Given what has happened with the downgrade in our credit rating and the subsequent reaction of the financial markets, the riots in the United Kingdom have been overlooked in this country. Let me state that I am characterizing these events as the U.K. Riots rather than the London Riots for the simple reason that this violence has now spread beyond London into Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham amongst other areas. While the lion's share of the violence has taken place in London this has become a national emergency and the Cameron/Clegg government had better restore order - fast. The U.K. is turning into something out of an Anthony Burgess novel.
