David Cameron has said contingency plans are now in place for the use of water cannons if needed. On BBC News at about 11.45 this morning. Just seen it on internet site. So water cannons are possible after all.

Yes, water cannons will be available - within 24 hours notice.

Sorry, that was for Ankou
what i mean is that it is just words.
What good is 24 hour notice. The looters will be long gone!
Question Author
I know that's what you mean, but why would Cameron say this, if it wasn't possible? By the way I know he's a politiican and they all lie, but surely people would expect water cannons if he promised them and more riots ensued ?
Exactly as Ankou said.

They want to tell people what they want to hear, so they are saying that they will allow water cannons to be used, except they don't actually want to use them.

Just a thought though, we have fire engines. A carefully aimed jet from a hose is (a) gonna soak em and (b) may knock them off their feet. Even a soaking is better than nothing though, and if you are wet through, then you were in the looting and riot mob.
I understand that plans are in force to supply water cannons to the police in large numbers.

Yes, not a bad idea Postdog
Question Author
Well, they have got 'serious soaking action' Ron, just what we need !
Until the water cannon arrive, the police could perhaps settle for water pistols.
