    To put it bluntly, they're happy enough using water-cannons, rubber bullets, tear gas and the like in Belfast, but as soon as it comes to London it suddenly becomes "excessive" and the like.
    It's fucking stupid - it's the UNITED kingdom, why police different areas in different fashions?
    Belfast rioters have an awkward history of bringing out firearms and Improvised explosives.

    Dear brothers from UK,

    We are unable to help since our own country is in shambles. Best of luck with your problems.

    Northern Ireland has very, very, very different issues to Britain. They still relatively often have bomb attempts and police shootings, the police there have to have guns

    I'm in Bournemouth, like 95 miles away from all the shit.

    Sweet.

    Edited:

    It's awful that people's homes are getting destroyed though. Fuckin' chavs.
    If Bournemouth's youth decide to start rioting then the UK really is fucked

    You use lethal force against lethal force, not against people setting fires.

    If you are watching BBC news, try and watch BBC London. They are doing top notch coverage of it (as they usually do of anything, BBC London are awesome).

    I hope these people get some form of compensation, I know around here during the G20 riots last year the federal government said they'd set up a fund and insurance companies said they wouldn't cover damages, and then later the government tried to tell people they wouldn't cover them either.

    I'm all for stopping these rioters, but "vermin" is completely inappropriate.

    These people will need the money if the rioters torch their houses.

    Yes, but insurance companies are notorious for being assholes, and may try to deny the claims.

    It's not as tense than it used to be, and I'm more saying "use more force on this one" as opposed to "use less force in Northern Ireland". (though I do support less force in Northern Ireland, especially from what my mum's told me about the past)

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/tv/bbc_...ndon/watchlive in theory it should cut to the local news at half past 10.
    I am not sure though, I get BBC London normally so I get it through my TV tuner.

    What the hell you'd expect such shit to happen in poorer countries like mine, not in countries such as Great Britain.
    Only fights that happen here are between football fans, or between football fans and cops.

    Croydon pub landlord Alan McCabe tells the BBC he is furious about the fires raging in Croydon.

    "I have never seen such a disregard for human life. I hope they rot in hell.

    "The grief they have caused people, the fear they have put in people's hearts, decent people who have done nothing to anyone."
