I really do not understand the inconsistency shown by the UK government with regard to the illegal demonstrations and arson which are regretably currently a feature of life in Egypt.
In the UK, we have seen how the Metropolitan Police have cracked down on the criminal elements of student unrest in London. Should not the Egyptian authorities be encouraged to follow their example?
Instead, our Foreign Secretary William Hague's calls for government restraint are tantamount to encouraging Egyptian revolution - something which could ruin the hard earned holidays of many British people!
