Massive Attack compare UK riots to 2008 British bank bailouts

'Unfinished Sympathy' group Massive Attack have posted a statement on their official Facebook account, comparing the recent UK riots to that of the 2008 bank bailouts. They stated that the scale of the looting is nowhere near as big as the 2008 legal tax avoidance.

The statement read, "In context with the complicit support of the government, the banks looted the nation's wealth while destroying countless small businesses and brought the whole economy to its knees in a covert, clean manner, rather like organised crime. Our reaction was to march and wave banners and then bail them out. These kids would have to riot and steal every night for a year to run up a bill equivalent to the value of non-paid tax big business has 'avoided' out of the economy this year alone."
 
It continued, "They may not articulate their grievances like the politicians that condemn them but this is absolutely political. As for the 'mindless violence'... is there anything more mindless than the British taxpayer quietly paying back the debts of others while contributing bullets to conflicts that we have absolutely no understanding of? It's mad, sad and scary when we have to take to the streets to defend our homes and businesses from angry thieving kids, but where are the police and what justice is ever done when the mob is dressed in pin stripe?"
 
The statement has received a massive response from the Massive Attack fans, with over 1,200 people posting comments on the post and a further 5,000 people choosing to like the comment. However, it is a mixed response with some choosing to agree with the statement and some completely against it.
