London, England- Riots in England, sparked by the police shooting of an unarmed man in Tottenham, have finally drawn the attention of David Cameron. In a statement made to the House of Commons, The British Prime Minister insisted that the police have been reinforced, and that, “The fight back has well and truly begun.”
Where the rest of humanity might view the riots as the “fight back”, Cameron wasn’t so convinced that the police brutality had sparked any of the criminal activity (seeing as we only have history as our guide, and never before has police violence led to excess criminal behavior, such as riots).
Cameron said about the shooting, “This was then used as an excuse by opportunist thugs in gangs, first in Tottenham itself, then across London and then in other cities,” which may have made sense, had it been true.
The fault, according to Cameron Lies with… Everyone.
“This is not about poverty, it’s about culture. A culture that glorifies violence, shows disrespect to authority, and says everything about rights but nothing about responsibilities,” Cameron droned on, displaying a complete lack of understanding of the world around him.
“We need more discipline in our schools,” he added, being sure not to leave any meaningless phrase unturned.
A double standard was all that was missing from this display of hot-air-blowing, however Cameron was quick to point out that the same social networking sites that he praised for bringing revolution to the Middle East is to blame for his underlings organizational skills, and it must be stopped.
As it stands now, yes, rioting is illegal, but if Cameron gets his way, talking about a riot will as well.
