Tough (Luck) On Crime, Tough (Luck) On The Causes Of Crime?
Of all Tony Bliar's empty soundbites, the "Tough on Crime" one rings particularly hollow.
Mind you, when you look at the example that he and his NuLiebore colleagues have set the nation, you can hardly be surprised that they have to fiddle the official statistics to try and pretend there is not a massive increase in criminal activity.
Bribery, corruption, assaulting the public, not buying rail tickets, claiming for phantom mortgages, employing illegal immigrants, murdering an inconvenient scientist, mortgage fraud, misuse of public office, election rigging, warmongering, and badger-watching.
But we'd better not try to name and shame them as it would infringe the fucking human rights.
