Riot In Tottenham, No Blondes Involved

Yes, apparently, it's a Mob of No Appearance, with absolutely no defining characteristics whatsoever, although it's certain they were provoked into by da cutz.

Hey, I'm not an economist, but I'm pretty sure shooting gunmen is pretty much fiscally neutral.

Still, let's check the scorecard here: two references to her work in 1500 pages prove Melanie Phillips caused the Oslo massacre, but there's no connection between outbreaks of mass lawlessness and a wider environment where a Labour MP coming out in defence of the vital human right to shoot at police officers without consequence is treated as a perfectly reasonable position.

Gawd, but the loons are out in force in that comment thread:

"...the most frustrated of the rioters are those who don't want to accept handouts, who'd like to get something better but have no chances because of their backgrounds."

They don't want handouts, but they DO want 50 inch colour flat screen TVs. Free.

Have any camera crews got up there yet or are they having to use stock footage from Soweto?

Wouldn't work - Soweto is much cleaner than Tottenham...

I reckon Dave Hill's been on that thread. Have you seen his CiF effort?

Dave's just not been the same since Slade spilt up unfortunately.

Handouts undermine a man's pride. Taking a TV from Curry's is pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. Or sumfink.

No blondes involved?

Watched the six o'clock news on the beeb tonight. Amazingly, they provided sympathetic coverage of a lady who'd been burned out of her flat above the carpet shop.

The coup de grace, with tearful close up, came when she told the interviewer that the worst experience of all was when - as she was abandoning the burning building - she'd seen: "A guy, a white guy with blonde hair [picture sweeping gesture to indicate length of hair] walking out with a rug under his arm, laughing."

I'm sure that under any other circumstances his ethnicity and hair colour would have been reported with fearless neutrality regardless and in any case.

Didn't Breviek's idol "Fjordman" predict that the "multicultural civil war" in Europe would begin first in Britain?

What's so "extremist" about those predictions now?
