A Recipy For Riot

  1. Take one apathetic, peaceful, book-loving student body intent on learning

  2. Tenderise with cuts and broken promises

  3. Optionally add agent provocateur/thug type – this speeds the reaction but is not necessary due to using the kettling technique – guaranteed to bring anyone to a slow violent boil

  4. Sprinkle in a portion of police – ill-equipped and vulnerable causing the trigger happy reactions that seem justified – adds flavour

  5. Leave to simmer with the odd bit of bait/sacrificial target to get the crowd proving

  6. Knead in naive youth quick to follow the flow – after it swells to double the size – bash it down

  7. Season with paparazzi to bring out the ‘incite to violence for the perfect photo’ flavour

  8. Add a match and Voila! The Social Flambe – Riot

  9. Garnish by only reporting the juciest politically-approved bits to the general public

  10. Serve piping hot and full of bias and lies
