Must get back to the book, but not in the mood following blue-in-the-face meeting with an idle solicitor.
The government is proposing to fix problem families with around £110 million a year to put one person in charge of dealings with said. The estimate is 130,000 of them so this means about £800 a year on each. That’s sod all – not much mroe than the cost of one of the 200 police visits they may get a year.
My suspicion is this measure will actually create bureaucrats who will juke performance management reports on what’s going on. Louise Casey has been a failure for more than 10 years.
Gadget does the usual running down of the scum and is, of course, right. The problem here is that moral urging over the years has made no difference at all and the problem, described in history books for centuries, is getting worse.
Cameron was even saying we first had to identify these families – given they have often been occupying houses in the same locale for generations, this seems absurd. We already know who they are.
The problems are much deeper than any crass ‘putting someone in charge’ management scam can deal with. The relevant authorities have been lying about ‘excellent partnership working’ since partnership working became a buzz phrase – underneath you find the very inspector issuing this bureaucratic grease saying working with the Council is like trying to plat snot.
I’ve lost nearly all sympathy with the scumbags – as I say, Gadget is right on what their problems are. This isn’t the point. I favour a cull. The social problem is the damage they do to other people and this is immense. There is another group who cause the rest of us as much pain and moer damage – the very rich and their financial services lickspittles.
The scumbags cause pain for the rest of us of such magnitude that we broadly do everything we can not to live near them (higher mortgage) or have our children go to school with theirs. My grandson is at a school that can’t cope with its catchment from the Everglades and we are taking him out. They are using measures like collective punishments. There is bullying and most lessons are not worth much in learning terms because of disruption.
The scumbags, as any cop will tell you, know that the first line of defence is to get out a smear story on anyone complaining – what I’d like to hear more from cops is how they deal with this inevitable issue – silence when I do. The same is true across agencies – they have almost no clue on how to gauge evidence and end up leaving the complainants in the lurch – an often violent lurch. Complainants end up complaining about the service from the agencies and, surprise, surprise, get smeared to make them seem non-credible.
What’s needed is to identify the victims and provide support from that point. Moral urging fails on the immoral – whether scumbags or banksters (you won’t believe what they are doing until the next collapse – coming soon). And victims need to be contacted so that there treatment at the hands of cops, townhallsters, courts and others can be collated and used as a genuine performance measure. Many cops would welcome this, knowing there are some knocks to take.
The current system is so crap you can’t even get noise stopped and includes such provision that this is OK if generated by certain ethnicities. If you are ill and likely to be seriously made worse by intrusive noise the law says – well fuck you. The agencies will lie and do complainants serious harm to protect their own incompetence and organisational performance – to the extent of conspiring to false prosecutions. Politicians are worse and want to pretend their system and people are working.
Both Cameron and Gadget are a sell-out on this one. What we need is someone with the balls to take the lid off and design something that works from the ground up. Or give me and Gadget 00 licence and declare free-range on the shits. Horrible as it is, a cull would do a lot to fix estates, housing, schools, NHS and many other problems. Gadget might not join me in carrying a ‘banksters next’ placard.
What’s needed is not identification of the scum – I could organise most of that in a day (local cops know). It’s the full extent of the problem and how it affects others that needs identification and sorting. Fuck the scum – make them live partioned lives on trailer parks with barbed wire round them and a strict curfew. They are beyond cure. Start building these colonies now after reading Gadget’s riot act and move them on first breach.
Their houses will need a lot spending on them to enable decent families to have a home, and we could organise this as a youth employment-skilling project.
The cost of these scumbags will exceed any figure we can put on it. The cost of non-policing them for others is vast, We don’t police the banksters either and they are out to cost us democracy. My guess is they are engineering another collapse and using a combination of derivatives trading and bankruptcy law in a plot to steal bail-out money and, indeed, any other assets they can grab. We aren’t policing this either.
The gist of the bankster scheme involves bankruptcy rules on hypothecated debt which all banks to grab any assets ahead of other creditors (including us). We may be seeing such a scam at JP Morgan now in the MF Global collapse. It’s sort of this – that in a world in which all go bankrupt those first in line for what’s left end up winners.
My guess, if the truth was out, is that we wouldn’t want to live with either scumbags or banksters. All this needs more than some designated bureaucrat to fix. Gadget’s moralising won’t work on either end – and what would a Gedget do when the right thing isn’t protecting its mortgage-paying ability? I suspect this morality is one and the same with the scrote and bankster. Self at all costs – and it’s costing our democracy.
