Just some stuff I’ve read today that I found all worth reading:

Prospect – David Goodhart: The riots at the end of history

Guardian – Deborah Orr: UK riots: society must change fundamentally if we are to move on

And this one’s worth reading just because it makes the following meme that much funnier:

Miss Johnson, who has run the salon for almost two years, admitted afterwards: “It was like being in a war zone but I had no intention of letting them wreck everything I had worked so hard to build up.

“I spoke to them in language they understood. They are animals and I addressed them like animals.

“I just put my arms out wide with my hands held in the air and said words to the effect of ‘you are not having my shop.’

“I have worked too hard to let it be wrecked by people like that. My legs ache because I spend so long on my feet each day cutting hair.
