'CRIME down' headed a report in the Mercury on October 16. Only 13,885 crimes reported from 2007/2008 for North Somerset.
We should be grateful for such "wonderful and exciting" news, if only we believed them. In reality, I believe the lawless situation is far worse.
Within the last two weeks, in the area where I live there have been police raids on drug centres, thefts from local shops (the Co-op in Whitecross Road) and cars vandalised including my own.
Cars race along Clevedon Road into Brighton Road at speeds that would be at home on a racing circuit and you take your life in your hands when you attempt to cross the railway bridge there. But then, we live in a country now that seems to protect the rights of the law breaker, the disruptive school pupil and increasingly the immigrant criminal. We've lost the plot as a nation!
