draw nearer, fill your rucksack.
I am bemused by the news channels showing confused "middle class" (we aint not working class types are we not) people discussing the "senselessness" of the riots and looting going on across London.
One "Confused of Clapham" chappy went into the street to interview a girl. "We're getting our taxes back," she said.
Now, I don't expect she actually has a job but seeing as bankers, corporations and politicians have been robbing the poor for... well, forever it is only right that the breaking point should finally arrive and people are on the streets stealing whatever they can.
Things will only get worse. As more and more people are born and there is less space to house and feed them. Less resources to give them the TV lifestyle they can see 24/7 onscreen, the more this will happen.
The police are overstretched and dashing around trying to quell one riot after another. Think of how much harder it will be without oil.
The poor and disaffected have been watching people in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Syria facing bullets and tank shells and not flinching. A few midgets in fire-proof suits and batons aren't going to stop this.
Now Birmingham's erupting too.
I wake up to news that Liverpool, Bristol and Nottingham rose up too. What we are seeing has nothing to do with the shooting of a gangster in Tottenham but the redistribution of wealth. From greedy corporations, bankers and politicians to the have-nots. How much does this junk in looted shops actually cost? The same item in a developing country would cost much less in Yuan or Rupees and is made for next to nothing in the Far East. The people have been duped for too long.
