Team predictions? by BlueBadger 20 Nov 18:33
Judge up front? We're playing for 0-0 and penalties then?

Good luck with that backline.

No, it's down to the police to deal with criminal harrassment and incitement wherever it happens though.

Except that, as Mullers has already pointed out, it doesn't. Not to a truly effective and worthwhile degree.

We don't have the police numbers to do that, for starters....

It stops those adults doing it, because they were picked up as kids and put on the righht path before they had the chance to become adult criminals.
And a fit-for purpose probation service works to keep those who have offended from doing it again.

This really isn't that hard, you know.

There's no short term solution now, that's the problem. The infrastructure to respond quickly isn't there.

I've explained once, but I'll do it again - youth clubs, as awell as sports clubs have all been hammered for community funding. They provide somewhere safe for kids to go and something for them to do. In addition, the people running them are usually pretty adept and recognising, stepping in and mentoring the vulnerable ones BEFORE they get to the 18-24-mugging-people stage - at that point they're lost and could easily stay lost thanks to a privatised probation service that isn't fit for the purpose of cutting reoffending.

Prevention, as always is better than cure. And the past decade has seen a record of miserable failure in that respect from a government which is penny-wise and pound stupid.

Reduced police numbers is a bit of a no-brainer. Plus, the loss of many, many youth clubs, council-subbed sports clubs and outreach services. These people are excellent and recognising and intervening early with vulnerable kids to stope them getting sucked into this culture.

That's how.

This is the product of cut-and-farm-out-to-the-private-sector politics.
Not just in policing or legal aid and probation but in youth and community outreach projects.

Almost as if adding the profit motive to inherently non-profit-making services makes them worse, whilst ultimately costing more.

The cat's out of the bag now. Randomly targeting 'suspicious' kids won't solve the problem, root causes are still there.

But, like food bank usage, it's been snowballing since the decision to cut, cut, cut some more and privatise the rest became government policy.

Aren't a lot of the big BBC stars essentially tied to various (private)production companies rather than the Beeb itself?

Dear old Hammers is demonstrating why a lot of people see the term 'military intelligence' as an oxymoron.

Going back to football, I almost hope that Boris wins because I fear for his mental health if he doesn't.
Although, any mental illness would probably be better managed by an NHs under a non-Tory administration..

I think, at this point, it's now just wilful ignorance and Stockholm syndrome. They're the politics equivalent who insist that last season was MUCH better for ITFC supporters than the preceding 5 because they've decided that Lambo/Boris is their man, no matter how bad a job he's making of it.

How is a cap on public sector salaries and, for the private sector, 'shop floor' representation and share holding at board level going to do that?
It's been a successful model for John Lewis for decades now.

It's a proposed cap for the public sector. Given your views on the public sector I'd have though you'd welcome less 'waste'..
For private firms it's proposing mandatory 'shop floor' representation on boards and at senior level. and an opportunity for those on the shop floor to hold shares.

Which is the model which John Lewis has employed successfully for years now.
