Riots: the only solution…

Looking at the news feeds during my last evening in rainy Copenhagen, I see that the Leader of the Opposition, Ed Milliband, has weighed in with an armful of brand new platitudes he obviously acquired during the riots, including a dig at so-called “academic” studies into the causes of violent disorder.

I think this is a big mistake. A serious academic study would undoubtedly reveal a deep sociological  connection between mob violence of the type recently experienced in England and the soccer hooliganism of the 70s and 80s.  The pioneering research discussed in the following news clip offers a radical suggestion for solving the problem of youth violence.

  1. Was wondering how long it would take before the goolly sketch was mentioned. There is clearly a lack of moral fibre in the young today. If they had listened to Our Lord John Cleese and read the Good Bok, we would be in a better place.
    Palin 3:12,
    And he said unto his disciples : “It is an ex-parrot”
    And they did reply:”It has ceased to be”

    If all the experts agree, what are we waiting for: off with their goolies.
