This video from Britain says about itself:
New Labour MP Geoff Hoon is caught using taxpayers money to fund multiple homes. Luckily at the SAME time, the army he sent to their deaths in multiple wars had substandard equipment because “there was no money“.
Seems there was enough money for Hoon, but none to save the lives of those that came back in bodybags.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
The Labour leader said the riots were a symptom of a society that has lost its sense of what is right and wrong.
He said: “There is an issue which went to all our souls. This is an issue not just about the responsibility and irresponsibility we saw on the streets of Tottenham. It’s about irresponsibility, wherever we find it in our society.”
Mr Miliband told Radio 4’s Today programme that Labour had laid some of the foundations for the riots which exploded last weekend.
“I deeply regret that inequality wasn’t reduced under the last Labour government.
“The fact that we are an unequal society is in the background of some of the things which have happened.
“There’s a debate some people are starting – is it culture, is it poverty and lack of opportunity? It’s probably both.”
Britain’s top police officers have hit back at the armchair criticisms made by David Cameron and other politicians over the police’s handling of the recent riots: here.
Cameron, like Mubarak, has shrugged off responsibilities to the populace – and chaos is the unsurprising result, argues Caroline Rooney.
Fifty per cent say spending cuts fuelled the riots.
