22 now known to have lost their lives, a lot of who will be children. Just what can be done to stop this sickening terrorism?. So easy for politicians to say we must go on with our lives as usual but they themselves are well protected. If this was an attack by an Isis inspired terrorist,then the Muslim community in Britain must do more to root these people out ! . Rip all who have lost their lives and thoughts to all the injured and to the families of all affected by such an horrific act.

Oh my god , just woke up to this. Just terrible , poor people. What's to be done about these monsters? They blow themselves up along with innocents so hard to stop. R.i.p all the victims and my thoughts go out to all the families. Makes me weep the way the world is.

when children are used as a weapon of warfare it's up to adults of this world to step back, reflect on what they have created and let young people decide humanities way forward.

love and respect to all in Manchester this morning and all children out there dreaming of creating a world full of pace.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 23rd May 2017 7:45am

I think they've got to start hitting the family's of these monsters. You must have an inkling about your child's behaviour and notice changes going on and report them...Dilly's right if this is a Muslim terrorist then the police have got to get more information from the community. Another thing whenever these attacks have happened it's usually revealed that they were known to the police, well blow Human rights if there is a sniff of any such behavior then put them somewhere under lock and key, Guantanamo bay type of place in my opinion.

Unfortunately, it's a major step backwards within the Manchester region. If it is related to the Muslim community, after all the work that has been put into multi-culturalism , I fear angry Northerners might retaliate this time because it was clearly directed at the young .

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 23rd May 2017 8:40am

The Muslim community need to wake up if they want to live in harmony in this country. There may be reprisals which can be understood when our children are now being targeted.No it may not be the best way forward but what are ordinary folk supposed to do,just sit back and take the murder of innocent kids in their stride ?

From 25 facts about Ariana

5. I wish every day were Halloween.

6. I have had a sick obsession with horror movies since I was little.

7. My mom thought I'd grow up to be a serial killer because I wore Halloween masks around the house.

16. I love theme parks and look forward to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights all year.

Makes me wonder if these suicide **stards specifically choose their targets..

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 23rd May 2017 9:43am

I too have never heard of her Dilly..well I think they will have to increase the security around venues like this, football grounds etc and not let anyone in without going through scanners like airport's have and searched , no one should be allowed near the place no matter what without this happening. No waiting around in the foyers or where ever. Sad it has to be like this and know it will cost alot if money but artist's and management have to take less profit.

Dreadful - but lets just hope it was just one mentally sick weirdo . I so hope its not a Muslim, because I doubt Manchester will take this lying down . Totally agree we need more information of potential terrorists from the community , and punishments for those proven to have witheld such knowledge.We need to infiltrate the communities more too, sod human rights.

Agreed, but Andy Burham as new Mayor of Manchester has just announced there will be a vigil tonight. The latest way of appeasing peoples anger it would seem. If we get blown up, ...have a vigil.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 23rd May 2017 11:11am

We are constantly being told that these people bring their culture and traditions to enrich our country, well I've yet to see it,if murdering and maiming women and children and raping young girls is part of that culture then it is not wanted here, as some have pointed out a lot of what goes on is common knowledge among their communities and they are being protected, and the reluctance of the authorities to deal with it is there for all to see, political correctness gone mad.

I happened to catch an episode of cant pay take it away, whilst clicking around the tv channels, which involved an Asian car dealer who owed money, he threatened the bailiffs with violence, he bragged he could have gangs of people there within minutes, which happened, they turned up assaulted the bailiffs in front of the police, they obstructed the police they assaulted the police, they were eventually arrested but were later released with no charges being made, they showed nothing but contempt and arrogance toward the police, basically you cant touch us, and from what I saw they were right, a law unto themselves.

In one way you could argue that DD's comment, which I happen to agree with, just offers a view to those who may want to be considering it, as to why such attacks might be happening. It doesnt mean in ANY way we condone such attacks AT ALL .Understanding and condoning are in no way the same.

Bang on Dilly. Accepting that your Govt (amongst others)whether with the best intentions or not, has participated in actions that have caused huge bitterness in another country , doesnt mean you automatically have a carte blanche 'love' as you put it Ed ,for the whole culture of that country . You dont even have to like the people or their culture to understand/accept that some groups in their country do have some grounds to disike our interference. Thats just thinking fairly. None of that is 'making excuses' for the dreadful terrorism that is taking place though , because thats just a small number of warped extremists , and for them, there are no excuses. Just for the record, I dont believe in Multiculturalism , in my book, you want to come and live here, worship who you want , but you accept our way of life and integrate, or you push off.

Heard Adrian Chiles on radio this morning talking to a young girl and mum who had been at the concert and asking where they were etc etc when the bomb went off . He then asked the little girl in his usual drole if the concert was any good...doh. He was either trying to be clever and divert the little girls mind away from the atrocity or just insensitive.

p.s. I never heard of her either..just did a bit of research.

I don't know how tags work but
What gets someone onto a suspect terrorist watch list.
If there is a shred of evidence why not "tag" them with a device that sets of some sort of alarm as they near a certain distance of a packed venue or other.Ban haversacks or have a "cloakroom" of sorts where they could be examined by a scanner prior to releasing one as they do at airports.
At these concerts you're not allowed to take bottles in (might affect any profits off selling their own stuff inside).
minimum wage security?

I think they will seriously have to upgrade security at these things in future.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 23rd May 2017 5:56pm

The bombs weren't in the concert hall, they were in areas before the search area.

The bombs were triggered at the end so that maximum people would be in the area of the bombs.

People are tagged basically by their known locations, known associates, patterns of travel, purchases and patterns of expenditure/income.

This is gleaned from phone usage, banks, foreign travel, number plate tracking and facial recognition.

Mainstream news will not report this:

http://www.mcb.org.uk/manchester-attack-muslim-council-of-britain-statement/

On a local level: a friend status' on Facebook

I have several Muslim regulars at the shop. My favourite is a young woman whose pregnancy I followed since we opened. She brought her baby in a couple of weeks ago to say hello. She's tiny & beautiful & very timid & today she seemed particularly so. I asked how she was & she was shaking & said 'scared'. She'd been shouted at in the street on her way. And do you know what, she kept saying 'I know they're scared of us, I understand'. And I said no, no, don't feel bad for these people, and I kept saying sorry & tried not to let her see I was nearly crying. I walked her to her car, she was terrified. And this, and worse, will have been repeated across the country, the world, today. While others mourn their lost children, this hate helps no one. I feel profoundly depressed on every level.

From what I understand from what you say this young women was out shopping the very next morning, did she not think that emotions were going to be at the highest level? . Yes she may be a good person but children had just been murdered in the name of her religion. A religion that is so wrong on many other levels apart from the terrorism. I personally have seen no evidence of the Muslim community wanting to integrate.I have seen streets in Birkenhead that are now completely occupied by the Muslim community, is this a sign of integration? A young girl of 8 was killed at that concert so of course people are angry and I would like to think even you can understand that anger.

Hate is probably the first step to radicalization.
A Mr Dick helped a young girl of fourteen, "She came out of the smoke shredded with a plastic bag melted to her head" said.
" anybody who makes political capital or hate out of this is as bad as the bomber"I agree with him and invite a couple of posters from yesterday to read them again and explain to me your contribution to sorting things out with no facts to hand.( I so hope it is not a Muslim) What difference would it make to the eight year old and the other poor soles.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 24th May 2017 11:05am



Maybe we should all be looking further ahead. According to the latest news, this suicide bomber returned from Libya a few days ago.

He has performed an evil act, why should we feel compassion towards others of the same mindset ? There are plenty of them in Libya, and nobody is doing anything to stop this so called humanitarian crisis of boat loads arriving on our shores. Not in North Africa, not in southern Mediterranean countries, not anywhere in Europe and not here. We have all been badly let down, for what would now seem far too long and now the children are caught up in it.

Human error against suicide bombers....= nil point .

I am thoroughly disgusted at ALL our leaders.....leaders of what ,I have to ask ? That is where my anger is, no one listened to common sense for fear of being branded racist.

The keypoint is the Muslim religion, some of the ideals of the allegedly moderate Muslim religion are the same as those of Isis, maybe not as radical but still they have some of the same goals, that is why the moderates won't do anything other than give lip service, they wring their hands and give their condolences over the killings, but they will not stand up and condemn their aims outright, because they see that as betraying their religion.

No I never granny, I am guessing it was condemnation of the bombing and condolences to those that lost their lives and their families and the injured, no more than any decent human being would do, ulterior motive would also be to deflect away any blame or attacks on the local Muslim community or the mosque.

Vigils, demonstrations of solidarity may not appear to 'do much, on the surface' but they do. By communities coming together there is opposition to the alt- right movement and their twisted ideologies.

I understand that most anti-immigration/ anti- Muslim type people are fearful, 'traditional' in their outlook. (I am aware that the pitchforks may come out if I suggest that they could be brainwashed by the media *cough -so I won't -cough)*

However, alt-right groups capitalise on such horrific Events- these groups are just pure evil. I'm not going to list the 'groups' and 'divisions of said groups or report on their Social Media recent activities but they have been 'dining out' on Monday nights Horror.

This is why communities stand together to oppose them, this lot appearing in Manchester for instance:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...r-attack-protest-shut-down-a7752201.html

This lot are coming to Liverpool- so, they say- on June 3rd. Heard it before, on here when it was the White Man March- 'oh, just let them have their march and platform' etc but there are a lot of dis-satisfied (un-educated) young people who are dis-enfranchised and will take their 'Muslims steal all the jobs'typical bollocks and join them.

The 'gormless and un-educated' are just fodder- of course, the same applies to IS and the likes...we cannot let fascism rise again #NoPasaran

Only just saw this, Dilly. Yes, of course, I'm angry- livid. Very upset about the loss of life, like everybody. However, I do not understand how people show hatred to a woman because others have murdered in the name of religion, that she happens to share? We never see headlines 'Christian Joe Bloggs- rapist' or 'Atheist Joanne Bloggs-caught shop-lifting'. When white C of E....or whatever....have committed atrocoties I have never 'apologised' on their behalf- why should peaceful loving Muslims?

To be honest (grab your pitchforks, folks) I feel un-easy about the 'child victim' angle as portrayed in mainstream media. Sure, Adriana Grande appeals to kid-kids but she also appeals to young adults, too?! (and pervy old dads)??

With regard to your comment about integration- yes, there are difficulties, I know that there are 'communities' housed in close proximity to each other and I don't have the answers. My understanding is 'fear'- Muslim people fearing us because of what they think they know about us - 'we hate them, we do not tolerate them'- That description does not describe me, atall.

Was in HomeBargains today with Plus, daughter and grandaaughter checking out the Pringles on offer...a Muslim lady came over to check out the Offer- did not for 00.1% second think she was wearing a bomb belt

Well said Cools. We don't have to bend to forced public anecdotes making us appear to be anti anything. Too many people are forced to keep quiet through wrongly perceived interpretation, and it's time our thoughts were also heard.
This case now just shows the degree of greatfulness there is in the 2nd generation refugees. Not the first time is it ?

Casper, with regards to the Didsbury Mosque.

The director of the centre’s trustees, Mohammad el-Khayat, then said: “The horrific atrocity that occurred in Manchester on Monday night has shocked us all. This act of cowardice has no place in our religion or any other religion.

“We encourage anyone who may have information about the individual involved to contact the police without any delay so they can assist with their investigation.”

He expressed anger at some reports of Abedi’s links with the mosque.

“Some media reports have reported that the bomber worked at the Manchester Islamic Centre. This is not true. We express concern that a very small section of the media are manufacturing stories.”
..............................

Last paragraph seemed to be the main message , repeated more than once to affirm that this bomber did not 'work' at the mosque. Of course he could have been a prayer man (don't know their full name) in the mosque and he obviously attended otherwise they would have mentioned that too.

I think there is a general fear within the communities, and any attempts to minimise the possible threats will take their course. Who can blame them , but with that scenario, why do they never outwardly condemn these individual people who are not in fact following the Muslim faith, which by all accounts is very strict, and admit the truth ? These animals have to be lapsed Muslims, with an inbuilt hatred for society. We don't need them on our streets.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 25th May 2017 10:48am

I've got into a heated debate with people on Facebook about this. As a liberal atheist I have no more time for Islam than any other religion. It's all guff to me. Many would claim that Islam is a religion of peace which is being hijacked by extremists. Unfortunately, Islam is not a religion of peace, it's a religion of barbarity. Take for instance:
https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/wife-beating.aspx
or indeed
https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/homosexuality.aspx

Fundamentalist Islam is mental poison and armed superstition. Parents pass this on to their children. The cycle of ignorance continues in the 21st century. What is the answer ? We could demolish all mosques in the UK, seize their assets and give them to the NHS. That would probably just create further war and bloodshed.

I wish peace and enlightenment through science on the Muslim communities in the UK. Let them abandon their poisonous nonsense and come and have a drink with us.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 25th May 2017 11:27am

My granddaughter and son in law were close to the bomb when it went off and although they were unhurt, were pretty traumatised by what they saw.

I wish some of our politicians would take some responsibility for this though. (None of them do) Right or wrong, it is a response to things we have done with the Americans in the middle east and is the inevitable result of these military exercises. We are in a war, and bad things happen in wars. In my book it is the politician's primary duty not to indulge in them. Wars are failures of diplomacy in the end.

Finally, I can't see why the pictures that the USA published should have been kept secret. They are not images one would wish to see, but I can't see how secrecy helps anyone. Also, given that they were secret, I can't see why they should have been shared with the Americans anyway. Do we receive pictures of shootings in drug stores in America?

Perhaps someone will explain.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 25th May 2017 11:53am

Just been mentioned on the news that 5 terrorist attacks have been foiled in the UK since the Houses of Parliament attack in March and 18 since 2013. That would indicate to me why they don't want intelligence sharing leaked. The New York Times also gave the name of this latest terrorist before our own police, and the reason our own released it so soon in this country.

They have also announced that the UK police have atm stopped sharing intelligence with USA.

Taking those failed attacks into consideration, people do have a complete right to be very angry and voice their opinions, so long as they don't turn physical which can easily happen. IMO.
The general public have been quenched over and over again and those responsible of the crimes know there is no retribution. My personal opinion is to send their family members and extended families back to the land of origin we need to forget the human rights issues in those countries, as it would seem, not too many considered the human rights of any who have succumbed to such attacks, that might make them think twice and it might not.

Mouthing off against Allah, will only make them more determined, that is the biggest insult and greatest cause of anger within the Islamic Faith, so be warned ! However, I think some are getting confused with followers of Islam and those who pretend to be of the Islamic faith ! They are killers.

Whatever is going on right now, it's like a cancer. War ? yes Id' say so.

Having read the bible several times and tried to read the Koran (an English translation) . The bible is at least quite interesting and poetical and mystical in places in contrast to the Koran which was a very difficult and boring read. Imams wouldn't consider an English translation of the Koran as "Holy"

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 26th May 2017 8:13am

Did anyone watch Question Time last night ? Interesting input from a young Muslim woman about how there are Saudi funded Mosques which should be stopped in her mind. Saudi's practice the Wahhabism branch on Islam. Nazir Afzal the Former Chief Prosecutor for North West England agreed with the young woman, and I find it quite ironic that when all groups are trying to find a reason or reasons , hoping to find a possible answer to these dreadful means to an end for IS,and yet this man has not brought such knowledge into the public domain, it has taken a young woman on Question Time to raise the issue.
There was a petition for the Government opposing this involvement of Saudis just last year. Runs for 6 months and only got 10,000 votes. Had any of us known more or even known about the petition, things could have been different on the matter.

The Saudis probably have one of the most strict and extreme models of Islam, worth reading this article , printed just 7 days ago. It helps to explain what I and maybe others didn't know.
Time to put an end to Saudi funding, and bringing in Saudi Imams to teach in the Mosques !!!

I was aware of this granny, and the largest percentage of Mosques in the UK are Saudi funded, but sadly nothing will change this whilst our government are blowing in their ear, oil, arms sales, are obviously more important than the well being of UK citizens and the human rights of Saudis, a good start from the government would be to stop the funding for these Mosques, stop any one who has fought for or supported Isis from returning to the UK, and round up and deport the 3,000 suspected terrorists and any one who is associated with them, seeing as they have declared a jihad upon us,
some of them being UK subjects logically speaking could be charged with treason.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 27th May 2017 11:11am



How about banning the hijab ? Would that make a difference to strict Muslims, to a point of not wanting to be here in this country.
Some wear it some don't, so I assume it relates to which ever branch of Islam they belong to.
I still don't understand the reason for it, said to be a modesty thing and they should not display their beauty to men other than husbands etc.! Modesty ?? Why then do they plaster their eyes and lips with make-up ?


A definite ban should be placed on the niqab, and burka IMO. There again we'd have the Shami Chakrabartis' of this world calling the tune once again.
We are consistently being put under more and more pressure to abide by their rules until our own laws will be outlawed and I don't believe they should have any rulings in law . When did the Christians have the laws changed for the purpose of incorporating the faith ? If anything it's gone the other way.
Over fifty per cent of UK population have no religious beliefs and ceasing to be a Christian country. Like a house, when someone moves out another one moves in !

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 27th May 2017 11:33am

Well the niqab and burka basically wraps a wife or a daughter up in a package, maybe it should wear a sign, saying to be used only by the owner, it makes them the property of one man, it highlights the insecurity and the mistrust of Muslim men, a throwback to medieval times akin to a chasity belt, if it is not required to be worn as part of the Muslim religion then it/they should be banned.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 27th May 2017 3:14pm

Another point to ponder are the different languages. No wonder the education system is struggling, as there are over 300 different languages spoken in British schools ! 1.1 million children with 311 dialects. In some schools English speaking children are in the minority. What sort of drain on recourses must that be ?
The parents might be able to speak some English, but the children should be able to as well, or not allowed into the education system. Maybe that's hard, but could be a simple solution if migrants want their whole families to live here. Teach them English before they arrive.
Also, foreign students from EU don't pay their student loans back if they should go back to their own country. Students from outside EU have to pay for their University education. Thinking about that, if the University students loans are disposed of, as Jeremy Corbyn has decreed, and the Universities need more money, then I suggest the outcome might be less UK students and more foreign (outside the EU) born students to fill the void in Universities funds . Although I'm sure someone will put me right on that !
More foreigners, equals more housing, and more people on benefits , e.g children with certain disabilities from foreign born families such as autism ! We pay it all .

In Light of the tragic events in Manchester, Wirral Deen Centre held an open Public Solidarity Meeting today in support of the victims and their families but also to show unity within our local community.

This meeting was very well attended by a cross-section of society. All communities were represented.

#WeStandTogether #HopeNotHate

Yes , it is far too soon. People haven't had funerals yet. But hey. always down to the selfish wanting to have their name printed in the book of memories and tributes.
To be honest, I've heard enough about Manchester and how bloody marvellous everyone has been this week, and the media have used it to their advantage too. Yes they been marvellous, but why go on and on and on about it. The rest have NOT suffered like all those involved. We need a bit of breathing space for the families ,the rescuers, the medical teams. They must all be suffering beyond belief . why make a party out of something so horrendous ?

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 10:52am

£7BN a year to police drugs in this country , more than the social security budget.

Do any of you remember the days when, everyone thought it would be something that would go away of it's own accord. Next came the crack down, next came the can't keep on top of the situation , now it's almost on the cards to make it legal.

There are huge similarities to terrorism in this country.
They thought it would go away, they didn't think it would arrive on our shores, they didn't put any preventative measure is place. Then they got worried, but for pc. reasons, couldn't say anything racist or react against religious institutions.
Then they realised, and decided 'prevent' was the answer, inclusion was the answer , educate and give them jobs is the answer.
Well, sorry but no one has the answer, even now. I hope just like the drugs scene, the terrorism is not too late for a positive outcome.

Can't help agreeing with UKIP, (as much as I can't stand the man)..... ban the burka as a start ! (it won't happen though, as politicians are still too frightened to put their name on the line, and Corbyn is about to fling the doors wide open again given half the chance)
One could actually believe there is a plot afoot in this country to destroy everything and then become the island prison service of Europe.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 11:05am

Here here Granny, quite agree...personally i think Drugs should be given out to drug users at clinics and a suchlike, still hammer home the message but these people will get them one way or the other, usually robbing and mugging old folk. I hate the way these drug barons make their money. I know people are against such a move but as vyou say it's not working now. Yep I don't want to see people walking around in our country hidden behind robes and just eyes staring out, quite unnerves me.vThey remind me of The Dementors from the Harry Potter books and films.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 11:30am

Yes drugs should be given out free, but only in overdose's.
Posted By: diggingdeeper

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 12:45pm

Most violence caused by drugs is because they are off-their-head not because they are after money.

Alcohol is a drug much the same as many others ie addictive, unpredictable and destructive.

Would you really give alcoholics free alcohol to feed their addiction? Why think differently about other drugs?
Posted By: cools

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 2:35pm

But they need money in fist place DD to buy the stuff off the dealer's, and they don't care how they get it!

Isn't there extra money given to alcoholics when on benefits because of their addiction??

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 4:19pm

Well it seems to me its already being given free, by extra payment to buy it...
Posted By: diggingdeeper

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 4:48pm

You're doing a Theresa May on me, would YOU give free alcohol to alcoholics?

There is a very easy way to reduce the drugs problem to an insignificant level but there are too many people with a conflict of interest. Just confiscate it all, shut down as many dealers and supply routes as you can, targeting street level. It will very quickly (in days) out price it's availability to most of the anti-social users.

Unfortunately the police won't do this because it will lead to a 60% reduction in the number of police we need.
Posted By: cools

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 5:22pm

Ooh Teresea May constantly on your mind DD, are you trying to emulate your hero JC?? I as a single person cannot put in place anything that would help the drugs or for that matter alco holic problems, but I can pass an opinion and if I felt threatened or troubled by an alcoholic and drink was nearby , yes let them have it. In truth I don't know what the answer is to these problems but it just doesn't seem to be working at the moment and the drugs and drug gangs just seem to be getting bigger and more violent.
Posted By: diggingdeeper

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 5:57pm

Theresa May is certainly on my mind, keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Cameron and May have possibly driven this country up a irreversible financial dead-end. I didn't fully realise the extent of it until running some figures last night.

Giving drugs to druggies solves absolutely nothing, the amount of violence will increase not decrease. A lot of druggies when they are not completely off their skulls keep their heads down because they want to be able to get their next fix, if they know they can get their next fix regardless, it changes the whole pattern of self-control.

The majority of methadone that is handed out is not used to help people to get off other drugs, its used as a stop-gap before they can get their next fix of the real stuff. It is helping them maintain continuity of drug use. Yes, in a small number of cases some druggies use it instead of other drugs most of the use is not that.

Just get the price of drugs out of reach and the whole problem of drugs and associated crime will be resolved. Stuff trying to get "Mr Big", hit it at street level, Mr Big will soon be out of business, he can't instantly rebuild trustworthy reliable supply chains overnight.

Its not difficult to find the street level dealers, ask any cabby, follow any smack-head, track mobiles and payphone use.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 6:41pm

DD I don't know how you think taking a street level dealer of the streets would solve anything, they would be replaced in hours. The only real way to stop it would be to stop it getting into the country in the first place and how that could be done I don't know. I would think there are too many corrupt people in high places that could be being bought for turning a blind eye or passing information to the big drug barons.
Posted By: diggingdeeper

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 8:49pm

Not in hours, it doesn't work like that, there is quite a bit of money involved and needs trust to be built up. The supply will be suddenly and severely limited, trust breaks down as well which helps.

Its much harder to stop the top end than the bottom end, just confiscate and keep confiscating, you don't even need to lock up the street level dealers, if they lose drugs its harder for them to re-stock, if they lose them twice there will be virtually no chance.

The price shoots up very fast when supplies are threatened, if its done as a program the price will totally skyrocket, addicts have a choice of stringing out or going on a program.

There are loads of low level dealers the police must know about, there are many are by main roads where you see the stream of druggies and taxis through the day and night.

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 31st May 2017 11:23pm



Precisely as I mentioned. No one did anything, and the little guy grew into the big guy. Then they forgot about the little guy and chased the big guy, who got bigger and out of control, at the same time the little guys went forth and multiplied. Until the kids on the bikes were involved, racing around the housing estates and we find it in schools and teachers dabble and police and politicians snort cocaine and it is in all society.
The children of today will, without doubt, be the greatest of users and your ideas of control DD, are not fast enough or efficient enough to even scratch the surface or put a time scale on such an operation of success.

The world is now awash with one drug or another and the fight is over.

What's that got to do with smack heads ?

I must also remind you that almost 15 yrs of Labour Government actually destroyed this country ,along with rules from the EU which we had to abide by, and still do.
2010 to 2015 was a Coalition Government, 2015 to 2016 was Cameron, 2016 to 2017 (less than 12 months) was Mrs May, so how you can blame them for drug related problems I am not really sure .
Maybe we should blame Blair for encouraging University education for as many as possible, where the places are rife with drugs, and how whole streets of houses were bought up by outsiders like people from London and Manchester( foreigners who don't pay interest on mortgages) where families had previously lived, but were then rented out for student accommodation with guaranteed income and investments. Thus making the housing market shortage for families and homes more expensive, resulting in not enough homes to house the 3 million migrants he allowed in from the EU , or our own families who were last on the list. Communities destroyed and part time work to keep the unemployment figures down and give opportunities to the EU migrants for employment. Traitor ! Once the bubble burst, he disappeared and swanned off into the moonlight taking his millions and wifey with him after buying numerous properties before he fled.
HE , had every chance in the book to make a success of this country and he failed badly, don't make the Tories or any other party the scapegoats for the things that went so drastically wrong under his and Browns watch. (of which we are still picking up the bits)
Foodbanks introduced in UK in 2004 are in many countries , in 2014 France had twice as many as UK, and Germany were feeding 1.5 million people per day. Another political tool to step nearer bloody Kibbutzism.... i.e. living collectively.

Posted By: dustymclean

Re: Manchester Arena Explosion. - 1st Jun 2017 10:55am

The low level dealers are usually users, and are being dealt with in the community.They get a couple of unannounced visits a week or are asked their whereabouts on a random basis and told to stay there until verified with a visit.when they fit an MO for a burglary they have to prove they are not the person who committed the offence. Forensics usually prove them liars and guilty. The only thing you could do to stop it is lock them up and throw away the key.Yes they are known to the police, who put them in front of a judge on a regular basis.The comment about getting rid of 60% of the police force is farcical.An answer to everything solutions to nowt.
