The riots

Harriet Harman, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party (the party of government in Britain, 1997-2010), debates the riots with Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for Education. (Background: she was prominent in the 1977 Grunwick dispute and met her future husband, Jack Dromey, on the picket line.)

For the most concise analysis of the causes so far, see The Disastrous Death of Common Sense by Charles Crawford.
