The Tories are on the rampage. Their response to the worst riots in living memory is more state repression. The blame for the riots, according to David Cameron, lies with the “criminal disease” sweeping our neighbourhoods.Cameron also attacked the “moral collapse,” the breakdown of “family values,” poor standards in schools, and a welfare system that rewards the idle.The Tories’ answer, as always, is tougher rules on benefits claims, the introduction of National Service, more discipline in schools, ending the human rights culture, and the introduction of “family tests.”
