. End of story, job well done.

    Agree completely with your comments.

    The criminal reaction by the ferral scum to this little sh*t’s death has been outrageous.

  • riots have already fizzled out … this story is old news … unless of course you’re my mum watching the bbc live feed.

    as enjoyable as it is to chat about the riots … i believe there’s no substance to it, it’s just hyped by the press.

    Well, I thought Monday’s action was far more exciting.

    It’s not clear whether the BBC and Sky have been asked to stop broadcasting so much live footage, because it encourages copycat riots. But nothing would surprise me.

  • The “underclass” bring the nation to a halt – send them police and dogs

    The bankers bring the world to its knees – send them bailouts and bonuses

    I abhor the violence. But I can understand the nihilism & anger.

  • think of all the space created from the burned out buildings, they can build more rabbit hutch flats to squeeze people into

  • i wonder if the no smack policy at schools and the freephone to childline has contributed to the riots, after all a swift kick or smack often put us in place

  • Add to that, teachers allowing pupils to address them by their first name creates an ill disciplined atmosphere in schools.

    What Sneaker says, they’re as bad as each other.

    What’s the moral difference between the Daily Telemailexpress crowing that “Homeowners got richer by £100 a week last year” when all the homeowners have to do to achieve this is exert political pressure on the government to cut Council Tax, interest rates (a stealth tax on savers) and freeze new development and these thugs on Facebook boasting about their new jeans or flat screen?

    As far as I can see there isn’t one.

    I agree with the sentiment of your comment but I doubt if the majority of the sh*ts creating the mayhem have even heard of what the bankers have done, now what Cheryl Cole has done is another thing.

    I agree with the sentiment of your comment but I doubt if the majority of the sh*ts creating mayhem have heard of bankers let alone know what they do or have done, bet they know all about Cheryl Cole though.

    What’s exciting about a group of retards causing mayhem?

    Why shouldn’t the authorities ask the media to stop broadcasting live coverage because it may encourage copycat actions?

    It seems an eminently sensible idea but common sense went out of the window years ago in this country.

    If those are examples of UKIP thinking then I’m out.

    Mr G @ 12

    What’s exciting about house prices and rents becoming ever more unaffordable for young people?

    Why shouldn’t the authorites ask the media to stop broadcasting live coverage of successful NIMBY pressure because it may encourage copycat actions?

    It seems an eminently sensible idea but common sense went out of the window years ago in this country.

    If that’s an example of Tory/LibDem/Green/UKIP/Labour/Home-Owner-Ist thinking then I’m out.

    When you refer to the ‘no smack’ policy in schools, do you mean the restriction in opiate consumption which may indeed quieten things considerably?

    @21 – Apparently this is partly to do with cutting the EMA – Education Maintenance Allowance, or Ecstasy and Marijuana Allowance as I like to call it, so you may be on the right track. If you’re not getting your meds it’s going to make you a bit fighty I imagine.
