    They don't need to daub it on war memorials, they can daub it on the front page of the tabloids and have it glaring down from the shelves of every corner shop in the land.

    Just because the Conservative outcry would take a more "establishment" form doesn't mean it would be any less insulting, offensive, idiotic or tribalist.
    When was the last insulting, offensive and idiotic Conservative outcry against a Labour win?

    Can you really not see my point about the conduct of the tabloids or are you just being disingenuous to win the argument?

    I wonder if election results will spark off more unrest from East Londoners. We can enjoy watching them trash their neighbourhood again...

    I wonder what they would say then if a group like the EDL went on a protest against immigration, smashing up immigrants businesses, to show how passionately they felt about the issue and to force the government to take notice.
    This. Any time an EDL, Britain First or even UKIP event takes place, no matter if it's violent or peaceful, there is outcry that they shouldn't be allowed and the police should ban them.

    While I don't agree with the extreme right or the anarchists from yesterday, protests work in both ways. They have to pick one.

    Part of this is that the majority of people voted against the Tories and their cuts, but because of the broken system they have almost no representation in government.

    They are idiots looking for a bit of fun. Ignore them. They are just fools who think that communism is actually desirable.
