Guess what? Wandsworth Council can't evict a whole family from their home because the son was found guilty of shoplifting in the riot.

They and David Cameron knew that very well. Still, make a mother and her 8 year old daughter shit scared for 5 months just for a headline.

Scumbags.

That story really got to me. The sheer audacity of the Tory council to push for eviction before any conviction was appalling. Still, Tories are knee-jerking tossers when it comes to crime.

You don't need to have committed a crime to be evicted- you can be evicted for being anti-social already. I have no problem with that as a last resort. One of my friends got some street dealing fuckhead's family evicted from Spitalfields.

My problem is that Cameron and Wandsworth were quite deliberately confusing a procedure for dealing with persistently bad neighbours with the criminal law. The family weren't to know that, and were understandably scared.
