Der Spiegel On The British Riots

It's because there wasn't enough government wealth redistribution.
The riots in London are a social Fukushima for the Western world. Should we really be suprised that an increase in wealth for just a few, accompanied by simultaneous impoverishment of the masses, could not continue unabated?
It's the fault of the bankers and media.
The blazing infernos which took hold in the UK's biggest cities have shocked British society. It wasn't a desire to protest that drove the brutal looters onto the streets, but pure consumer greed. Bankers, politicians and media moguls have made this greed socially acceptable.
Personally, I blame the Smurfs.

This makes me want to smash things and then burn them.
