Comments: more comments on the riots

Perhaps the pictures of youths helping in the clean up in ther aftermath of rioting and looting should encourage people to understand that many of Britain's youth are ready to get stuck in on the business of reparation - as opposed to the criminal element who choose to take advantage of the mayhem.

The fact that some of our young people are outraged enough to try to make amends for the behaviour of their less civic-minded contemporaries is reason enough not to lump all into the same category of mindless subversives.
