France has always been militant, our country is a totally different proposition.

They really think standing outside in the cold and rain shouting angrily is suddenly going to revoke the result of the general election and force Boris out of Downing street?

Because god forbid people unhappy with their government do something about it. We can't risk disturbing my evening **** with all those rioters outside, no sir. Best to let the government do what it wants.

Do something about it means to campagin against the government during an election period and persuade people to vote for the alternative (Labour). That does not extend to having a little riot a few days after the G.E, that only damages the other side and makes you look bad.

government was voted in by the majority of the public, therefore the ones rioting would be immature adults who seem to have difficulty accepting a loss and moving on. there's no need to have a fit on the streets just because the party you voted for didn't win, there's social media for that nonsense.

Right, so when I'm busy getting my **** kicked in by a bunch of tories for being who I am, I should remind myself to Vote! in 4 years. Good advice, that. Because we all saw how well that turned out this time.

You mean the party that lied in 88% of their ads? I'll happily riot against the human scum that proposed and passed Section 28.

If you are being pysically assulted for whatever reason you should go to the police. rioting does not solve that.

For one it does nothing to help your cause, it will only make people angry at you. Say somebody smashed in the window of your business or house because they don't like the result of the General Election, you have every right to be peeved at that person. Rioting can destroy people's livlihoods, for little matieral gain. Not to mention the police will clamp down fairy hard.

Nobody said rioting's for material gain. It's for political change. And, yes, you're right. It can damage livelihoods, if it isn't properly organized. If you've just got a group of people bricking whichever buildings they can, that isn't direct action, that's chavs being ********s.

No... you will be met by men on horseback. It will achieve nothing and I ride horses, well enough for riot control... don't put poor horsey through it all.

Why riot? If you're unhappy about the results of the election blame the masses for not agreeing with you.
