LIFFE futures exchange and riots

The London futures exchange, LIFFE, was the target of a massive demonstration that turned violent last Friday night.

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.
