The British commentariat is doing the post-mortems. You will not be surprised that they are irrelevant, politically correct exercises by mopes wearing Deep Thinker costumes. No, I’m not talking about leftists who blame the thuggery on too few government-funded youth clubs. I mean the whingers in the Daily Mail and The Telegraph, who imagine themselves fierce, out-front crusaders for traditional values. See here, here, and here. And if you want still more, here.

Don’t feel like wasting several minutes of your lifetime on piffle? Good on you. I’ll summarize. They’re angry at the rioting class. They want the yoofs punished—punished, do you hear? Lock ‘em up or make ‘em join the army (as if the army wants thousands of illiterate, shiftless welfare-coddled dummies to throw into battle).
These brave journos are taking a stand—against gangs! Against battery and burglary! “We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;”….
Okay, chaps, we get it. You don’t like yobs. The welfare state has gone a little too far. Wow, have you ever crawled out on a limb. Hope you don’t get the sack from the papers you write for.
Funny old thing, though, truth-tellers-to-the-world. I notice you don’t say one single word about the race replacement of the British population….
