The article is mostly composed of the transcription of tweets from various UK
celebrities. Great journalism there, Seamus.

As far as Mr. Oliver, I don't wish him ill but can anyone tell me if he comes by his
horrible 'mockney' accent honestly or if its just a put on? He annoys me so.

So at least there is a small upside to these riots.

If I were a rioter, young, testosterone-driven, and I read that tweet, I'd pulverize his place, just because I could. What a little tweet he is, anyway. Does he think the proletariat doesn't have Blackberrys? Elitist, ignorant fool. Now his employees have to suffer for his need to be "important".

It's pretty horrible, but he once said that he got his mouth smashed up as a child leaving him with that terrible bad lisp.

He's just horrifically brain damaged.

TV chef Jamie Oliver's restaurant was hit by rioters as violence spread to Birmingham.

But British police chefs are determined to avoid more violent outbreaks tonight.


Ok, that's how my brain read it anyway. Right out of Monty Python if you ask me. Harry "Snapper" Organs will be on the case.

fanbladesaresharp: Funny how Flashmolotov Mobs work like that.


I'd almost be OK with a true "mob", just acting out & destroying what they can reach. This, however, seems to consist more of folks exploiting the situation to loot stores. As Oliver mentions in the story, and as we've seen in the videos taken in recent days, the places being "mobbed" are stores containing desirable goods - electronics stores looted, then burned, while the bookstores next door remain intact. Restaurants destroyed, but cooking schools untouched.

It's one thing to be angry about a societal wrongdoing. It's quite another to use that as an excuse to be thieves.

It is interesting to see how vibrant Britain has become since the beginning of their great multicultural experiment. Socialism, mixed with a wide variety of incompatible imported cultures competitively using the government welfare system to loot the native populace has brought a great deal of excitement to this once boring place.

Usually, though, a looting mob burns out over one night and then they kinda get bored. This one's not stopping.

/yay that the bookstores aren't getting hit, though; if they were, I'd come over and crack some hooligan skulls myself

I think we should ship over some of our cops from LA, Chicago, Boston, and New York there to help. The Brit cops just need to be trained to shoot first and ask questions cover up the evidence later.

Multiculturalism and acceptance of people who are a little different is at fault? Not class warfare or injustice or anything like that? I suppose it's possible. But I'm putting that one waaaaaaay dowwwwwn on the list.

It's easy to scapegoat when you've got an axe to grind - that's why it's clearly the fault of video games, or colored people. Surely nothing larger and harder to pin down.

Wow..I don't know why I bothered reading it, but the article quotes an employee as saying ONE farking window was broken. What a whiny little biatch. Mobs in England evidently don't got nuthin' on mobs in Chicago.

Fatal police shooting sparks riot in north London
By Julie Hyland
8 August 2011

Rioting broke out in Tottenham, north London on Saturday night, following protests over the shooting death of Mark Duggan, a 29-year old father of four, who was killed by police on Thursday.

Duggan was in a taxicab on his way to visit his fiancée in the early evening when police stopped it. Members of an anti-firearms unit were accompanied by officers from the Specialist Firearms Command (CO19) in what has been described as a "pre-planned operation."

There are conflicting accounts of what followed. Police claim that Duggan opened fire, narrowly missing an officer, and was shot in self-defence. However, eyewitnesses have reported that Duggan was shot as he lay on the ground. He died instantly.

Sooo people are destroying everything in their own city and people are cheering them on? We deserve everything that happens to us, at this point.

Oh look. It's another apologist for the rioters. Sorry, Kev, but we can clearly see who's doing the rioting. You're "multicultural" excuses cannot absolve them of their crimes. It makes me SICK that good people have to put up with Chavscum like you and the rioters. Maybe you'd like to go out there and play patty-cake with your "bros".

Multiculturalism is "the doctrine that several different cultures (rather than one national culture) can coexist peacefully and equitably in a single country." Britain's politicians have subjected Britain to a massive experiment in multiculturalism, with immigration policies allowing in a huge number of people who hold ideologies which contrast strongly to the traditional ideals of Britain. Multiculturalists seem to believe that countries of western civilization have prospered primarily because of the characteristics of their geographic location instead of something about the characteristics of their populations. Furthermore, Multiculturalism's religious adherents apparently believe that the prosperity will continue unchanged as citizens of western civilization are demographically replaced by third world immigrants.

More people means more mouths to feed which means more farmers, distributors, store owners etc. More people means more commerce, it means you need more dentists and doctors. You need more housing built and serviced. You need plumbers and electricians. You need more manufactured goods.

If there is something interfering with the functioning of a society it is usually not the people at the bottom of the pile. Try looking somewhere else.

How does some screed of modern political theory explain a common human phenomenon - urban rioting? It has occurred, at one time or another, practically everywhere that humans have lived together in large cities. It occurs in every type of society there is, and for a very wide variety of reasons - often as trivial as a sporting contest.
Your superficial political theories don't even begin to explain or address the phenomena.
Any excuse to speechify, I guess.

So you would say there's a problem because of the cultures themselves and not because of intolerant assholes acting like intolerant assholes? (works both ways, takes two to tango, etc)

I suppose but that's going near the bottom of the list too.

Oh, so a group of people can't control themselves. They act like louts and thugs, and it's the government's fault for allowing a little competition in the labor market. I bet when people are rioting in Phoenix you won't blame the government for letting the Mexicans in to take their jobs. You'll blame the rioters.

Yeah but they didn't cover it up well enough. Thus the need for the training from our fine police officers.
