An excellent statement from the Chairman this morning in relation to the criminal blitzing of N17 by opportunist scum yesterday. The full message is on the official site of course but the jist is that practical measures need to be engaged to organise a physical clean up of the area and the regeneration plans are core to the well being of not only businesses but private citizens who live locally.
On yesterday’s blog we trod a tricky path where with I think one exception I didn’t censor the views of those that felt that this wasn’t a multicultural riot and that specifically only one or two ethnic types were to blame. Despite there being numerous images available of whitey, shoulder to shoulder with criminals of all creeds.
I’d like to thank the bulk of the rest of that blog’s contributors who understood what was happening and didn’t brand me a racist cohort or the entire blog a platform for neo Nazis. As I have commented before, I’d have the BNP on TV every night at 9pm until every whitey in the country had watched enough to understand these people are actually deranged.
You don’t do away with things by hiding them away. I’m a fine one to talk, but it’s very much like going to the dentist. Horrible little cavities don’t go away on their own, you ignore them they rot and eventually the entire tooth is lost.
What has emerged in the aftermath of all this is that London, if not Britain is in trouble. Too many people have slipped through society’s net. Some appear to have been forcibly squeezed through it. People have to understand that this isn’t because they are of any particular ethnicity, this is to do with how they live.
It’s very easy to say, ‘Society is going to the dogs’ and turn the page of your newspaper looking for another article that points out who to blame but these kids aren’t just in trouble, they’re doomed. We need to actively save the next generation from following this current lot of hopeless losers and habitual petty criminals over the same abyss.
Here’s a picture from Twitter of a looter with his spoils. It looks a legitimate enough snap to me. I’d like you to just look what he has spread upon his table and then at the guy’s face for a minute. He’s genuinely happy. Like a child on Christmas morning. You could find that expression on any of a hundred thousand Facebook Albums; as one of a group having a few drinks at a party, as a guy stood in front of the Eiffel Tower on his holidays. He’s happy.
How desperate is this poor gits life that charging into a shop in darkness with the bells peeling and flames raging grabbing ‘stuff’ in the half light makes him happy? He’s amassed a few DVDs or computer games there, some fragrance, a couple of things to help him make Skype calls and a barrel of that stuff that body builders eat. Not sure what’s in the yellow tubs, it might be hair wax at a guess.
This chap is actually in trouble and I’m not talking about having his boat race on my website.
He’s in trouble because black, white, yellow or purple people like him are growing in number because society has decided to actively ignore them. Government after government has ignored them. The schools can’t cope because they are underfunded and outdated. Did anyone watch Jamie Oliver’s Dream School? I know, I know, he’s a lisping gooner mockney but we mustn’t descrimnate.
Kids like the kids on that show are being groomed by a society that hasn’t so much failed them as totally disregarded them. I honestly wonder if someone in a smoke filled room at Number 1o doesn’t explain to every new PM that, ‘well who do you think is going to serve the fast food? We can’t give everyone a leg up, the country would fall to it’s knees, old boy.’
I came into possession very early this morning of a document produced by the Met last night in relation to this situation. Just in case anyone reading thinks this is a storm particular to the N17 tea cup. Here are some extracts as I’ve been asked not to link to the page itself.
Police are tonight responding to copycat criminal activity across London and are deploying officers to tackle it.
There has been looting in a number of boroughs in north, east and south London by small and mobile groups. Groups of youths continue to attack police officers and a number of police vehicles have been damaged.
Three officers have been taken to hospital after being hit by a fast moving vehicle at approx 00:45hrs. The officers were in the process of making arrests in Chingford Mount, Waltham Forest, in connection with youths looting a shop. Two officers are believed to have superficial injuries and the other has an injury to his knee.
Earlier tonight in Walthamstow Central more than 30 youths, many in masks, vandalised and looted a number shops including BHS. Officers attended the area and the situation is currently under control. Groups of youths are continuing to target shops in Waltham Forest and officers are on scene.
In Brixton there has been disorder and looting. LFB are dealing with a fire at Footlocker on Brixton High Road.
Rival gangs attended Kings College Hospital after two victims of minor stabbings were admitted resulting in a fight. The hospital has brought in additional security for the remainder of the night and officers remain on scene dealing with the initial stabbings.
In Enfield Town Centre and surrounding areas the disorder has been contained. Resources are in the area and the High Street remains cordoned off to contain the disorder.
Approximately 50 youths congregated in Oxford Circus. Officers attended the area and the situation is currently under control.
In Islington there were reports of a group causing a disturbance and a police vehicle windscreen was smashed.
A Tesco store in Ponders End was vandalised and items were stolen.
So look at the photo of the looter and don’t just say ‘he’s black’, that’s as useful as pointing out he’s wearing a green t shirt. You’re not looking properly. Look at the happiness. His life is so hopeless that his haul of distempered rubbish has actually made him happy.
If you care enough to berate him could I ask that you also care enough to ask the next fawning politician who knocks on your door to explain just how they are going to make kids like the boy in the photo as happy because he just had a good day at work. As happy because he got a pay rise. As happy because he could afford to take his Aunty up West to buy a new pair of glasses on his day off.
And that’s why I wrote this. To commend THFC as a large employer in the war zone for wanting to try at least to make a difference. Your job dear reader is not bitch about colour but bitch about why the schools are so bad, why the housing so meager.You’re right to be angry, just make sure you focus it on the right people, eh?
