    Here we have the Illuminati card game being played out. The moto of the Illuminati is "out of chaos comes order". This is all pre planned to bring in a New World Order. Go to this site for more information. http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1857.cfm Funny how this has all coincided with the stock market crash!

      fishycraig - 2011-08-09 14:45

      That or it is just a bunch of ignorant, barbaric, uncivilised immigrants acting like a bunch of thugs.

      WATCHMAN - 2011-08-09 14:49

      It looks like it's also white people involved. I also put this down to their liberal ways and there poor discipline in their education system as well!

      Yoni - 2011-08-09 14:52

      Whether they're white or black, the police ought to run them down with Casspirs.

      G.du Plessis - 2011-08-09 15:04

      There are rioters of all races. My brother rang after dodging a white gang in Bromley. He was driving

      Master debat - 2011-08-09 15:12

      Thats what happens when you let too many Nigerians and Paki's to cross your boarders easily. They bite the hand that feeds them. Back home they never rioted because they know England is too soft on them, where as in Nigeria the Gov still stones you to death. Hilbrow, JHB watch out .

      @master debat. a lot of those black kids would be of carribean decent. id also like to point out that this isn't a racial issue. when we had the riots for the queen visiting ireland it was all white kids. bascially it comes down to an issue of the most deprived of society acting like morons, which in the case of london, would largely be the black youths. stop with the racism please.

      Anton - 2011-08-09 15:35

      Watchman, And its also got to do with the chicken eggs getting smaller!!!!!!!

      Master debat - 2011-08-09 15:37

      @ Sean Looney my point is that Britin has built a culture of entitlement just like SA. Most of these black and Asiatic youths are from council homes, are on the gov funding (on the dough) and expect more ! How do you destroy a country that has done so much for you ? It is a shame ! And the white kids you speak of are just chancers, in it for the fun and loot.

      Master debat - 2011-08-09 15:40

      And I am sorry that the truth seems racist to you. There is no other way to sugar coat it. By pointing them out we will shame them and maybe next time they will think twice before they act. Also how about those people whose shops they a destroying ? No one is standing up for them.

      realist - 2011-08-09 16:17

      Valis good to hear that. I dare you to move to sunny south africa for 6 months. After that we will talk again.

      realist - 2011-08-09 16:21

      There are many trolls acting as British citizens paid for by the anc. Caught out, w*nkers.

      Politicallycorrect - 2011-08-09 17:19

      This was bound to happen, because it all boils down to taking God out of the School system and caning their backsides from a young age. Spare the rod you spoil the child. My brother sent his son back here to South Africa so that he could be better educated and disciplined, because he was starting to mix with the wrong crowd.

      G.du Plessis - 2011-08-09 18:38

      @masterdebat. Do you mean the dole? What is the dough? UK is 92.1% caucasian FYI.

      Little Jim - 2011-08-10 04:45

      MURDERS IN THE UK IN 2009 - 750 OUT OF A POPULATION OF 62 MILLION MURDERS IN SOUTH AFRICA IN 2009 - 19 500 OUT OF A POPULATION OF 50 MILLION ONE MAN GETS SHOT IN CROYDON OVER THE LAST FIVE DAYS OF RIOTING AND IN SUNNY SA, OVER 200 PEOPLE WOULD HAVE BEEN MURDERED IN THE SAME TIME!! YOU DO THE SUMS AND TELL ME WHICH COUNTRY IS MORE VIOLENT AND IN THE MIDST OF A LOW LEVEL CIVIL WAR???

      JCTF - 2011-08-10 10:03

      Little Jim... what does that have to do with the article? It's a big story in England because as you so kindly point out, they're so much more organized than we are. 750 deaths a year? Fantastic, and an environment in which these current scenes are big news. It's called a more mature country. If they pretended it didn't matter, they would soon find themselves on par with us, wouldn't they? So I'm not sure what you're shouting about. Nobody asked for comparisons. We have our situation, they have theirs. Comparing them is pointless. Now lets all work together to make South Africa a country where these "small incidents" as you see them are indeed headline news because not much bad happens most of the time. You can stand close by and shout if you like.

      amos - 2011-08-10 13:20

      Most of the comments here seem to either forget or prefer to ignore the fact that the UK rioters are merely mimicing what they learnt from the murderous and theiving bast*rds that run their country. Spare a thought for the millions butchered in Iraq,Afghanistan and now Libya. "Europeans are killers and liers. Best in both - world wide."

  • Sambok - 2011-08-09 15:01

    Now is the time to supply the police with masks and live ammo so that they can restore order without fear of prosecution by the very liberal UK courts. They should declare martial law and kill the bastards.

      Welleducated - 2011-08-09 18:44

      Take them out of AFRICA, but you just can never take AFRICA out of them. Sorry, but it seems to be the truth!!!

  • barry.mcbride - 2011-08-09 15:07

    The first fatal casualty after three days of unrest and/or rioting can only imply a rather serene conflict!

      Martin du Plessis - 2011-08-09 15:21

      Or the ppl involved can't aim worth s*ht

      barry.mcbride - 2011-08-09 15:23

      that's embellished by the frenetic media!

  • Master debat - 2011-08-09 15:16

    We are also next, half of north Africa is here, and so too Asians and Indians fighting for the same scraps as our poor black brothers. Xenophobia extreme here we come !

      Zee - 2011-08-10 07:38

      For all the tripe you are spewing I'll bet it was a bunch of teenage hooligan whities.

  • Proefleser - 2011-08-09 15:37

    By closing their eyes to the developing slums the British have brought this upon themselves, I'm afraid. Poverty and unemployment are a bomb waiting to explode.

      realist - 2011-08-09 16:24

      European immigration laws suck. These are being dealt with as we speak. People are going to be deported. These immigrants are a selfish bunch.

      JR - 2011-08-10 07:32

      And allowing too many sub-continent, north africans and middle eastern people into the country is not helping.

      john_jones - 2011-08-10 07:39

      Proefleser. NOTHING could be further from the truth. These are not poor people rioting. There are NO poor people in the UK --- not poor like in the poor in SA or Romania or Nepal. These are all benefit wankers , too lazy to work. The riots are simply an opportunity to 'get' something that they have not worked for.

      The BNP will win more votes for this. Nick Griffin for PM.

  • darkwing - 2011-08-09 15:42

    The world is overpopulated and that is why these types of incidents will increase. We'll see wars started over resources, not ideology. In fact, the first water wars have already occurred.

  • Mark N - 2011-08-09 16:14

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXcI-NL3Tro I live in London... have done for nearly 6 years now. Its the youth that are the problem! Colour isnt the issue, just a bunch of lawless kids who think this is 'cool'!

  • realist - 2011-08-09 16:18

    Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, these are immigrant thugs. Deport them. The days of the liberals are numbered.

      WillowI - 2011-08-09 17:52

      Say it again - the day of the liberal is VERY NUMBERED ! I predict that this time the conservatives who's blood was spilt to create the boundaries and laws within which these liberals now flourish are this time going to take a back seat. We will see whether these liberals have the balls and backbone to take the punishment or how far they will run. After that the conservatives can once again restore proper order in society. It has already started all over the western world - mark my words.

      WillowI - 2011-08-09 18:00

      just an afterthought - the liberals in England have probably already booked their flights to Australia.

  • Muffyforu - 2011-08-09 21:33

    Welleducated - who the f*ck is them? Watch the footage and you will see, as others point out, there are all races involved. It just shows that a yobo is a yobo no matter waht the color of their skin. I presume you live in South Africa in that cas eif your are so ashamed of being african then f8ck off and leave

  • JR - 2011-08-10 07:29

    When are the British police going to stop acting like Bobbies and realise that these rioters originate from places where asking them politely not to riot is not going to work. These people only respect it it if you kick their A@@ and kick it hard. Also find out how many of these rioters are immigrants and ilegal ones at that. Deport them.

      amos - 2011-08-10 13:34

      Is it not a fact that the UK rioters are merely mimicing what they learnt from the murderous and theiving bast*rds that run their country. The British army is part of the terrorists that are in the killing fields of Iraq,Afgnanistan and now Libya. I repeat another fact :- "Europeans are killers and liers. Best in both - world wide." Ref: North & South America, Africa, Mid-East & Asia the proof is glaring.

  • Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-10 07:41

    Britain is a country of immigrants, the Celts from Spain, Anglo Saxon invaders from Germany, the Romans from Italy and the Middle East, the Vikings from Norway who farmed along the east coast, the Normans who invaded from France and are the ancestors of Britain's aristocracy. Even the revered St George is an immigrant, a dark skinned Palestinian who fought for the Roman Empire against the British.
