That French riots story in full

Deep waters here, but the general drift appears to be as follows:-

Some oppressed youths began rioting in really quite a small sort of way, but then along came a very unpleasant government minister called Monsieur Sarky and told them they were scum. They were naturally dreadfully upset about this and set about proving him wrong. Score to date: one burnt-out synagogue, two burnt-out churches and one 61-year-old man beaten into a coma whilst trying to put out a fire in a rubbish bin. Whether Monsieur Sarky has got the message yet is not clear.

If anyone wants to call their blog Monsieur Sarky, pardon mon vieux, but I have asserted my moral right.
