Of course the predator political class are going to use the behaviour of the predator social class they created to justify their continued existence… no surprise there.
But all it takes is a look at the footage or a walk down the right street if you live in London, to see that the thugs in question, with a Blackberry in one hand and wearing expensive trainers, are not doing this because “Haringey Council has lost £41m from its budget”. Does anyone seriously think these rioters are doing what they are doing because their ‘Youth Services’ Danegeld was cut back?
Just look at this…
… these are the bastard children of Diane Abbott and David Cameron… and their lineage goes all the way back to Clement Attlee…and all the other members of the political class who created them as the Welfare State progressively hollowed out civil society. These are the product of the demon seed that was planted in 1945 and progressively watered ever more lavishly each year.
So yes, the largely fictitious ‘cuts’ are indeed to blame. Far far far too little and 20 years too late.
UPDATE: But I quite like this effort.
