Getting in touch with your inner fascist

The riots have certainly brought out the Daily Mail reader in so many people. Not only the politicians (did I hear The Macaroon say they were caused by a lack of indiscipline?) and the usual suspects. People who are usually on the left, or at least liberally inclined, have spouted right wing racist drivel. Some of it, I'm sad to say, from a member of my former Union. A knee-jerk reaction from someone who's perhaps not the sharpest button in the knife-jar, but still...

Meanwhile, this.

Among other predictable knee-jerk reactions from the predictable jerks are some disturbing suggestions from the PM. Interfering with social networking sites. "If you're old enough to commit the crime, you will be punished." So does he mean to lower the age of criminal responsibility to punish kids after they've been arrested?
