    Some 500 protestors decided to use violence and destruction to get their message across in London. This comes during larger protests expressing disapproval of recent austerity measures. This is perhaps somewhat rather ironic as this writer noticed at least two instances of the anarchi-socialist flag among the demonstrators in the footage aired by the Nightly News, which at first glance would lead one to think these idiots would oppose large-scale welfare state programs in favour of the same local cooperation we might expect a Christian libertarian to advocate. Police report 157 arrests and 43 injuries.

    Far too many people want to be financially cossetted by the state (in other words private sector businesses and employees), either through public sector employment or with welfare payments.

    The same bunch of anarchists and teenage yobs who turn out at EVERY public protest to wreak their havoc on the police and society in general. You cannot get much lower than these excuses for human beings.

    These people remind me of the middle class students who used to try and sell me copies of Living Marxism in central Birmingham about twenty years ago.

    This is what you get when government progressives tell their citizens that the government owes you a living.

    So unions like SEIU love turmoil. They want people to protest. And we have a President that thinks it's just kids doing a public service. He's do proud of them.

    The other day a union leader was overheard giving a speech about how Americans are so wimpy because we didn't take the lead of the protesters in Wisconsin and start burning the country down like all of those idiots in Middle Eastern countries.

    Some sort of expert on the UK are we? Must get you into British government fast! Obviously you haven't read anything on the anarchist movement in Europe.
