It's soft touch Britain all over.
Look at the way yobs - young, (think even teens for christ's sake) old, lads, girls - can swear, ffin and blinding at policemen in any town center on any Friday night across the country...it's no surprise.
Total breakdown in family relations. Parental control and well, parenting, out of the window.
It's been about 10 years or maybe 20 years since this underclass really beagan to show signs of emerging - I'm not talking about the old school racial discontent, the Broadwater farm and Brixton stuff, I mean this cross ethnic/racial yobbery...and still it seems the government/police have failed to tackle the general problem.
It's not even about these last two nights. The ones who are really causing the problem - and there are lots of them - are the kind that will beat your girlfriend shitless on a Friday night and maybe stab you in the gut for good measure.
It's funny. I still hear voices saying that the youth/gang problem across the UK is exaggerated. I don't know what parts of the country these people live in. In towns and cities across the UK, you can cut the tension with a knife.
Two words for the police. Rubber bullets.
