Someone I know received the following message on his blackberry some hours ago. It dispels the narrative that the London riots are simply some sort of reaction to material deprivation and the credit crunch.
Ken Livingstone has taken the opportunity to blame the scale of the rioting on the policies of the current government leading to unprecedented levels of disaffected youth. But this is dangerously simplistic political opportunism.
What we are seeing is primarily opportunist thuggery. The reason all this is happening now with such ferocity is because messages like the following have gone viral on social media networks and are being acted out by people with no internal controls.
It is the social media dimension which enables the culprits to move so fast to start new flash-points and surprise the police.
Blackberry and other outlets must be able to trace the original culprits who sent the messages and those who have passed it on:
