To me this suggests there was an organised anarchic element to all this, perhaps encouraging the spreading of the rioting. From my memories of school (inner London comprehensive in my case), teachers were the worst anarchists.

I know it's piss but what about filling the water cannons with petrol I mean add dye to the water then the fuckers wouldn't be hard to find. It would probably cost the government a few quid in compensation for ruined track suits though.
My thoughts exactly mate!! -
Also, were is the rubber bullets?!.. and the canisters, I have also thought about the dye.. surely it makes sense!!
Disgrace!! - Feckin peoples lives are being ruined by these lilte thieves, and I see very little being done about it.

All the things I have read and heard describe him as a 'primary school worker'. This means he could be working in any capacity in the school, eg caretaker, grounds maintenance, kitchen etc. Unlikely to be a teacher as they would have described him as such. Total idiot though.

There needs to be maximum public humiliation of all of these scrotes convicted of theft/inciting violence or whatever. I also believe the legal protection given to 'under age' offenders should be lifted, at the very least publicising pictures of these young criminals should have the affect of humiliating the parents too.

Without sounding too pedantic....media/MP's etc are stating this as a British epidemic. It's not, it's English.

As I said, everything I have read and heard does NOT describe him as such. Conflicting information perhaps?

One case before the court on Wednesday morning was a man called Alexis Bailey, a 31-year-old who works at a primary school in Stockwell. He was found in an electrical goods store in Croydon on Monday and pleaded guilty to burglary.

Source BBC

Stockwell learning mentor, 31, bailed after pleading guilty to charge of breaking and entering at electrical shop

Source: Guardian

A PRIMARY school worker has pleaded guilty to burglary with intent to steal after being found inside a looted shop.
Alexis Bailey, 31, was part of a mob caught in electrical store Richer Sounds, in Croydon, South London, on Monday.

Bailey who earns 1,000 a month working full time in a primary school in Stockwell, South London gave himself up when cops ordered looters downstairs.


Source - SUN

Anyway, whatever he does he won't be doing it for much longer.

There was a bit in the news the other day that the Scottish population is as high as it's been in a long long time.

The prediction was the population was going to drop fast.

The reason given for the opposite was the amount of english moving here.
