LIFFE futures exchange and riots
The London futures exchange, LIFFE, was the target of a massive
demonstration that turned violent last Friday night.
Protestors who see extreme capitalism (as opposed to making a profit?!)
vandalised the area surrounding the building.
This social unrest is a result of a few lunatics whipping up discontent
in people who HAVE fallen through societys 'safety nets', after
years of neglect under Thatcher and now Blair. Perhaps the rioters
need jailed, those in need should be tended and Blair should get off his
oversized ego and do something positive for the economy.
No more pound. Lower interest rates so real businesses can create REAL
jobs, and an end to the tacit approval of the destruction of the Euro
currency by jingoistic currency dealers!.
