British Prime Minister David Cameron Monday pledged a review of government policies following last week's riots, to ensure they are bold enough to fix a "broken society".
Speaking at Oxfordshire, the British Prime Minister said he would speed up plans to deal with anti-social behavior and improve parenting and education.
He pledged to "turn around the lives of the 120,000 most troubled families" by the next election in 2015 and pledged an "all out war" on gang culture.
Cameron described the rioting, looting and arson that spread from London to parts of the East and West Midlands, Merseyside, Bristol, Manchester and Gloucester as "a wake-up call for our country".
"Social problems that have been festering for decades have exploded in our face," he said.
"Now, just as people wanted criminals robustly confronted on our street, so they want to see these problems taken on and defeated he added.
"Our security fightback must be matched by a social fightback.
We must fight back against the attitudes and assumptions that have brought parts of our society to this shocking state.
" Cameron said.
He included children without fathers, schools without discipline and communities without control in a long list of what he believes has gone wrong in parts of the country.
He pledged that, together with ministers, he would consider whether government plans and programmes are bold enough to mend a "broken society".
