Borough lead member for neighbourhoods Arshid Mahmood said: “We have asked police for a greater presence and will approach management at the THOMAS drop-in facility to agree a process of moving people on.That’s nice. Were you happy to tolerate it before, and you are only now covering your shiny arse because someone’s gone to the papers, perhaps?
“We will no longer tolerate such behaviour and are taking action against owners of hostels and houses of multiple occupation to reinforce the message.”
A Salvation Army spokesman said: “We work with some of the most vulnerable people in society. ..Oh, please! Enough of this sophistry!
Your ‘service users’ aren’t vulnerable at all, they are the swearing, fighting, vomiting drink & drug-taking scum that are making life hell for the genuinely vulnerable children who have the misfortune to be within earshot…
… Our staff have been in contact with the local authority to ‘safe clean’ the area. We have taken steps to make service users aware of the feelings locally and to work out the best way of eradicating any problems.”Bang ‘em up until they can behave like normal people instead of animals, maybe?
