b) You do know what the word 'sovereignty' means don't you?
c) Are you saying that economics is crime?
d) There is more of a moral issue than financial restraints in the youth of Britain today. These riots are evil, comprising of theft and disrespect of others and societies authorities. This same disrespect for authority is rife within the national church CofE/CofS and the nations adults, parents and politicians to name but a few. The society is lawless from the church down.

Check the Book of Job.
Job 42:10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. 12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
