Petition Action

A proportionate response to rioting. Rioters' families should not be made homeless.

Additional Information

A call for government to act responsibly in regards to the recent riots. Cutting benefits, kicking families out of their homes and disregarding the sentencing guidelines may grab headlines but will ultimately cost both society and the tax payer more in the long run. Rather than instigating an authoritarian regime to keep the poor and disenfranchised in their place the government should look to address the inequalities that breed gangs and violent, criminal behaviour in this country.
