London Riots and Focus Group Politics


Much has been said about whether the recent riots in London and rest of the UK could or could not be considered as a form of political expression. Whereas more really has to be said about whether the tory response to it can be considered as legitimate politics or not. Ever since the tories have consulted their cheese nibbling focus groups, they took no time in taking radical policy measures. Like updating their favourite slogan “broken society” into “quite frankly, sick society” and hence demonstrated to the entire nation that they are perfectly aware of the problem’s magnitude. The irony is of course that this vital upgrade to tory sloganisation did not come when the less desirable elements of society (aka children of single mothers) were simply murdering each other.

What is meant by “not just broken, but quite frankly sick society”? Though of course, your guess is as good as mine. This quite literally means anyone who even has a fleeting thought that something interesting might come out of investigating/discussing possible reasons for the rioting beyond the insatiable greed of the ‘feral rats’ involved in it, is guilty of “left-wing cynicsm” to quote the Daily Fail.

So if you want to look into reasons beyond the abolishment of corporal punishment due to political correctness. Be prepared for a whole range of accusations ranging from ‘ivory tower lefty’ to ‘traitor’.

Another fascinating tory idea that drew attention after the riots is of course “big society”. The original inventors of the concept are so clueless as to what it means that earlier this year the coalition has attempted to reshape the Arts and Humanities Research Council to force academics into researching their made up concept, like some early 20th century single party government.

Essentially, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that ‘big society’ means nothing more than dismantling state services and flogging the responsibility of their provision to others. For instance security is going to be provided by such respectable ‘big society’ elements as the EDL (Enfield Defence League) who were so concerned with avoiding confrontation and violence in their neighbourhood, they never had the time to disassociate themselves from an organisation that incites racial hatred.

I don’t know about you comrades, but I sure sleep easy knowing that there is a government out there that can come up with hollow focus group generated slogans and declare the mildest deviations from it as “phoney concerns about human rights” at best, or a form of treason at worst. It feels good to know that mobilising more than 3 brain cells into determining WHY the riots have happened is considered as ‘justifying’ looting and violence!

If looked carefully, there is not a real difference between the kind of politics practised by the rioters and by the coalition. One rabidly raids local stores without clearly expressing any particular view on how they would like to change society. The other semi-conciously invents meaningless slogans for the sole purpose of holding on to power.
