WANT to know why riots broke out inLondon, Manchester and Biurmingham? Well, it wasn’t just the polar bears :

Manchester United footballer Wayne Rooney ( Daily Star champion of the anti-riots ) :

“How do you inculcate values in a child whose only role model is footballer Wayne Rooney — a man who is bereft of the most meagre human graces?” – Max Hastings, Daily Mail

Video Games:

“These are bad people who did this. Kids out of control. When I was young it was all Pacman and board games. Now they’re playing Grand Theft Auto and want to live it for themselves” – Policeman (unnamed) in  the Evening Standard

Dads :

“You only had to see the burning streets of London last week to see the manifestation of a fatherless society” – Miranda Devine, Telegraph (Aus)

Tony Blair:

“Where did all this start? Try asking Tony Blair. A year before he became Prime Minister he delivered a speech on law and order that came close to condoning shop theft. Blair said that “hard-pressed” single mothers or pensioners pocketing “treats” were not a serious concern. He told a meeting of retailers that the real threat came from organised gangs” – David Hughes in the Daily Telegraph
