2011-08-08 18:26

London - Youths hurled missiles at police in east London on Monday, as fears grew of a third night of violence in the British capital.

Protesters hurled rubbish bins and supermarket trolleys at officers and police with riot shields responded by charging them as they tried to seal off an area around Hackney Central station, live television showed.

Some rioters broke into shops, apparently to find objects to throw at police lines. The BBC said the incident broke out after police stopped and searched a man.

    People going to watch the Olympiques in 11 months time need to wear bullet proof vests and helmets to avoid head injury and sturb wounds. Stay away from any place 10km away from London as it might not be safe.

    Best news all week. The Pommies deserve a good taste of what we had in the 80ties. Maybe now they will understand!

      Obama Bin Laden - 2011-08-08 19:17

      We should send some real looters over there to show them how it's done

      Lee - 2011-08-08 19:26

      Doublepost to true. I'm British and it's been brewing for a while. All it does is send voters to the right. UKIP will lap them up. We can change our government. The next one will deal with this virus on our shore. Whats your going to do?

      Obama Bin Laden - 2011-08-08 19:35

      @Lee: that virus is there to stay and multiply. You think Labour is going to do anything about that? Keep dreaming my son.

      Lee - 2011-08-08 19:54

      You might want to keep up with British Politics. Labour lost the last election. Labour is the reason our shores have been flooded with immigrants. Now we have Con-Dem equally as useless and promised a referendon on the EURO. 1 of many lies. That sums up the big 3 parties. Liberals and labour will die a death they already are. It's time for UKIP to step forward. Even the BNP will be rubbing it's hands with glee, Just like many white South Africans, there are many Brits with there heads in the sand. Wakey wakey.

      Obama Bin Laden - 2011-08-08 20:09

      @Lee: You said the next government will deal with this virus and that's why I mentioned Labour because they are the only alternative option to the coalition. The UKIP and BNP? You can't be serious? That's lunatic fringe stuff

  • sipholess - 2011-08-08 18:59

    Switch sky news on, surprise surprise...... darkies looting and burning their own neighbourhoods. Say no more.

      Thandi - 2011-08-08 19:23

      Same old, same old - doesn't change when you let them out of Africa.

      christine - 2011-08-08 19:28

      there is no doubt that england will pay the price for there immigration policies--they are paying already--just as in sa

      KalliMay - 2011-08-09 09:43

      Are we watching different things? Because as soon as I turned on the news I saw heaps of white boys in the riots. No news stations have really been reporting the riots as race based. Until I saw these comments I didn't even think of that.

  • Gustav - 2011-08-08 19:24

    love it. All the South Africans went there for peace and now theres more violence than in South Africa. Ha ha

      Ldn_saffa - 2011-08-08 19:34

      difference is........ the UK have a police force that ACTUALLY respond.

      BOFFINBOB - 2011-08-08 19:39

      Ldn_saffa. LOL. S'true ! Well trained & efficient too !

      Obama Bin Laden - 2011-08-08 19:41

      Ldn_Saffa: looks like their response has worked wonders so far. long may it continue

      Neil Bell - 2011-08-08 19:49

      Gustav you idiot,the people running around london are kids and people from the council housing estates.They have nothing better to do.Looting and property destruction does not equate to murder and rape.Been in the UK for 5 years and this is nothing compared to the crap in South Africa.

      sipholess - 2011-08-08 19:52

      I aint a pommy fan but now I know you dont travel or get out very much Gustav. You are braindead for compairing South Africa's crime rate with that of Britain's.

      Lee - 2011-08-08 19:58

      No one is being murdered Gustav. And on your next visit to london, See how many whites live in the capital. It's the Capital of everybody elses country.

      Doublepost - 2011-08-08 23:24

      Gustav fails to realise that the people that cause the crime here are from the same group that are causing the riots in London. London ain't a British city no more! Labour's Immigration fiasco is coming home to roost!

  • Sege - 2011-08-08 20:34

    You know what, some of you guys on this forum just sit your lazy asses down and blame your misfortunes on other people. Africa this, Malema that. If Africa is such a big problem for you why don't you just pack your bags and leave. It is sickening to read some of the comments on this website. Some of you are so racist it is out of this world. And besides why don't you just worry about problems in your own country rather than in the UK. For your information not all the rioters are african refugees. The UK is not like here, there is no black or white areas. People are divided based on their social and economic standards. Get a life guys and stop being so racist. Life is so short, enjoy it

      Muffyforu - 2011-08-08 20:47

      Sege - good comment, just waht i meant to say but these pricks and their comments make me so angry i get carried away, well done

  • Muffyforu - 2011-08-08 20:34

    Lee - what about the vast majority of imaagrants who come in and do the jobs you lazy ass Pommies and to lazy to do. After living in London for 8n years i saw first hand how the immagrants are treated even though the vast majority are good , tax paying hard working individuals, which is more than can be said for the yobo's living in the council estates. so please its you who has to wake up!! Its funny how england etc saw fit to invade other countries, steal there resources during colonial times. The wheel turns and Karma is a b*tch. Boffinbob, Obama ect where do you idiots live? critisize africans but still want to life here. Hypocritical tossers

      sipholess - 2011-08-08 20:59

      @ Muffyforu And you were in the UK for...........British pounds! Why? The SA rand not good enough ! You hypocritical arsewipe !!!!!

      Obama Bin Laden - 2011-08-08 21:23

      @Muffyforu - tell you what muffy, I'll move back to europe if all your bruddas from the around the world move back to africa. deal?

      Master debat - 2011-08-09 00:02

      @Obama Bin Laden that is the deal of the century ! Now get the f**k out !

  • Sege - 2011-08-08 20:37

    And besides the rioters in Greece were not Africans

  • Muffyforu - 2011-08-08 21:07

    Sipholes - the only reason the UK has a strong Economy and currency is because they stole resources from other countries during colonialization. Its certainly not by hard work, those f8ckers cant even pick up a brick before complaining or needing a break. Yes i did go to earn pounds and steal back just my little bit from the pommies

  • cyber_writer - 2011-08-08 22:33

    ONE man got shot by the police in Tottenham, a man who apparently according to certain reports was a gangster and drug dealer, and if this IS true, was he getting up to illegal activities when he got shot? Fair enough we don't know the true story, so best not to jump to conclusions, but google him and see some of the photos of him that come up and he's certainly doesn't look like the most savoury of characters if one judges at least partly by looks/demeanour, but make up your own minds.......... SO the shooting of one man and the frustrations of those at bottom end of the economic social ladder sparked off the riots, - yet did anyone die in those riots?? And on the other hand, 50 - 80 people in this country STILL get MURDERED EVERY day and South Africans still find it fit to criticize and make fun of another country's problems.
