They're all pretty brash and bad-ass looters until they're escorted from the court room, sentancing in hand. Then they want to hide their face and flip off the press. Awww...too bad.

Also at Westminster, it emerged that a 17-year-old trainee dancer handed herself in after her picture was published in the paper and on television.

Whatever could that mean?

Nah, LotF worked because you were shocked by the breakdown. What would be shocking about a group of women degenerating into a tribal backstabbing swarm of harpies?

I thought all of these looters were people that were welfare recipients and leeches on society. First I was assured that they were all black or immigrants.


The vast majority of the rioters were black; the fact that you can collect exceptions to the rule doesn't disprove this. In any case the Left is trying to have it both ways with these riots, on the one hand pretending that there is no racial element and that everyone is doing it, but on the other hand claiming that black youth are fed up with unemployment and police brutality. Well, which is it?

Then when pictures and videos with white people looting surfaced I was assured that they would be from the upper classes, they would be the lower class lazy leeches of England. I guess I was completely lied to.

You have been lied to, tho' not in the way you seem to believe. Compare the pictures of the crowds of looters in the media with the pictures of individual looters they've chosen to focus in on. You'll see a far greater proportion of non-white faces in the crowd coverage than in the individual pictures. This is deliberate. Now take a look at the pictures of the crowds of volunteers who emerged to clean up after the riots; you can see the vast majority of them are white. But look at which volunteers the media chose to focus on individually. The BBC went out the other night and interviewed three black cleanup volunteers in a row, although the wide-angle shots suggested that the crowd was 97%+ white. This also is deliberate.

If you've managed to read this far with experiencing the kind of anaphylactic reaction which leads the sufferer to mindlessly drone "racist... racist..." you can also compare and contrast the coverage given to the ethnic vigilante groups (yay!) with that given to the white vigilante groups (boo Nazis!) Paying attention to these things can be very illuminating.

I don't know if they have the same expression in the United Kingdom, but in the United States we might use the term "butterface".

Everything there looks pretty good, but her face.

I'm sure it's mostly just the unfavorable lighting. Mostly.

stiletto_the_wise: momojoboo: I just don't get it. It's one thing to see looters who are poor and under privileged, but to see those who are well off rioting and looting? Why? What are they "rebelling" against?

You don't have to be "poor and under privileged" to be currently getting raped by business and the super-wealthy and feel the need to lash out.

Congratulations to the UK for having the lowest class mobility in the developed world. Here is your prize. By the way, USA has the second lowest.


This has little to do with class. As TFA mentions people charged so far include a second year law student. A few weeks ago the son of Pink Floyd member Dave Gilmore was sent to prison for similar acts, and you can't get much less socially disadvantaged that that.

The current Tory Prime Minister is a toff, but the last two, John Major and Margaret Thatcher, were upper working class/lower middle class. Thatcher was born above the corner shop her parents owned and Majors father was a former circus performer who owned a failing garden ornament business.

Don't confuse "class" with "status". Many upper class people are dismal failures (Prince Edward whose TV production company went bankrupt) while many born to very modest circumstances (Richard Branson, Alan Sugar, Philip Green, Charles Dunstone etc.) Contrary to the image most of The City is made up of ordinary people, many who were decidedly working class. The City is a meritocracy above all else. Look at Nick Leeson who was totally working class and didn't even go to a university but ended up a few years later as the head broker of Britains oldest bank. (Though after what he did I couldn't blame them if they went back to hiring only posh kids....)
And if you think the UK is class conscious then you clearly haven't spent time in the Hamptons or an Ivy League college.

maybe because only the cleanups in white neighborhoods received media coverage?

Actually you do realize that 2 different things went on there don't you? There were actual protest, which were mostly black. As the police focus units to respond to protest, which the participants weren't looting or rioting but did have confrontations with police, the criminals of all races saw this as an opportunity to loot. Then people, not at all unlike yourself, said it was all black and immigrants. Then when video emerged of people of all races looting they said it was mostly black, immigrants and the lazy white leeches. Now we find out that people across every racial and socioeconomic background were arrested what do these people say? "Well there may have been some whites, but the media made it seem like there were more than there were. The media is lying to you. Oh and there are more white people cleaning up than black people! So that means that it was black people doing the rioting." It makes me wonder how people like you can always blame thing on minorities and claim the media is lying when there is evidence that white people share an equal blame, then I read this statement you made in your post that I am responding to.

And I realize that you are an angry white man that feels that you are being repressed, probably because of the media.

I wasn't aware of that - just did a bit of Googling and found many stories regarding his arrest and sentencing. What a nimrod. Like his adoptive father couldn't afford any tuition rate anyone could throw at him. And he had "drunk whiskey and taken LSD and Valium" before the incident? Party on!

Unemployment, spending millions on a wedding, shooting unarmed civilians.

LOL

Which is why the media needs to be first against the wall. They lie for the rich and powerful. They are their puppets and have betrayed us a long, long time ago,

That's not her. That's a 17-year-old.

In other stories, the 11-year-old is described as silently smirking when her father instructed her to apologize to the judge.

I'm familiar with the term butterface but I've not yet learned the official parameters of the butterface. It's been attributed to all kinds of different faces and to my observation it appears to have everything in common with sharp knees. Now personally, I've pretty much associated the term with a square asslike face. Like Ben Affleck. This girl has a round face. I don't find a round face unappealing.

Can't see the face though. British dental care has never been a high priority.


Really? That's it? With everything going on the best troll you can find is an old and oh so very tired cliche? You do know that British dental health is the best in the world? Right? The OECD have done a chart and everything.

I know it's easy to cling to the ages old stereotypes, even when they are so far past their prime and any humour was used up a long time ago, but there are so many other things to laugh at. You should try it.
