Yes, this thread has moved on but, for once, I didn't want to shoot from the hip.
I am seeing this from my two-states, one problem perspective and am firmly coming to the conclusion that toxic, swaggering masculinity is pretty damned close to the heart of the problem.
Whether Muslim, culturally Turkish, wugga buggas, or thoroughbred gammon, it makes no difference. Young, irresponsible, princeling males are posing a real threat, on a macro level, to the healthcare infrastructures and, locally, also within their own families.
I have alluded on here to it in the past month of two. Now I am prepared to stick my neck out a little further because I am living in fear of groups of often Turkish-heritage males, congregating on every second corner, scratching their bollocks, and swooning at girls' arses. It is not too difficult to imagine them swaggering under a cloud of eager, viral spores.
The message needs, in my view, to be targeted at mothers and separately the fathers who can look up and down the generations and deal with the kids in their own way and in their own vernacular.
The central message has to be, and this will ruffle a few feathers, akin to the early AIDS messaging, "Don't kill granny with ignorance."
