“The society which has abolished every kind of adventure makes its own abolition the only possible adventure.” Paris, May 1968

Spot checks could spark summer riots.

Of course the Border Agency program of intimidating "Go Home" vans and even more intimidating spot checks has very little to do with immigration and everything to do with convincing voters that this government is taking a firm line with "illegals". It may yet turn out to be a very expensive mistake. It will only take a couple of bonehead Border Agency types doing a spot of on the street racial profiling, some disgruntled youths not having any of it, add a few over enthusiastic coppers and it's London's Burning all over again. Government Enquiry? I should say so.

Summer riots eh. Despite being warned off this site I have to comment. Rioters this time might open up banks and large stores and distribute cash, food and clothes to the poor. Then they will form the Social Movement: united in hatred of the oppressor class, they will create a society ruled by worker's assemblies where everyone agrees with their leaders, or else. Thereafter, a day at work, a couple of hours listening to shrill UAF style voices at the worker's assembly, then finally home to fall asleep in front of the plasma TV which is playing yet another 1980s punk rock concert for grandad's revolutionary generation. Time for dinner: jellied eels? Nope. This is Year Zero for the Social Movement and university graduates are for the chop, and since, according to Incubus' blog, “Man has the right to deal with his oppressors by devouring their palpitating hearts.”, mum is serving heart of toff. What kind of sicko advocates eating human hearts, you might ask? Not for me to troll on about is it.
Come to think of it: if there are riots, I hope they are quelled with water cannon. Nothing in them for me or any working class people I know.
