A teenager has been given a two-year ASBO banning him from parts of Sinfin and wearing gang colours.A chavtastic comment thread contains this little gem:
The order forbids 16-year-old Reuben Branford from various actions including entering certain parts of Sinfin, including the area around Asda and the housing area bordered by Grampian Way, Sinfin Lane, Redwood Road and Areleston Lane, and wearing purple or red bandanas or shoe laces or being with anyone who is wearing them in Derby.
by Eblis777Well, maybe it's just me. Can anyone else see any value in Reuben?
“If you look into Reuben's eyes, you will see his past addiction to soft drugs, his occasional use of hard drugs and his desperation to fit in to a meaningful existence. This desire to fit into something is natural and something every young boy strives for. However, if you take away the youth clubs, take away the funding for recreational resources such as land, buildings, personnel and equipment, then what are you left with? What has Sinfin got in terms of sporting facilities? Tennis courts? Football pitches? Swimming pools? Cricket fields? Activity parks? Forests to walk around in to explore mother nature at her best? No. None of these things in the right meaningful measures to entice young people away from a life of illusion such as this 'Thug Life' existence. This is not Reuben's fault, this is the government's fault for taking funds for such measures away and ploughing them into propping up financial stables made of cards. The sooner the Government realises that the real value of Britain lies more in the youth of today and less in the financial systems of yesterday, then the sooner Britain will once again become a Nation that other countries will aspire to be. God, how I miss the 'Great' in Britain.”
