Their Contempt For You Is Absolute

The BBC led a few days ago with a scheme being rolled out in Redruth, Cornwall to attempt to curb anti-social behaviour amongst children by introducing voluntary curfews; DK and Old Holborn have both registered their discust at this and the possibility that other councils may adopt this scheme.
I for one have several issues with this scheme, aside from the norm:

  • This does nothing to stop kids from being "anti-social", it merely makes their place they are behaving anti-socially more localised to their parents (hopefully).
  • Exactly where are the parents in these cases?
  • If these same parents are happy to let these children be on the streets after 8pm (for under-10s) and9pm (for under-16s) then are they really the type of adult we want influencing these same kids? I'm not suggesting taking the children off them by the way.

This is a snap shot from a quick google search of Redruth and some of its locals (i'm guessing enjoying a quiet drink in idylic :

And here is a less-than-leafy suburb of Leeds known as Beeston:

...as well as some of its inhabitants enjoying a "beverage":

...and here is a cross-section of news articles taken from a quick search of google news on the area; you may remember that Beeston's fairly famous for introducing home-grown islamist terrorism in this country - there were some who commemorated 7/7 in altogether different ways too.

Now my point is thus; say that there are genuine excuses for infringing on hard-won liberties, such as curfews for unruly children, or 42-days or any of the other brilliantly hair-brained statist bunkum that is coming from our morally corrupt regime, where do you think it will have the most positive impact? Sunny Redruth? or not-so-sunny Beeston? and where do you think it is more likely, if you are perfectly honest, this scheme will be introduced, and more importantly, enforced?

I know the kids from this estate; most of the time it is the failings of the parents that has caused the near-feral nature of these kids - the stories bring me, a grown man, to tears at times - and yet somehow these kids endure.

And now we have Gordo's political-lackeys in the police and government telling us that, despite their failings to deal with a growing problem, despite their interference, despite them creating more dependants on the welfare state which has caused the burgeoning underclass to grow, they still think they've got it right.

Their contempt for you is absolute.
