78 RPM

Even the spin is spinning now. There are only a handful of MPs remaining. MP Angie Bray stumped the party line of punishment, that no more police are necessary, that volunteers are the cure. MP Sir Gerald Kaufman spoke well, citing a youth program in his district that has helped immensely, despite some rude clowns speaking as loudly as possible near him. A Tory gets up and tells about his ol' grandpa who was poor but would never riot. A Labour MP says her honeymoon was ruined and calls the rioters "mindless". Many call for giving the police legalized brutality. And the spin goes on. Anecdotes and pretzel logic. You can follow it live at:
