  Wed. 8/10/11 9:58am Brian in UK:

More than 12 people constiutes a riot. The Prime Minister is loathe to call it that because the Police could be culpable for damage compensation.

while i normally abhor song requests with the subject word in the song or title that have no apparent bearing on the subject at hand, I appeal to you to consider Wire's Up To the Sun, with the lyric "A riot of red" if only because it's a lovely song and would play well with looting, rioting footage, in an absurd, juxtaposition sense.

  Wed. 8/10/11 10:47am jan:

dunno whether to hope the riots are soon over in GB or to hope that riots
start in Japan and Germany, cause Ken is stressing British music
a bit too much on today's show.

it's a mystery!
  Wed. 8/10/11 11:09am still b/p:

Speaking of naked and Nasty -- a local burlesque performer is Rosie Rimjob. When she was interviewed in the main local daily paper, kind of odd to see "Rimjob" repeated over and over with such nonchalance, when it never would've made it into print at all a while back. Now all the children are confused.

"Though facing new questions about social exclusion, Johnson and other Conservatives dismissed that the riots were anything other than the product of poor parenting, wanting morals and misdirected anger."

(England riots - Key points)
British rapper Plan B condemns the riots in England in an audio clip released on his website. The 27-year-old east London rapper questions the rioters motives, asking: "What's the point of getting arrested and getting put in jail for a pair of new trainers or a microwave?"
  Wed. 8/10/11 11:53am iPhopho:

I just read about the Hackney heroine (she's an internet radio community DJ)!

Her name is Pauline Pearce and she's also a 45 year old jazz singer! :)

Check the youtube video to see how she confronted the looters!

The looters are doing exactly what they're supposed to do: strengthen the power structure by making the alternative look too scary.

A simple comment: I have never seen a more prolific website discovering creative art form combining political, historical and direct commentary with humour before in all my personal transitions of life.

Too cool and actually great work that you exercise, here.
