Brits Arm Themselves To The Teeth Via Amazon.

Panic buying at its finest.

With widespread reports of a systematic failure by police to protect businesses in homes across four different English cities in the last three days and nights from looters and rioters, it appears a worrying trend is emerging – vigilantism.

Like something out of a zombie apocalypse movie, worried Brits are stocking up on batons, baseball bats and shovels to keep the hordes at bay and protect themselves and their families and who could blame them. Multinational e-commerce website Amazon.co.uk, (see pic above), has recorded a soaring trade over the last 24 hours in the aforementioned items in their Sports & Leisure section.

London’s Big Society Is On Fire.

Boris has cut short his holiday because of the riots. This shit just got real!

As ineffectual politician after ineffectual politician fill up our TV screens bleating about how the riots in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester last night were started by ‘opportunistic common thieves and thugs‘, and have absolutely nothing to do with far deeper and darker problems in our society, flick them the fingers and blow a large raspberry at them all…and then change the channel because Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has probably just started.

As much as David Cameron and his sitcom live-in life partner Nick Clegg will tell you otherwise, (see the Tory’s election flagship policy the ‘Big Society‘), British society has been crumbling for some time and just like a large puss filled wart on the end of your genitalia it was ignored in the hope that it would just fix itself. We are not condoning what has happened over the last couple of days but to solve a problem you need to try and establish what the problem is, and this malfunction goes far deeper than the shooting of a 29 year-old father of four by police in Tottenham.

Pretty much everyone we contacted yesterday online knew in advance that trouble was coming. On Twitter yesterday we found this:

…a picture taken by someone living in the Tottenham area who found these fliers around High Street basically advising people who may be worried that they had been filmed by police looting and rioting to change their appearance. This in itself could merit a fantastic new reality TV show: Extreme Makeover: Anarchy Edition:

‘Will is worried that the police may have filmed him looting JD Sports the night of the riots and has become a recluse, refusing to leave the house for fear of being arrested. So we’ve sent over a crack team of our top urban stylists to give Will a make over, so he can venture outside and stride the streets of Tottenham with the confidence he once had. Say bye-bye face scarf and skip hat, say hello comedy glasses, fake nose and eye patch.’

The media are reporting that those responsible for the civil unrest are ‘kids’ and predominately Black or Asian. Here’s a link to a video showing a man being assaulted and mugged in broad daylight on the streets of London yesterday. His assailants aren’t ‘kids‘ and they certainly aren’t all Black or Asian. Another video below shot by a Sky News camera crew shows the looting of a sporting goods shop in Tottenham by various people of all ages, sex and ethnicity.

These rioters are well organised, mobile and after the events of last night, pretty much in control.

 

 

The Streets Of London Are Awash With Piss!

No, they literally are, as demonstrated in the video above shot by a resident of Old Street in Hoxton, London, know only as Harry Monk, (yeah, we get it).

Fed up having to smell urine wafting in through his house every night Mr Monk cracked out his video camera and started filming all the pissers who decided to drop trou and take a whizz on his street. He explains on his Youtube page:

The many clubs and bars in Old Street attracts a constant stream of drunken people that cannot be bothered to walk 50 yards to a urinal and prefer to piss in the nearest side street. The local mini cab drivers also drop people off there and congregate waiting to pick up fares. This goes on all night, all weekend and is a source of distress to the local residents especially the elderly people who reside on the ground floor of the estate. Neither Hackney council or Islington, who license the clubs, seem bothered about the effect that this is having on the quality of life for the local residents especially as most of the worst establishments are located on the very edge of the borough of Islington and therefor Hackney residents who live opposite are totally ignored.
