‘‘The greed and thuggery we saw during the riots did not come out of nowhere. There are deep problems in our society that have been growing for a long time: a decline in responsibility, a rise in selfishness, a growing sense that individual rights come before anything else.’’
His response a neo-conservative state
‘‘We need a stronger police presence on the streets’’
And who is it that has abandoned their responsibility for the old, sick, disabled and unemployed?
‘‘The fightback also means rebuilding the sense of personal responsibility that has been eroded over the years’’
The Tory/Liberal coalition government, the billionaires and bankers who see no responsibility only self-interest, greed and a right to obscene wealth in a world of growing inequality and poverty.
