Tough on the Causes of Riots

I hate arbitrary destruction.  But Tony Blair's sound-bite about crime summarizes a rational approach to the riots.

Which is just by way of preamble to some well-deserved mockery, of Theresa May for the completely wrong prediction in her remarks to a police conference nearly a year ago "The British public simply don't resort to violent unrest in the face of challenging economic circumstances", and of Nick Cohen writing in The Observer two days ago "No Riots Here", for his spectacularly poor timing.
