"As the riots spread through London and beyond, they became more rooted in proletarian rage/the desire for things stores normally make you pay for," he said.

He added: "Here's what you gotta love about anarchy in the UK — even their looters queue up!"

Jon even displayed a picture of the rioters doing just that.
