@Chopera. The only meaningful riots I can remember, meaningful in the sense that they got the government to change its policy, were the poll tax riots in the UK. Ordinary people rioted over a ridiculous law which was going to cost poor people money while making the rich richer.

In a way, it’s similar to the situation in Cyprus, a situation which will become unsustainable if the banks open briefly and quickly run out of money.

Doesn’t the UK have some responsibility for Cyprus for historical reasons? The few billion needed by Cyprus will hardly be felt by the UK, already in debt to the tune of a trillion – it’s a drop in the ocean.
