    Make some more theads about this, I dare you. At least this one doesn't have a newspaper link for once I suppose.

    Seriously, do you do anything else in your life apart from trolling forums?
  2. You're ****ing loving this aren't you, you throbber.

    Another thing, why the **** can't you keep this kind of crap to the countless other threads on the topic. Why start another one?
  4. None of them. If you feel that you can support your points (any or all of them) then let's hear it.

  6. Exactly, none of them.

    Or even, a little bit of all of them ... except the "big number of illegal immigrants", as the vast majority of the non-white participants will be the descendants of people who emigrated to the UK legally, well before I was born. Which was a long time ago.

    Plus (and mainly) sheer opportunistic greed.

  7. There is no legitimate reason for the "riots". They are simply an excuse for thieving little scrotes and possibly opportunistic and organised "real" criminals.

  8. Well, propose your own explanation, your cause that is the most relevant.
  9. Re-read my post.
  10. None of above.

    The reason for riots was clearly demonstrated on BBC News today. One of the first scrotes to face the full might of the UK Justice system was sentenced after being caught looting. The 19 year old student, caught in the act with the stolen property was hammered with a massive penalty of a days prison. He was released immediately having been in custody since he was caught. Ooooh that will teach him!

    So the clear reason for looting - the scum have no fear of the consequences.

  11. Not the above at all!

    Greed - they want something (else in life),for free

    Power - they resent not being able to do what they want when they want, and will test what they can and cannot get away with

    Excitement - there is no excitement left in ordinary things like taking on an apprenticeship, learning more etc. They must have immediate gratification

    To feel part of agroup -this they cannot do in ordinary ways because they are disabled people, due to 1,2 and 3 above, so they leap at a chance to be seen as "belonging" to something

  12. Oh come on please start locking these threads and lets get back to slagging of other things.

    Simple they want a new mobile phone or 50" TV no other reason!
  13. Yes, I see that you think that there are too many causes and it is hard to outline the main one.

    But let's look at this point of view.

    These riots were about race. Why ignore the fact? – Telegraph Blogs

    Frankly speaking, my option 'illegal immigrants' is merely an euphemism to denote 'race related problems in the society'.
