The Guardian has a poll: should there be a curfew tonight? (to help 'crutail' the riots, oh Guardian, never change). I think not. And tomorrow I'm definitely going out for the evening, and any other evening I feel like it. Surprisingly nearly two thirds of respondents say yes. Yes! To each one of us being under house arrest after dark. And what do they suggest the penalty should be for stepping outside of your front door?
And the number of people saying the Tories should put the army on the streets! Just like they did in Northern Ireland in the late sixties. Yeah, that went well, barely any repercussions. Well, only for a few decades.
ETA: H sent home three hours early, and he says the centre of Birmingham was being closed down as he left.
