    BBC = Government backed and controlled media.
    Police = Government backed and controlled gang.
    And if the going gets tough there is always the army and martial law.

    Rumours still abound the army dressed as Police, and the Miners attracted rent a mob. What is true is a lot of the Met were drafted into South Yorkshire and there heavy handed tactics did the miners no favours nor South Yorkshire police who were left to pick up the pieces, The distrust is still entrenched over 30 years on

    To be fair they are mainly targeting businesses patronised by the one percenters,they are fast becoming the enemy of the people as the capitalist system does what it does best, destitution of the majority to feed the greed of a tiny minority.
    I can see in years to come,a massive backlash against our current economic enslavement,maybe the French are leading the way?

    Yes, I noted high end eateries, clothes shops and, banks targeted today. Macron should be worried, but with his wealth, he is sorted for life, unlike many of the French citizens.

    French history repeating itself??

    Viewing this mornings BBC 1 news since 07.30, not even a nano second mention on yesterday's events in Paris, I wonder why?

    I do have to agree that the balance is very wrong at the moment..... But don't for one second utter the dread word "socialism"!

    I quite admire the anarchist system,it's just a pity that word conjures up the wrong image as a result of propaganda,the Catalans experimented with it before the Spanish revolution,and it played a big part in early civilization,but because it pretty much excludes government,they will do whatever it takes to oppose and denigrate such a system.
    To be honest I don't really like tags,all systems have their good and bad points,I think it's more important just to do what's right.
