Quote of the Day: Not In My Backyard Edition


“Evicting the family of a young person involved in knife crime or any other violence really is the last resort. All the partners involved – the police, the council, social services – will have made many attempts to engage with the parents of the person and try and bring them on board.” –Det Supt Stuart Ryan in Simple enforcement is not enough to fight knife crime, say top cops [at www.islingtongazette.co.uk]

    My inner nerd passively channels the quote ‘the more you tighten
    your grasp, the more will slip through your fingers’. (not exact
    quote but the idea’s the same)

    However, the rest of me is quite a bit more confrontational. If
    someone tried to remove me based on the actions of someone else
    and their own failures, they would irrevocably find that all their
    worst fears about a non compliant sheeple would be brought
    swiftly and brutally to bear.

    Getting a council home (public housing) should be seen as a privalge, one that can be revoked if you can’t follow some simple rules, like not stabbing the neighbours! Seems simple enough
