You can tell a lot about a fellow from when he riots

Are the Cronulla riots a reaction to joblessness? In the Australian yesterday, Cameron Stewart and Amanda Hodge suggested that they might be (prompting some discussion from Paul Watson at Troppo). But as one of my senior colleagues pointed out over coffee this morning, unemployed people don’t need to hold their riots on Sunday afternoons and in the evenings.

I suppose the flipside of this is that if folks start smashing stuff up on Thursday mornings, we should really start to worry.

    Wow, that’s probably the stupidest contribution to the debate so far. And it’s had some tough competition.
