Except perhaps for this once, I’m back from the dead, although the chances are it’s likely that I will be back again.
What has prompted this, you ask, well, my reader sent an impassioned plea a few weeks ago, desperate for shoddy grammar and the bitterness which comes with middle age.
a couple many things have bitten my not inconsiderable backside just recently, and these are just the more offensive, the continued embarrassment of poorly motivated local councillors, more interested in personal vendetta’s, the introduction of sexual orientation as something to be discussed endlessly, quite what it has to do with local governance has lost me, councillors resigning and then disappointing the community by backtracking.
Still I have to say crime is my number one irritant, right now, firstly the most contemptible aspect is local politicians inappropriate use and abuse of “Hate Crime” accusations, next for me has to be the assertion that Anne Barnes, Kent’s Police and Crime Commissioner was the candidate of Liberals in Kent, well as a party member that passed me by, and I for one thought, that since the former Police Authority had been like a poodle in its uncritical relationship with Kent Police, Anne Barnes had ruled herself out as a serious contender for the job, still its amazing what a good PR campaign can do, same old same old.
The real issue for me, as crime goes, is, without a doubt given the state of the economy and the changed social structure, is how Labour are in denial, happy having sown the seeds of todays misery, to stand on the side lines and blame the government.
Focussing on Margate Crime how depressing to see that despite having a Margate Police Task Force, crime is on the up, still you will be reassured that in this article, heroin addicts are referred to as “clients” I’d like to think that is not how Kent police see users of class a drugs but wouldn’t count on it, and finally coming back to Anne Barnes the new Kent Crime Commissioner, how lucky she must have been to find two capable police experts to help her in the post, who also coincidently happened to have been part of her election campaign.
Lastly thanks to my reader R for encouraging me to blog again.
