    We watched the Arab revolutions burn and crash because of the poverty and dictatorship factors. In Europe after Spain led the "indignants" movement, Italy just stepped on the accelerator of violence by attacking the symbols of the austerity, of the authority with plastic charges. I guess people reached their point of no return. Your opinion on the subject?

    Well, I'm in Britain, and things are still fine here. We have the 'Occupy St. Pauls' Movement, but they're mostly middle class hippies. They don't really represent the downtrodden majority. I doubt whether we'll go as far as the Arab states or Spain, Italy. We've got Wimbledon coming up and we can't have that interrupted, can we? big_smile

        Of course, I'd forgotten about those; can't have the Queen's big weekend spoilt by a revolt lol! As for Wimbledon, I was thinking more of the strawberry's and cream than the Tennis big_smile

    I suppose a few more people might write to their MP? And as Mr Pickles and Mr Duncan-Smth say, all we have to do is work harder!

      Ah! The classic British reaction to anger. I'm going to write a letter, and it WILL BE A FORMAL LETTER OF COMPLAINT! Done a few of those in my time big_smile

        I dare say the editors of the Times and Telegraph will be prepared!
