As riots spread across Britain, a folding shovel has become a top-seller in Amazon UK's Sports and Leisure section.
Sales of the Gelert Folding Shovel have increased nearly 23K% over the last 24 hours to place 12th overall in the sports category but number-one in the "movers and shakers" list. Rounding out the top six in that list are various brands of baseball bats, with 24-hour sales increases ranging from 5K% to 13K%.
One customer writes of the Rucanor Aluminum Baseball Bat (#4 and 14th overall), “This is the perfect alternative to a society that is progressive that has long banned firearms. It's long cylindrical taper designed is perfect for distributing brain matter of feral youth trying to harm you. It comes with a 30 day money back guarantee to be free from manufacture defects.”
Prime Minister David Cameron plans to deploy 10K more police in London and has called an emergency session of Parliament.
