Parts Of Britain 'like The Wire'

Recommended Posts

Has been for many years and predates this Labour shambles.

Woolwich, Thamesmead, Lewisham, Peckham, Camberwell etc.

Whose watch was the Moss Side trouble on I forget...ah yes, the crime-busting Tories.

I can't see either Red or Blue doing anything in the next government except lining their pockets as per normal.

They could decriminalise personal use of cannabis and halve the problems overnight, but then it's ultimately black-budget secret service controlled at the highest levels a la CIA.

I heard an argument the other day that went along the lines of Britain needs the kind of social deprivation seen in the US because of our financial model. As we expand the money supply and the gaps between rich and poor grow ever larger, we need something for the people who fall between the cracks to sit and do for their whole lives, like crystal meth for example. That way, they aren’t a drain on the benefits system and they’ll most likely die young.

Nice here, isn't it?

What kind of company do you keep? :o

Though I'm sure that it's the expected outcome of the route we seem to have chosen :(

He was a respected head-of-finance at a very respected blue-chip company. Only in his early 30s though. I expect it was hot off the wire from his city chums.

I can quite believe it. We've chosen to follow the US model, and we can see where it's leading. Not very nice at all,

I live in Aberdeen - home to the once (in)famous HAMISH_MCTAVISH.

The resource-curse Dutch-disease blighted economy of this town puts us ahead of the curve on the inevitable consequences of unfettered free-market Chicago-School economics.

I can confirm that Aberdeen is just about the most socially divided town you could imagine. 70% of it's like 'The Wire', 20% of it's like '90210'. It's the middle that gets squeezed out.

The most visible indication of the spread of hard drugs through the town is the visibility of on-street prostitution: Whereas the crack-and-smack-whores used only to ply their trade on a few streets around the docks, the red-light district now encompasses the entirety of the city-centre, and you can even be hustled for 'business' in the once-salubrious, once upper-middle-class granite-built Georgian west end, where HAMISH lives.

Crystal Meth 'probably not a good idea'
