I read the area has youth unemployment at something like 50% and it's not like it's in the middle of nowhere? Also youth services has had 70% slashed from its budget, it's the kind of area that the Tories will always bleat why do these people vote Labour (That's if they vote anyone), why do they have such a mistrust of us?
Well they've again answered themselves, but they will willfully ignore that this is down to poor facilities, poor education, poverty, unemployment and most important of all Trust. They will claim its "Gangs" and "Ferals" like they even bloody understand what the word means.

He said Tottenham had a bad reputation for drugs, with very few prospects for jobs, but not everyone behaved like the dealers and addicts.
"I'm from Tottenham, but I go to uni, I made myself good and got a job," he said.
"But if I wear like a hoody and walk in the road, they'll just call you, check you and search you - that's a breach of your human rights."
and if that is the case then
