One effect of the riots, I anticipate, will be to further highlight the disunited nature of society in the so-called United Kingdom.
What is the "solution" to the riots?
Condemn them as "mindless" criminality or violence? Send in the Army to supress the riots?
Or consider that such riots have causes? And sensibly address those causes?
But if the riots have causes it requires some radical thinking and political dexterity on the part of Government.
Sadly, I suspect that Cameron and Clegg are incapable of anything other than political fudge and cover-up.
