What's the world coming to? All this rioting and looting of late..people killed, property and all manner of stuff torched? Shameful and disgusting behaviour.
Dearie me. Some people are saying it's because these 'people' are poor and that's why they do such things.
When we were young we had hardly anything. Parents worked.....shitty hours, shitty jobs....and shitty jobs made them ill...but they carried on. There were no benefits. We just had the bare minimum at home.... furniture, clothes - no designer stuff..everything was either hand made or hand-me-downs, food was basic. Def no holidays...but we didn't go out and kick the shit out of our communities. I think we were lucky. We were taught morals and respect...and that there were always consequences for our actions..be they negative or the other! Nobody was ever 'off their face' through drugs or alcohol...
A young woman who was interviewed on the tv (and had had her little shop trashed) described the louts as 'feral rats'. Totally correct but a bit insulting, I fear, to the little, brown furry rodent population to be categorised with that lot!!
