Life’s a riot

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I’m no royalist but didn’t it make a nice change to see hundreds of thousands of people all with one purpose gathering in London on Friday, and no rioting?

What does this tell us about the British psyche? I have no idea, to be honest, but what it tells me is what it told me during the G-8/2o – or whatever number it is these days – riots, the student riots & the recent Bristol Tesco riots, hell, even the Poll Tax &  Tottenham riots of the 80s.

The people who riot couldn’t give a flying fuck what the cause is, they just love to riot.  It’s probably even the same people who cause trouble on all of them. Any excuse to batter a copper & they’re there.

Can anyone possibly imagine that anyone willing to violently assault another person has even a passing concern about the demise of the High street & local long-established business?
