So, basically, what Cameron is saying is “no, no! It’s not my fault! It’s these stupid, uneducated, unemployed, violent, ill-bred, poor people! How dare they ransack our streets? It’s got nothing to do with politics, nothing to do with how I cut their social funding, cut their benefits, ignore their deprivation and poverty. They’re just scum!”
What a piece of Tory shit. I don’t deny that there are opportunistic arseholes out there and they played parts in these riots, but to completely ignore and deny that politics, his politics, had anything to do with them is the typically uninformed, ignorant, arrogant, selfish attitude of a Etonian Tory scumbag.
To quote something he did literally say:
”This is not about poverty, it’s about culture. A culture that glorifies violence, shows disrespect to authority, and says everything about rights but nothing about responsibilities.”
Yes, David, yes, it’s about a culture you’ve created with your pandering to the City and your complete lack of giving a shit about people who can’t afford to bail out banks, who can’t afford to pay for education, who can’t goddamn afford any of the things that you, with your white, middle-class upbringing, took for granted. You’ve just cut the funding to the little they did have by as much as 75%. If we disrespect authority, maybe you should take a look at that authority, your authority, and have a think about whether or not it’s actually worth respecting. My suspicion is that it’s not. At all. Respect is a two-way street, sir; have a think about that.
