people living in the slums state selling their goods is the only way for them to someone. else i was nominated took a dog ton recently it was riots and looting flaring up next i'll teach others to find out why it happened. i'm joined by francis gilbert teacher and author he's written a book called the nation and is a frequent commentator on youth culture francis thanks for speaking to r.t. so what was your reaction to the riots and were you surprised i suppose i was shocked when i heard of them happening near where i live but i was not surprised because i think a lot of commentators have said this sort of thing. has been waiting to happen for a number of years now why is that. i think it's complicated and i suppose you could isolate a few factors firstly we have
a kind of run of disaffected socially disadvantaged young people in urban areas. and maybe a couple of decades and they have become more and more become. divisions in society it got bigger. and they've become less frightened of the consequences of misbehavior because actually they've been getting away with this sort of behavior for many many years and so i think what we're seeing is a sort of your culture. and the kind of explosion of on the streets in the your crucially in my book i define as a theatrical creature someone who. believes he wants the street to become their theater and the whole point of this sort of thing that we've seen on t.v.
where they're actually parading themselves in their power and smashing things up publicly and this is been a problem in britain for you know a couple of decades so why now why did it suddenly i think. what's happened is you've seen a group a small group of very disaffected alienated people who are on the internet a lot and they are becoming very good at seeing and getting people together in various kind of parts of the country so the social media played a big role in crude meeting it politicians have been quick to dismiss the rise to see criminality but surely they need to take responsibility too isn't this a province of the society they run i mean i would agree that i mean i think it is quite calm pegs i think that yes there are some very disaffected alienating quite very clever people out there from the underclasses who are incredibly bitter about
the lack of opportunity and name credibly ambitious well i teach and i have talked to disaffected a united teenagers who are very clever and they realize that you know actually realistically in the opportunities there for them are very limited for example and what they're facing so they go to university they're facing the mountains of debt they want to get a good job in journalism or law they don't have the parental support the richer people have they don't have the sort of networks that david cameron and his have said was to blame for the thirty forty years ago the vast majority of working class people working factories weren't may now mechanization technology means that what modern western societies are dealing with are. people who are not actually needed for work you have to generate some sort of enterprise culture and that is
a real problem for us to snit we've got a lot of people on welfare. how do you deal with that obviously you need to. you need to kind of think very seriously about how how you keep those people occupied what about the education system is failing. i actually argued very forcefully not know that said education isn't everything as i've been hinting at it once you've got rather highly educated group of people who know that they're not there haven't got huge prospects then you've got perhaps even more of a problem than if they were totally uneducated we also know we have a small minority of very disaffected illiterate poor so the education system has done well and i think it's that mix it's a sort of toxic mix of the bright working class kids and. a group of people lake
a manipulator perhaps very easily educated or not though surely these kids should know that violence is not the answer people brought up in a context where they have a kind of conscience perhaps wouldn't be doing this with day and it is a systems i do something a little education system can really help contact with if you are dealing with a group of people particularly from kind of fractured families in a growing up in quite a brutalized atmosphere it is a real problem to use a one off or is the energy more to come the underlying rumbling kind of disaffection of your brewery that kind of affects all of us in the day to day level i don't think that's going to go away. for many years unless we kind of reorientate to the prospects for a lot of these young people to spread to europe do you think i don't know are i personally not i mean i always say this in my your nation book. you know
french italian cultures so-called have a different attitude to social behavior and it doesn't seem to be so much of a. because of the way for example a treat things like alcohol which again we have mentioned alcohol in britain plays a huge role in the perpetuation of anti-social behavior and causes mass kind of problems throughout the u.k. every weekend what is it about british society then. the means your vicious flourishes and has it always been the case i mean i argue in the book how to mean. in britain used to be john ball who was this drunk fierce sort of yeoman type character who bashed foreigners abroad and that was a. cologne. and that's that was two hundred fifty years ago
even people like david cameron were members of the thing called the bullingdon society which actually actively encourages young men to get drunk and trash property. you know the deputy prime minister. few years ago i punch someone in mouth a range in posting that she was celebrated for you know we have kind of as a culture an attitude to violence we've always joined in whatever was going on you know we kind of quite an aggressive adversarial culture. that really influences things as well it permeates into every level of our society you design it can be changed. i think i do think schools have a role to play and you know i have seen where for example in schools bus drivers have gone into primary schools and spoken to six and seven year olds and changing c.c.t.v. footage of themselves being stoned by your. talk to these young people about how
they felt and how humiliated they felt and not really for me was very convincingly getting young children thinking about other people's feelings and developing a conscience my work in. classroom but how does that transfer on the wide level of society you could argue me obviously david ed miliband has said everyone in the test read the spirit level which is a seminal book about inequality causing ultimately many of society's ills and we have a very. unequal society which. durations of rich and poor rich which have affected things no doubt so there's lots and lots of little things that need to happen really worry that this current government doesn't have a grasp of all sorts of nuts and bolts things you know they need to look at how the police are behaving they need to improve certain things with an underclass in
school they need to look at parenting moves we never personally in this country be not well governed we again have this adversarial system. that well. you have these chopping and changing of policy there's nothing seen through in any kind of long term basis there's no consensus about education health whatever it seems that the government's wanting to come down very tough on those who are caught rioting handing out strict punishments and things. do you think will do more harm than good. i mean again it's back to a kind of holding the scandinavian model of rehabilitation in finland in sweden in norway is the only serious way that you actually deal with these problems on a long term level but just buying them up in prisons where which are overcrowded i
mean these prisons are crime factories they. received of it's a rate of english prison it is sixty seven percent and you know these people go into prison they come out and they re offend again the reaction in many parts of the country from communities. the launch vigilante groups clearly they're angry and they want a heavy handed response is the answer i don't think the public are very well educated about how and why children come to do this so for example there's a lot of discussion around how parents should be teaching their children and you know disciplining them more is so much evidence and all my experience a teacher is that the children by their parents are the ones who the worst behaved you know and that just doesn't come out in the kind of general conversation it's a sort of knee jerk reaction you know we need to be much tougher when we know it doesn't work in the long run ok so what should we do then if we say see thirteen
year old who walking down the street should we give him a hug i think again it's much more. she should say hello building relationships in the in community is very important this is something i've had with you know quite strongly on the web site on my writing you know we have very socially segregated communities and socially segregated schools. where you have schools where all queen she come together we have communities that actually know each other these sorts of problems are dealt with in a bit better fashion francis thanks very much thank you.
