Which shop escaped the London riots? #ukriots

aug 12th, 2011 CE

a lot of the usual justification based on alleged 'economic deprivation'. i think this is a bit bogus. my hunch is that there has always been a permanent underclass ('low caste'?) in the UK. they just can't ship these thugs to the 'colonies' any more. 

but the final bit is great. i feel bad for the small shopkeepers of indian origin who probably have had their shops looted. but the fact that one shop escaped is illuminating. shows you what people value. yes, ipads, clothes. not this junk.
