The riots have spread like wild fire from Tottenham across London by youth protesters which initially appear to have been in support of a civilian that was shot during a police operation but may reflect how the teenagers are not satisfied with their living conditions.
London is a nice country to live in but it has also been hit by the global economic slump starting in 2008 and as a result the government was put against the wall to cut budgets on education, benefits, and other spending.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has interrupted his summer break to attend to the situation while the MP’s and the Parliament are being recalled this Thursday. The Cobra committee met to discuss which measures to take and try to control the streets of London.
Business owners, homeowners, and citizens are disgusted with the riots and looting as their lives were disrupted, properties were damaged, and even charity stores were stolen from.
