For me the riots are a long time coming but they are part and parcel of the recession yet most of the rioters are probably unaware of it due to the unfolding domino affect where your neighbourhood idiot decides to go and rob a store rather than protesting for change but why?
Firstly your talking about mainly benefit class people used to living off the back of everyone else and generations of them. Problem with having generation laziness is often they breed above the levels of functional society as people who “work” don’t have the time or funding while these parasites expect to live off mine and your income. The benefit system was never setup for this and in older generations in history you will find its a shameful thing to be unemployed and even more so to be on benefits. At the same time I am not talking about those seeking work as this falls into another category but the ones who’s parents never worked and neither did the grandparents, people lacking morals or respect. Typical example of this in action was the Malaysian student robbed after his jaw was broken. These are the real scum of the UK and the numbers have been growing for decades as the baby breeders have been humping they’re way to a free council house, unemployment benefit and child support.
At the same time I can understand “real people” wanting to protest being priced out of local housing markets, seeing the tuition fees rise stealing an education from them and finding out they’re government riddled them for debt for at least 20 years and expect them to bend over and take it. I started moving out in 2007 because I could see the beginning of the end and it still stands today 5 days on and the UK government are “talking about action” not ACTION same reason offloading the bloated civil servants hasn’t happened and the S.S. UK continues to head for that big economic iceberg so far only scraping the surface.
The whole of society needs to change in the UK as it can’t all fall firmly in the hands of the government as responsible for everything. The consumerism that has riddled the whole nation with debt needs to stop. Buy British first over Chinese cheap products and a rebuilding of national pride. Many of the rioters have been black and Asian (Not Asian as in Chinese or Filipino but Pakistani etc.) same as many of these areas are so called deprived. In reality they have been left to their own devices too long and the country needs to wake up to the fact its arrogance about peoples rights are now wasted as the ability to have them for being one of the most skilled populations in the world has declined very rapidly to where we are today where the scum of the UK has pretty much ground the country to a stand still yet I also believe there is valid rioting going on none of it is being discussed or shown. Another PR win for the UK Police forces until the next time it all happens again because they have ignored the underlying issues in the UK, its youth and its economy.
I don’t agree with looting which is something I want to point out here at the same time if it was more politically motivated I would have expected government buildings burnt to the ground not family owned businesses. The deaths that have happened also disgust me as more like monkeys on a rampage than a political uprising. At the same time does rise the question why the UK is so quick to support riots in other countries and condemn it at home (although we did send arms to the middle east no doubt and got some contracts in wet ink for oil rights if they win).
I have spent years working amongst people that are so called underpriveldged which is a bizarre scenario as they are often better off than people that work in the UK. On top of that many are from other countries that have landed in the streets of gold used to real hardship but here complaining that benefits are late or trying to lie about the number of kids they have for extra child benefits. Could take the Philippines stance “if you don’t like it leave” but obviously we all know the answer to that, free house, free rent, free money who wants to leave? But can still complain as we have no jobs even though we don’t actually want to work. Incapable of putting even a draught excluder back on a front door they broke they get the council to send someone round to replace it free of charge. Cost? probably around £40 an hour for the worker when you add in the administration and his pension. You see this is why I live in the Philippines if I want to help I can, I come across people needing help all the time but can filter out the drug addicts, the drunks and the liers, in the UK its called TAX you don’t see where it goes just how much was taken. So many people grumble but very few have taken positive steps to improve their lives such as not getting into debt in the first place or at least start reducing it. Lets face it the average rioter at the moment won’t even know what they are rioting for except that new TV and an iPAD, thinking about it all I can hear is these dumb idiots talking slang thinking its cool but they end up sounding mentality defunct similar to the mocking done on Little Britain. Going to be a rapper! but too dumb to even wrap a burger at McDonalds cheers to the UK to creating such morons who think they have a “Right” to stealing and benefits without any thought of the workers, Cheers to the UK for selling out people like myself who pay our way and feel like Atlas half the time with so many people living off my back, Cheers as I live out of the country and my only concern is family back home and a hope the country wakes up and sorts itself out.
