"The longer they last, the more I'll take," says the young rioter to Katharine Birbalsingh, here. Another excellent piece. What exactly will the looters do if no-one restocks the shops? The Guardian has been complaining that no-one has looted Waterstones. This of course is part of the problem. Looting and literacy do not go together.
A quote stands out
When I ask him if the experience of prison – the locked cell, the hard bed, the dreadful food – had made him question his lifestyle, if it made him fearful of returning there, he is confused. “Nah, nah… I liked it there. It had nice hospitality. And I had time to think.”
Ms Birbalsingh has followed this with an interesting piece on David Starkey, here. I didn't post on this as I didn't understand what he meant. Perhaps she does. Perhaps he doesn't understand what he meant. He's not always the brightest when it comes to the world outside his history books.
