Bats are big sellers in England right now

Improvised weapons are hot! Tech Chronicles is among blogs and news sites now touting England's new love for stuff like American baseball bats:    
Baseball bat sales soared in the last 24 hours on, as the London riots stretched into a third day and spilled outside the city. 
The movers and shakers list for the "sports and leisure" category notes that sales of the "Rucanor Aluminium Baseball Bat" climbed 6,541 percent from yesterday.

Other improvised weapons also making the U.K. Amazon Movers and Shakers list include military style entrenching tools and hefty Maglite four-cell flashlights.

As of this morning, it appears Amazon in England has sold-out its inventory of purpose-specific crowd control batons.
