You seem to forget that Parliment is a parlimentary building.
That is, it is one of the most heavily defended buildings in the country.
If the rioters got too close to it armed police would have to start firing indiscriminately into the crowd to disperse them.
Though by that point, martial law would have probably been declared.

While were on the subject, why hasn't the government declared martial law yet? It would sort this problem out in a matter of hours.

Martial law wont be called for the image.. britian prides it self on being a moral hub of knowledge, and buisness, ... if martial law is called, that would undermine the ideas that the british work to achieve..
And eventually the rioting will stop, and the riot police will win, its not the politicians saying no martial law... it's the crown

Apparently Salford precinct is closing early due to reports of a riot. And supposedly, the Sainsbury's on Regent road was already hit.

Apparently there was a group of about 50 youths in redhill town centre that were dispersed by police pretty quickly, I can't fucking believe it. I'm in the most middle class place on earth, and even we're getting riots. I'm astounded.

Oh well peace out to ma bitchezzz in selly oak, stay safe.

I've heard nothing about that yet. So far these are just rumours. However a riot in Manchester (especially in Salford or Moss Side) is inevitable.

Brother just told me that some guy told news that:

Someone rung in to help close my shop, but there wouldn't be time.So I put on a scarf to cover my face and went into my shop. Everyone there, was black! "Surely not EVERYONE? Surely there was at least a few white people?"

"Oh yeah, there was. I WAS the ONLY white person there."

Now, I'm not saying that black people are only known for thieving and stealing, but that just shows the epitome of the thuggish yobish culture that surrounds London and outer.


While reading this sentence, someone in the world has been born with your name. Congrats.

I hope everyone there is safe, and gets care if they are injured. Its a really bad riot, and its a shame people can be that way. Everyone who lives there, stay safe.

This wasn't rioting, this wasn't some kind of mass kick back against the system, but relatively small groups of young people taking their chance to steal.

I fucking hate pikeys.

maybe I'm crazy, but I don't see riots happening again tonight. A smaller group will attempt it I'm sure but with the extra police presence and lack of numbers they'll fail and then this will all blow over.

people suck

I feel the same, police in towns around here [Birmingham] are just closing everywhere off early just in case. I hope you're right.

Well, the police said they are going to be using a much more forceful way of policing if it happens tonight. Hopefully that means smashing the fuckers heads in.

Yeah apparently police numbers are going to triple tonight so we'll see what happens. Sounds like it'll be over relatively quickly though.
