I could be cynical and say priority. Property is worth more and the crowd more genteel in Hackney. Looks like the building on fire in Peckham is v close to the Post Office - it's opposite Netto!

Well I think that the issue around the suggestion of more funding of the police is that it's coming out of a limited pot of money. So a relatively small group of people will be causing money going from money supporting the general public to funding the police for one off events.

Stop benefit payments to these morons and put that towards policing. Job done.

Not sure that it would fund any major kind of increase in police levels. But it's a nice thought.

Met Police urging parents to find out where their children are. A couple of problems with this suggestion:

1) It is probably "parent" rather "parents"

2) The parent probably could not give a rat's arse what their children are up to. Too busy getting smacked off their t*ts or breeding.

I can guarantee that there are many parents who are deeply concerned about the whereabouts of their children this evening.

I think plod was referring to the parents of rioting/looting kids

I don't know if Pieces of Eight is trolling or serious but I can't see how his/opinions expressed in this thread are in any way helpful.

I am certainly not trolling and I am very serious. I am absolutely sick to the back teeth of working every day, paying my taxes and generally playing by the rules of civilised society while I see a growing underclass of individuals swaggering around with their pitbulls and aggressive attitude. They have absolutely no interest in working or engaging with their wider community and seemingly taking pride in being pig ignorant. Meanwhile, middle-class tw*ts look for "reasons" and blaming this lawlessness on "poverty" and "exclusion". Absolute twaddle.

For Gawds sake, I'm just hearing Livingstone bang on about the rioters/looters motivations and being the first generation since the great depression to fear for their future. Please spare me from this cobblers.

You are rather resorting to stereotypes. I appreciate your anger and I have friends who live just off Mare St so I'm equally concerned but lazy generalizations are not helpful.

O.K some of them may have jobs. So they are employed pig ignorant scum.
