Burning Britain: Many of the young urban rioters have been forced to live in an economic wasteland

DAVID Quinn (Irish Independent August 12) -- 'Left has laid the groundwork for riots in Ireland' -- thinks it "doubtful whether the (English) rioters are even aware" of government cutbacks.

I think young people in Haringey in London know that eight out of their 13 youth clubs are to be shut down, especially seeing as so many of them have been involved in peaceful -- and ignored -- campaigns to save these clubs.

The rioters must be very well aware of the recent increases in college fees and cuts to grants that have destroyed any prospect of a decent future for millions.
