"England riots" is a series of two nouns; it should use an adjective. Article editor (talk) 18:45, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
This article has been the subject of multiple RMs, and this specific move was rejected in July... when you proposed it! Whack! Moves of this page should be treated as potentially controversial. --BDD (talk) 19:02, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
Note: The above comment was added to contest this as an uncontroversial technical request. --BDD (talk) 23:00, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
I take no position on the move, but I note that either form is grammatically correct. "England riots" are riots which occur(red) in England. "English riots" can mean the same, or can refer to riots which are English in character (e.g., riots of English people, riots associated with or conducted in the English language). And whatever you make of these semantics, there's nothing wrong with using a noun as an adjective. Compare to, for example, England national football team. --BDD (talk) 23:00, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
Oppose this article is not concerned with the various riots concerning the English-language in 2011, nor by "English"-people outside of Britain in 2011. And we've discussed this many times before. -- 220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:06, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

The original paragraph referring to Chingford says "The morning of 8 August was quiet, but by evening areas across London were affected by widespread looting, arson and violence, with significant outbreaks in parts of Battersea, Brixton, Bromley, Camden, Chingford Mount, Croydon, Ealing, East Ham, Hackney, Harrow, Lewisham, Peckham, Stratford, Waltham Forest, Woolwich, and Woodgreen."
Based on the above news links, it seems to reasonable to say there was looting and violence in Chingford, and that the reference should remain. This was beginning to turn into an edit war, so I'll leave it for now and will leave it up to others to comment and decide whether the reference to Chingford is fair. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sw4geoff (talk • contribs) 18:26, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
