John Derbyshire is a major douche:

Through British veins runs the poisonous fake idealism of "human rights" and "sensitivity," of happy-clappy multicultural groveling and sick, weak, deracinated moral universalism — the rotten fruit of a debased, sentimentalized Christianity. When not begging for forgiveness and chastisement from those who rightfully despise him, the modern Brit is lost in contemplation of his shiny new car or tweeting new gadget; or else he has given over all his attention to some vapid TV production or soccer team. I treasure my faint, fading recollections of Britain when she was still, for a few years longer, a nation. Today Britain is merely a place, a bazaar. Let it burn!

You can't riot like this in a US city, the shopkeepers will shoot you.

Screw the shopkeeps, the cops would shoot you first.

They take a overbearing "no risk" mentality nowadays.

It's kicking off near me in Manchester. Miss Selfridges is being burnt down, the UGG boots shop has had it's doors smashed and there's quite a few hooded "people" on Picadilly gardens and on Market street.

The only real reason I can think of that this would happen is that youths are just thinking "Well, everywhere else got a riot, why shouldn't we?"

Nothing around here yet. Which is enough proof if you still need it that there is no political considerations in this at all - one would think the constituency of the home secretary would be the #1 target were there to be political motivation involved...

(though the rioters probably don't even know what a constituency or a home secretary is)

Foot Asylum, Swarovski and lush have all had heir windows smashed. Barclays and HSBC all have armed guards inside so don't think the rioters fancy it.

Is Manchester the furthest north the rioting has spread, do we know?

I also saw a bit this morning on some of the organised street gangs in London bragging about what they've been up to (burning patrol cars/looting/robbery etc) which in turn prompted rival gangs to "up their game" by burning more police vehicles and looting more shops. I'd imagine this might be part of the reason why gangs of youths further north started rioting, not to be outdone. It sounds [bleep]ing stupid but it's the exact same here with teams of neds and scumbags going [bleep]-for-tat, fighting and stabbing people over "territory". If your rival does something, you do the same but in a more impressive fashion.

Heck, I'll try to find the article. It puts it a lot more eloquently.

Liverpool had last night, I think that's just slightly further north. It'll be Cumbria and Kendal next :ohnoes:

Rolex, Mcdonalds and Tesco metro are also now victims. It's all in/around Market Street and St Annes Square in Manchester.

I heard Leeds had it a bit last night too and that's further north of either.

Chilling in Ealing, it was the most scariest thing; knowing that our Nando's may not be there the next morning. Allow Greggs.

But yeah, rioters smashed all the windows of my favourite Restaurant:

Why are people just breaking stuff at random...? I read the OP, but I don't recall seeing a reason as to what the rioters expect to get by breaking windows of small businesses.
