London Riots caused by people doing that thing I don’t like

We’ve discussed that thing I don’t like many times here, and had some fairly vigorous debates about it.

But the riots in London over the past week prove that I was right.


This is what happens when a country accepts that thing I don’t like.

It was impossible to watch the outbreak of lawlessness, of both the poor and middle class looting shops, and not think how it could all have been avoided if people had listened to me and stopped doing that thing I don’t like.

It’s just common sense. I’ve raised my children knowing right from wrong, and they have never done that thing I don’t like. And they are now some of the most well-adjusted, decent young adults you can ever hope to meet. They would never rob an injured person or smash a shop window. Because in our family, there was none of that thing I don’t like.

You can’t have failed to notice how that thing I don’t like was getting more prevalent in the years leading up to the riots. More and more of the people from the social groups connected with the violence were brought up in an environment where the importance of doing what I insisted was necessary was no longer emphasised. Where were these young people to learn the importance of society, of community, of respect for their fellow citizens, if this behaviour was accepted? Not just accepted, but encouraged.

And we know by whom. Encouraged by the very people who disagree with me.

Well, they should be hanging their heads in shame, now. It is obvious that their prescription for the UK, which the country has been slavishly following against my advice, is responsible for the predicament in which the English now find themselves.

Look at the result. Buildings set on fire. Property stolen. Lives ruined.

And it all could have been avoided if they’d listened to me. If they’d stopped doing that thing I don’t like.

Well, we here in Australia have a chance to avoid going down the English path. Our country has not yet sunk so low that we’ve had riots here.

But if we don’t heed the warnings, if we don’t learn from the mistakes of our cousins in the UK, then it is inevitable.

Please, I beg of you. Save our country by doing the things I have long argued we should do and banning the thing I don’t like that has clearly caused all this destruction.

Let’s make sure this never happens again.

    Finally some acknowledgement that the carbon tax is to blame.

  2. Spoken like a true whingeing pom.

  3. Nm I know. Why did take so long for people to see?

  4. Hang on guys, i thought gay marriage was to blame?

  5. narcoticmusing

    No, no Duncan… climate tax causes people to want to gay marry sweet christians which results in riots in the UK.

  6. Yeah ultimately its the Carbon tax that caused these riots, and led to these riots cauing the Queensland floods.

    I thought that it was all about poverty and the growing divide between rich and poor……oh hang on….that’s what the left (in general) has been claiming. Oh well, whilst those convicted are looking for non-council places to live, they will be too busy to riot.

  8. “Oh well, whilst those convicted are looking for non-council places to live, they will be too busy to riot”

    To be serious a moment, look at the practicalities of this for a minute.

    These people won’t be busy looking for non council housing, because they don’t have any money…that’s why they were in council housing in the first place. In any case, who will accept an unemployed criminal as a tenant?

    This plan would condemn a lot of people (including children) to sleeping rough.

    Once they are no longer cluttering up public housing, and have had their welfare cut, they will still need money to live. Where do you think they will get it?

    “they will be too busy to riot”

    I so hope you are joking BJ.

    Because if you think thousand of homeless thugs, who robbed and thieved when they DIDN’T need to will be “too busy” to rob and thieve when they have no other choice, you’re dreaming.

    This is a recipe for a massive crime wave, further resentment, an even poorer underclass, and guarantees further rioting.

  9. btw Jeremy, a very funny post.

  10. If you’re in the private prison industry Duncan its called a massive business opportunity.

  11. narcoticmusing

    See Duncan, there is always a bright side. Thank you Jules for pointing out how this can be good for the economy.
    ;)

  12. No, no Duncan… climate tax causes people to want to gay marry sweet christians which results in riots in the UK.

    And it allows people to gay-marry their dogs, or their trees, or their dolphins.

    I thought the culprit was urban youths getting charged with “WWB” – but I could be reading too much into it

    It’s global warming – all that heat and the stench of dead polar bears freaks out the ferals.

  14. narcoticmusing

    Good point SB – surely those stupid pandas that evolution forgot about are having an impact too.

  15. narcoticmusing

    Although we’ve clearly all missed the most obvious reason:

    These people were simply reverse vampires revolting against the oppressive night (possibly inconjuction with the saucer people and/or the Rand corporation).
