The ferals do not consent to being policed: Andrew Bolt
Police Flee Rioters in London
Theresa May, the UK Home Secretary, espoused the British philosophy of failure:
“The way we police in Britain is not through use of water cannon. The way we police in Britain is through consent of communities.”
Soft policing has failed Britain
POLICE let the UK down. They were unable to stop the riots from spreading. Law and order is not about political correctness, it is about stamping out crime.
WHAT we’re seeing in London, as looters and rioters run amok and impotent police stand around watching, is the problem of politically correct policing writ large. Â It is the triumph of a managerial, bureaucratic process-driven style of policing hatched in the rarefied confines of academia rather than on the harsh reality of the streets.
Every now and then the two meet and you get bloody anarchy. No prizes for guessing who comes off second best. Â Â “It’s absolute bedlam on the street,” one resident of Clapham, interviewed on the BBC, said of Tuesday, the fourth night of rioting. Â “People have been openly looting for an hour, two hours, and the police have been ineffectual. They’ve done nothing.” (Herald Sun has more)
THE riots in London and elsewhere in Britain are a backhanded tribute to the long-term intellectual torpor, moral cowardice, incompetence and careerist opportunism of the British political and intellectual class.
They have somehow managed not to notice what has long been apparent to anyone who has taken a short walk with his eyes open down any frequented British street: that a considerable proportion of the country’s young population (a proportion that is declining) is ugly, aggressive, vicious, badly educated, uncouth and criminally inclined.
Unfortunately, while it is totally lacking in self-respect, it is full of self-esteem: that is to say, it believes itself entitled to a high standard of living, and other things, without any effort on its own part.
Consider for a moment the following: although youth unemployment in Britain is very high, that is to say about 20 per cent of those aged under 25, the country has had to import young foreign labour for a long time, even for unskilled work in the service sector.
The reasons for this seeming paradox are obvious to anyone who knows young Britons as I do.
No sensible employer in a service industry would choose a young Briton if he could have a young Pole; the young Pole is not only likely to have a good work ethic and refined manners, he is likely to be able to add up andâ€”most humiliating of allâ€”to speak better English than the Briton, at least if by that we mean the standard variety of the language.
…while millions are fighting for democracy and a better life in the Arab Spring revolutions, the little bastards on the rampage in England seem to be only interested in getting the latest iPhone or a LCD TV.
The secular mind may rejoice at the post-religious moment of Europe, and especially of Britain. But an unemployed youth, with no tradition and no real education, with enough money more or less but not many prospects, with no source of moral authority and no help in understanding any basis for right and wrong, nothing to control an impulse, and knowing nothing of British history except that it was shameful and sexist and racistâ€”how exactly does this youth become integrated and whole, and indeed happy?
GIRL 1: It’s the government’s fault.
Girl 2: I know . . .
Girl 1: I dunno . . .
Girl 2: Conservatives!
Girl 1: Yeah, whatever who it isâ€”I dunno.
Girl 2: It’s not even a riotâ€”it’s showing the people we can do what we want.
Girl 1: Yeah, that’s what it’s all aboutâ€”showing the police we can do what we want, and now we have.
Reporter: So do you reckon it will go on tonight?
Girl 2: Yeah hopefully, I want a few more things!
Girl 1: Innit?
