Riots are a product of the great divide

Concerning the riots, the looting that’s been going on around the country this last week and the causes of it.

It has nothing to do with the cuts we are all having to suffer and more to with people such as MPs on huge salaries fiddling their expenses and getting off scot free; high ranking police officers having to resign on alleged corruption charges; highly paid footballers who think they are above the law with their super injunctions; chief executives of councils and NHS hospitals on obscene salaries; local councillors who pocket every penny they can from public money but can’t fill in a timesheet.

This is where the problems lie, in this great divide between the general public and the authorities.
