David Cameron seemed to definitely controlled by the riots that have lived in London, Birmingham and other British cities between the night of Saturday and Tuesday. After the general calm that prevailed in England on Wednesday night, the Prime Minister has said in the debate held this afternoon urgency of Commons that the police maintain the current levels of deployment spectacular until next Sunday to ensure no regrowth violence.

The match of the Football League between Tottenham and Everton, scheduled for Saturday, will be suspended but the rest of the weekend matches in the first round of the season will be played as planned but in the early hours. It is perhaps the clearest sign that the government can throw to make heating the message that the country has returned to normal.

With a packed chamber of deputies who have been forced to stop for 24 hours their summer holidays for the second time in a few days the first interruption was due to the crisis of illegal wiretapping of the News of The World-Prime Minister Britain seemed to put more emphasis on the future, study the causes that have led to looting and to ensure that everyone affected will be compensated in the situation on the ground right now.

He defended the police conduct on the grounds that "the challenge has faced so far only to see how many people did the same, basically, loot, in different places all at once." But it seemed to launch a veiled criticism by stressing that "at first the police faced the situation too as a matter of public policy rather than a situation essentially criminal." Although not explicitly ruled out the use of the Army, said that's something he and the police believe to be just a measure of last resort and subsequently clarified questions from the opposition if they mentioned a possible role of the military is not both in this hypothetical crisis as similar cases in the future.

Despite budget cuts to the constant police pressure in this regard both the opposition leader, Ed Miliband, as many Members, Cameron refused to back the government's plans to reduce budgets for the police and insisted that there is scope to reduce this expense while increasing the presence of police on the streets by reducing their current tasks in offices.

Cameron also gave assurances that private traders and victims of looting but not receive compensation are secure and that the deadline for filing claims will increase from 14 days to 42 days in addition to instructing the Treasury to be flexible with business problems due to the attacks and asking the municipalities to loosen existing regulations that hinder the installation of window in the shops.
