I have only one thing to say
Put all these rioters, who prove to have caused any damage at all, away for a very long time.
And those who think 16 months is too long for 'protesting' in this way, will find it very hard to justify their argument. It is not enough on this occasion where it will be a miracle if no one has been killed in one of the fires
The anarchists have had their day and it's time to show them that the ordinary hard working person wants to live in peace without threat of harm by these bunch of losers, thieves and thugs.
And please, I do not want to listen to arguments like that of Peston and the Guardianistas. They should hang their heads in shame to suggest that this is down to a few youth clubs closing down. That discussion needs to take place outside of the context of bitter, selfish, mindless idiots.
Nor is it right to focus on the police, who I think have the patience of angels, and are brave in their duties. Let's focus on the culprits and their victims.
Time for all of us to speak out and be counted, treat the causes of violence but in the meantime punish severely those that have no place in our society. Our future generations are relying on us to leave a great legacy. This will not happen if we continue to let the liberal do gooders excuse this inexcusable behaviour.
Well done to the MPs who have spoken out already in strong terms.
