Maybe it's built into the British political psyche. After all, the "mother of parliaments" flourishes in a theocratic monarchy without a written constitution; still, it bothers me when British anarchists join and intensify violent riots over government cutbacks. Duuuude, the State is shrinking!
--Oh, but it's shrinking on your patch first, is that the problem? Do it to Julia instead, you say?
(Bonus protip: "Police were pelted with...what they said were light bulbs filled with ammonia...." So that's why they're outlawing incandescent bulbs over here!)
