Les Quartre Saisons 11.
It’s a dreadful situation in England, now hundreds are in court, all those who got swept up in the riots.
I see the riots as an expression of absolute hopelessness of people who feel totally disenfranchised.
They have been told daily in the newspapers, radio, TV that their lives will get even worse after the cuts.
Many have nothing to look forward to but a life on benefits with no perspectives for a better future for them or their children.
Then there is also the daily news of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and atrocities such as Syria murdering its citizens.
And the distressing pictures from Libya, Bahrain, Tunesia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Egypt have also had a huge effect on people.
A shame no one has the political courage to say, we are responsible for what happened, now let’s see how we can resolve this and empower people.
They should invest in education as a priority; and restore paying money to encourage kids to remain at school from age 16 to 18.
Instead there have been calls for water cannon, teargas and rubber bullets by David Cameron the Prime Minister and other politicians.
These are calls for violence to resolve violence which surely can never work; it also shows that the Conservatives despite describing society as not just broken but sick have no interest in a strong healthy society.
