Thank you for fighting my corner Chuck, Hawkybabe does seem to get at his most agitated when I'm asleep. I don't mind what he calls me, just so long as it isn't IzzIE. I did say that riots only occur during Tory Governments, and thank you for your forensic probing of Hawkeye (figuratively of course) so we now know what he's trying to say.
We English do like to mix it up a bit, but there is a world of difference between a bit of a set to after a football match, a tussle on May 1st, and what happened recently. The only thing it really can be compared to are the Broadwater Farm and Poll Tax riots under Thatch. Hawkabilly's not interested in finding out the truth, he's more concerned about proving me wrong. I must have got right up his nose.
As for his use of historical referencing, then I bow to his superior intellect, Medieval England was well known for its socialist form of government. It couldn't have been at all Tory then could it? Wat Tyler was rebelling against the portions of jam in the worker's canteens.
Then Hawkabelle rounds it all off by having a pop at Blair, who is the only one talking any sense. The main problem IS lack of opportunity, and low aspirations. If you get rid of that you'll get rid of a lot of the criminality. It's in the interests of the establishment to portray this as just a problem with gangs and lack of respect for authority. Hawkerella, lackey that he is, is just echoing their words.
As for your question about the Arab Spring don't expect a reply that makes any sense. The best you can hope for is an obscure quotation from the Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam. You will then have to ask loads of probing questions to work out what point he's trying to make, which in the end will be as harebrained as all his other posts.
Hawky is like the leader of the thick kids that sit at the back of the class. He says something to his mates, they think it's quite clever. That gives him the confidence to inflict this bollocks on the rest of us. Hawkywoo, believes this crap, and what is really tragic, is that when he comes out with it, he thinks he's being clever. Sometimes, when I read his posts, I wince with embarrassment. You can only poke the village idiot with a stick so many times before it stops being funny.
