This is not a protest against government. It’s a protest in favour of government. More government – much more. More benefits, more handouts, more ‘services’, provided by the government for ‘free’. And it is free, because people and businesses who work and pay tax foot the bill. By looting businesses and stealing from them, they are simply cutting out the middle-man of the benefits office. Because the government has taken the first tentative steps towards removing the warm, milky teat of the state in the form of spending cuts, they don’t like it. So they are simply taking their freebies by force. It is likely their violence will be rewarded with more ‘benefits’, and ‘community outreach’. And so it will go on.

via The Commentator – London rioters are the pampered children of the welfare state.

Some will say the rioters are anarchists, which strictly speaking means people who believe in no government (or very small government) (although not many people seem to know that, including the London police), not yobs who shoot people in cars, or steal from injured people’s backpacks.
