Have you been affected by riots?

A mob dragged a motorcyclist from his £9000 superbike and made off with it during rioting in London yesterday. Andy Burt, 47, was riding his year-old Honda CB1000R home from work in central London just after 6pm when he stumbled into a developing riot in Peckham.

I would love to know who the insurers are that feel they need to 'review' the case. If they even have to think about this case for a milisecond then I wouldn't want to insure my bike with them!

Makes you wonder... I wouldn't mind seeing these criminals brought to justice (and the bike jackers too ;-) hahaha)

PS - Andy hope you're OK (bunch o'c****!)

Ready, Aim, Fire!

There are still some wet liberal apologists being wheeled out on the BBC saying it's 'cos their Mummies don't love them and they don't know who their Daddies are (how true) and we should all really try to understand them. Time to bring in the Army and stop p*ssing about.

Fire when ready

one simple answer military curfew and law that’s what the TA and forces are for the police are too soft and are not allowed to do anything, I’m in the forces and i would happily go and get my rifle to stand guard, its a simple fact that these people are doing this because they know they can get away with it but if the forces were on the ground this wouldn’t happen ! hope everything works out for you buddy

Although I wasn't there, I might not be the best person to comment but I'd be enraged if someone was trying to get away with my bike in front of me. Six foot guy, whatever. You've got your helmet, gloves with reinforced knuckles and other gear on. They would have had a hard time getting me down and away from my bike if it had been me.

I agree

the UK is turning into a joke, benefit culture and just generally lazy, moaning, ill educated tw@ts all over the place. MP's are useless, get rubber bullets and tear gas on em (the mobs, that is not the MP's) can you imagine any other country pussy footing around with these nob ends? Really boils my piss.

Shoot the rioters on sight, we are already hearing the usual excuses for the rioting from left wing liberals.

Kennon's a racist idiot

You're an idiot. I'm Asian, a former Londoner, and I'm a taxpaying former soldier, who is now a doctor. Most of my relatives are law-abiding physicians as well and love this country. If you've never served in the military STFU, and keep your racist comments to yourself.
