Every time there is some kind of global summit I fast forward the news as it is the same thing year after year. A bunch of people wearing black throwing bricks and messing up the streets so some poor street cleaner will have a busy week.
There are probably quite a few of those people who are passionate about anti-capitalism and globalisation. Who buy fair trade and live with generators for their electricity. There are probably about 80% of those rioting in London at the moment who are there for the fun of it.
Those people who will listen to their iPods and wear their sweatshop clothing while nipping into Starbucks on the way home from smashing a few bank windows and spitting in cops faces are the kind of people that make my blood boil.
Stop jumping on the band wagon and get back to work.
