So with all this talk about M15 expecting trouble this year, government troops being asked whether they would open fire on UK citizens, and the masses generally more informed than ever about the mishandling of the banks and economy by the government, I must ask the very real question: Is there a chance that there could be a genuine outbreak of mass civil disobedience this year? I'm not talking about the extremists, hippies, students, or the usual rent a mob anarchists. I'm talking about the members of society who would normally steer clear of protests getting involved-the British tax paying middle classes. Imagine the situation. A march is finally organised to protest the governments mishandling of the banking crisis. It seems the whole country has come to a standstill, EVERYONE is heading to the city for this one. (Including many off duty members of the Army, such as many people who would be reading this). The largest economic crisis in history has produced the largest protest the country has ever seen. Tensions are high, both with the protesters and the police. It is a powderkeg waiting to explode. What has originally started as an act of protest begins to turn into an expression of rage. Some fireworks and rocks are hurled by protesters, and the mob mentality takes over. It kicks off big time. Opportunist troublemakers and chavs quickly join in. Synchronised marches in other cities quickly turn ugly too. The police baton charge, which many perceive to be heavy handed. Some protesters decide to have a go at the police. Running battles in the street. Cars are torched, looting breaks out, live rounds possibly put down..... Not outside the realms of possibility, I think it's fair to say. It's unprecedented that so many working people have felt so angry and frustrated, and trust in the government at the moment is non existant. What do you think folks? Could the unthinkeable really happen?
