    Hi. I would like to comment on your discussion about the Riots this week. Many of the reasons for this trouble comes down to one thing – a lack of a job whatever your age. In the current economic situation which is pretty desperate job wise i can give you an example from my life. I was made redundant on 30/12/10 and have been unemployed since then, have had 4 interviews and gained one temporary job where i only worked for one week before i was made redundant AGAIN!
    Although very bitter i don’t have a urge to riot but the phrase ‘the devil makes work for idle hands’ comes to mind when i see shops being looted!
