THE “anarchy” in Bristol bears out my long-held view that excessive liberalism hassled to the almost total social collapse of the UK – we are virtually at “Mad Max” level.

Locally, “total freedom” must equal anarchy. Civilised life can only continue providing folks agree to abide by a two minute dispersal order, immediately things alter from peaceful protest – allowing the status destruction, was a surrender to anarchy.

When are these folks to be prosecuted and heavily fined, plus compensation to Bristol Council?

Failure to disperse after the 120 second police order justifies an immediate use of tear gas, to enforce compliance – peaceful is fine, anarchy can never be allowed; zealots do not run the UK.
