    I witnessed Duncan Lewis representing many clients who have been arrested for rioting in London. Their advocates were in Highbury all night doing an excellent job for the poor children arrrested. The governamet have badly let down this poor generation of youngsters. if the govenrment continues to cut cut cut every service there is going to be a breakout of civil unrest in UK. The govenment needs to address this situation quickly.
