They wouldn't dare. Imagine the protests!

Petition on Government website calling for looters to be evicted from council houses receives 100,000 signatures in 48 hours

  • Website crashed after massive demand
  • Those convicted will lose their benefit entitlement
  • Manchester council vows to boot out looters

Last updated at 6:20 PM on 11th August 2011

Over 100,000 people have called for convicted rioters and looters to lose their benefits saying they show a disregard for the country that provides for them.


An online petition at epetitions.direct.gov.uk demands welfare-dependent rioters convicted of offences linked to the recent disorder should surrender their state handouts.

Now the figure has topped 100,000 signatures and the petition has proved so popular the government site hosting it has crashed under the strain.

Well, I am sure I am going to get hit with the racist .avi for this one.

I think if the Brits are asking us how we deal with gangs, and there is a cry for home and shop owners to be allowed
firearms for self defense. Maybe we should try this out as well. Commit a crime and your family (if they are on public assistance)
loses their rights to said public assistance.

If that actually takes place I will eat a shoe.*


























*Of my choosing. May not be actual shoe, but food shaped in a shoe-reminiscent manner. Offer void on days ending with the letter "y".

As well it should be.

I wonder if you asked the Brits this.

Hey Brits, should the lazy welfare leeches lose their free houses if they commit other crimes too , or just looting??

I bet youd be surprised.

Ask the same question here, youd get the same response . At a bare minimum 45% would be against evicting criminals from free housing.

Well, between the story of baseball bat sales being up 6,500% and this, I'd say there's a good chance that this riot will turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the British people. Maybe they'll start getting their nation back on the right course.

"Welfare handouts", "Council Housing"...what the fuck is wrong with the world? I see young people rioting. Working age people.

Same thing in America. Why are they/we paying for this shit? We need to vote politicians into office who promise to cut "entitlements" off. If I can work, they can too.
I don't give a damn if it causes a fucking revolution or civil war. If they want to act like mangy dog trash, they can get put in a cage or shot between the eyes like mangy dog trash.
Too many idiots living in fear of riots and letting these weak minded, disease ridden hoodlums hold a gun to our heads. It's robbery, nothing less.

I love your ideas Lootie and agree 100% but, where could we find even a handful of politcians with the balls to get up and say they want to cut entitlements?
The problem, as I see it is, there are now to many of them (people with entitlements) than there are of us, that's why we can't vote them out anymore.

I'm not ruling that out. My solution only addresses the financial problem. Crowd control is another issue entirely.

I got news for you, in jersey they have been evicting entire families if Jr or anyone in the family gets caught dealing drugs from the housing unit.
They have been doing this nation wide here for a long time

It is called "Legal Plunder" and it was recognized by Fredric Bastiat nearly 200 years ago.
