Credit where it's due department

Having made mock of Hammersmith council over the apparent pub crawl at the council tax payers expense, they have come up with the makings of quite a good idea: "A team of 27 hand-picked beat officers is to be put on the streets of Shepherds Bush to drive the yobs, thieves and muggers out of town, and Hammersmith & Fulham Council is looking for a sheriff to lead them".

Admittedly sheriff would not appear to be an elected post, but it is a start. There is also this jaw dropper buried in the report: "We will be the first council in the UK to put local patrols on the streets, day and night, every day of the year". What?!

And of course that is prime time for an awful lot of crime, is it not?

In Manchester the Police are commiting half of it . They ran the "workersin the sex industry" out of KingsCross. Now they are in Islington . You cannot solve crime by vague harrassment ,it can only be determined engagement with the legal system , finding the flaws and solving them

No one seems to want to try that
