Posted on 08/06/2011 11:27:38 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Hundreds of people turned the deprived London area of Tottenham into a war zone Saturday, rioting and setting fires after police shot and killed a man.
At least two police cars, a bus and a store were torched but no one was seriously injured. The riots ostensibly followed the police shooting of Mark Duggan. An investigation is underway to determine the circumstances of the shooting after police stopped Duggans vehicle.
Mounted police in riot gear moved into the area to quell the riots. Tottenham is described by British media as one of the most economically deprived areas in Britain, one which has a history of violent riots.
While the protest movement in Israel for social justice" remains peaceful, and sometimes more like a festival, the riots in Britain may be a hint of what may be in store as another worldwide recession looms.
At the same time the riots erupted in Tottenham, the London Guardian published a prophetic column by Nick Cohen, who asked, When will there be riots? When are the British going to imitate the Greeks and the Spanish and snap?

Forget tear-gas and water cannons.
Disperse the rioters with job applications.
What a shame. The rioters were probably just getting their lives turned around too.
London police have guns? Who knew? They we probably equipped with the best of what they confiscated from the citizens.
England swings like a pendulum do, Bobbies on bicycles two by two, Westminster Abbey the tower of Big Ben, the rosy red cheeks of the little children.
That was a different England Roger Miller sang about.
I know. I was just thinking of the song and better times.
A shame that in Israel you have idiots wanting “social justice” progressive speak..when I read that today I was surprised since I didn’t know the movement spread over there too
Well you got me thinking too. I was just listening to Old Toy Trains.
London calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
London calling, now don’t look at us
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain’t got no swing
‘Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing
The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drowning-and I live by the river
London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, an’ go it alone
London calling upon the zombies of death
Quit holding out-and draw another breath
London calling-and I don’t wanna shout
But when we were talking-I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain’t got no highs
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes
Now get this
London calling, yeah, I was there, too
An’ you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
After all this, won’t you give me a smile?
I never felt so much a’ like
I just turned on Rhapsody on and listened to England Swings and Dang Me.
England must exercise restraint, and not retalitate with disproportionate force. The right of self-determination of the Yobs must be respected. This matter must be brought before the UN Committee on Human Rights.
UN to recognize Tottenham as independent State once
border questions are settled...
Europe is going the way of Neanderthals.
It’s going to have to get really, really, really bad before the West finally turns its back on socialism of all kinds.
This is just a tiny start on that.
Cornwall to send bounties to families of Tottenham martyrs slain by the Angloist Entity.
Stop the occupation of Tottenham now.
Free the Tottenstinians!
River tug flotilla to break Tottenham blockade.
ISA to send volunteers to stand in front of British bulldozers.
Who knew? Everybody in the country, more or less. All British police forces have armed units on constant standby. 'Unarmed police' simply means that the ordinary PC on the street isn't routinely armed.
Fish chip bomb plot uncovered, mastermind dies in
hail of gunshots. Tottenham Liberation Organisation
mourns loss, says will not give up struggle.
They’re idiotic like a fox. If Tzipi Livni, Shimon Peres, or both, aren’t behind this, I’ll eat my hat. Peres did the same thing to oust Shamir: Force a no-confidence vote. That’s the name of the game. Doesn’t matter what you force it over.
Maybe it was caused when a woman boarded a bus and sat where she felt like. Or maybe there was widespread anger when someone drove a car on a Saturday.
I see the humor escaped you. I’ll type more slowly the next time.
