Two men in Britain have been sentenced to four years in jail for trying to stir up last week's rioting using Facebook. Both men posted messages on the social networking site calling for their friends to join in the unrest. They later said it was just a joke and no rioting broke out as a result of their posts. RT talks to investigative journalist Tony Gosling.
