Cameron Mourns ‘Moral Collapse’

Prime Minister David Cameron has called for an end to the four days of rioting that have left five dead, thousands facing criminal charges, and at least $350 million in property losses. The prime minister said he believed his country was facing a “moral collapse.” His senior ministers will reportedly spend the next few weeks formulating policies to help build a "stronger society." "This has been a wake-up call for our country. Social problems that have been festering for decades have exploded in our face," Cameron said in remarks planned for his Monday-morning speech.
