It is fantastic that we all live in a democratic state where freedom of speech is permitted and healthy debate encouraged between people holding differing views. What a shame therefore that some people feel that they only way they can get their voice heard is to undertake anarchic action. Staging a sit in at Fortnum and Masons, throwing light bulbs filled with ammonia at the police and generally causing mayhem has no place in our society.
Whether Lib Dem, Labour, Tory or Green, there is no excuse for this type of behaviour that undermines the essential infrastructure that keeps our society together. We will never all agree on an issue but the way to deal with disagreement is by sensible consultation, compromise and acceptance that democracy allows people to have different priorities in life but who can still live side by side with each other.
Anarchy undermines the fibre that keeps society cohesive and no responsible citizen should support or participate in actions that could promote this. The coalition have a tough job - cuts have to be made unfortunately and some will sadly suffer. Lets look at constructive ways to lessen the impact and help those most affected instead.
