    Yes this is what happens when you build a unsustainable welfare state and pay for it all with borrowed money. Sure its all good until there's a downturn and suddenly you can't afford to hand out the free stuff! Naturally the entitlement class.will rebel and deman the rich pay for their stuff so they shouldn't have to... and then they turn violent. Will we see a democratic uprising in GB? Will Obama enforce a no fly zone to protect his fellow radicals? Will these leftists be able to build a Utopian society of pub goers?

      Oh get a grip Lady Love, more than 200 arrests out of 250,000 demonstrators!

      Try for once to get your facts right, the government has slashed public spending and cut jobs whilst giving tax breaks for the rich, that's their idea of us all being in this together. It's about cutting the numbers of police on the streets, cutting pensions for the poor whilst giving tax breaks to the rich.

      And it wasn't caused by socialism, it was caused by the bankers and the US sub-prime market.

      Try this for a more balanced view http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12864353 it's not Murdoch though!

      Well what's your problem Ann Cee? 202 arrests out of quarter of a million people, in case you can't count, that's 249,798 who didn't get arrested.

      Socialist radicals? By which you mean students and trade unions? Do I really need to go into an explanation as to why they are not radical?  Or perhaps you mean the small group.of anarchists- who are ultimately known for being utterlu, totally and completely left wing...teehee.
      as for tearing london apart...pffft. I haven't seen the news yet today and u actually had me going that something awful had happened...
      ...will there be revolution in britain? I severly doubt it. The beauty of living in a democracy is that our government aren't able to bomb us or claim absolute power over what we do, say and think.

        But but, Ann Cee posted a photograph of one person kicking in a window surrounded by lots of other people totally ignoring him. How can you not see that London is being destroyed by socialist radicals?
