Bliars "respect" agenda

#1
So the same arrsehole who let his son get p!ssed up in Leicester Square is lecturing us on parenting, and appointing an alcoholic lunatic as the overseer of this programme!

The only person worse than Blair for lectures on parenting would be Margaret Hodge, who would want us to hand over our kids to paedos, sorry to the council.

Tony Blair yesterday placed control of his "respect agenda" in the hands of an adviser who praised binge drinking, threatened to "deck" Downing Street officials and boasted how she liked to get "hammered".

Louise Casey, 38, the former director of the Home Office's anti-social behaviour unit, is to head a new taskforce building respect in the community.

Louise Casey: 'Doing things sober is no way to get things done'
Just a few weeks ago, she caused outrage with a speech to police chiefs in which she suggested that ministers might perform better if they "turn up pissed".

She added: "Doing things sober is no way to get things done." She also said: "I suppose you can't binge drink any more. I don't know who bloody made that up. It's nonsense."

And she claimed: "There is an obsession with evidence-based policy. If No 10 says bloody evidence-based policy to me one more time I'll deck them one and probably get unemployed."

Witnesses said some members of the 300-strong audience at the private event organised by the Home Office and the Association of Chief Police Officers in Stratford-upon-Avon in June so objected to her remarks that they walked out in disgust.

However, after apologising for the outburst, which she claimed to be "light-hearted", Miss Casey remained in post.

Her tasks as "respect tsar" include "working together on the neighbourhood renewal and anti-social behaviour agendas, highlighting respect for others and respect for the community" and "encouraging respect for public servants and services".

The new unit will have about 30 staff and will answer to Mr Blair and Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary.

Blair calls for better parenting

Respect for other people must be learnt within families first, said Tony Blair as he launched a new drive against bad parenting and anti-social behaviour.

In his first speech since his summer holiday, Mr Blair called for change in the UK's culture as well as new laws.

Mr Blair announced plans to extend the use of orders telling parents how to deal with their unruly children.

But the Tories and Lib Dems say new laws on alcohol sales will add to anti-social behaviour problems.

Under plans to be outlined in detail in November, housing officers and local anti-social behaviour teams will be added to the list of agencies which can apply for parenting orders.

Speaking in Watford, Mr Blair said the orders were currently only used once a child had committed a crime or been expelled from school.

Under the new plans, law enforcement agencies could intervene earlier once children showed signs of beginning to "go off the rails", he said.

"The importance of the family is that it's in the family that we have to come to terms with the idea of give and take and respect for other people," argued Mr Blair.

A new government task force on the "Respect" agenda is being set up. It will be headed by Louise Casey, former national director of the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit.

The Anti-Social Behaviour Unit will continue its work.

A Home Office spokesman insisted the new task force would not duplicate its work but instead have a broader remit and work include officials from across government.

The prime minister has made respect a major theme of his final term of office.

Mr Blair stressed the picture on crime was not all bleak but a small minority could cause problems for whole communities.

Critics of the policy question whether the state can or should tell people how to raise their children.

No change to our Policing policies!

Just take back little Johnny Hoodie back to 12 Chav Ave and get the usual abuse from the 16 year old sister as their parents are down the pub!

It's an irresponsible attempt to get support on the back of this crazy idea that the youth of today are somehow a threat to society as we know it. We love to have people to blame don't we? Blair does it to keep the Daily Mail and the rest happy and to make out he's tough - excellent for garnering votes from middle England. The whole thing's a huge red herring or an exaggeration at best! The vast majority of young people are sensible, intelligent and they do us proud. They're our future and we should help them, not vilify them.

Why on earth does Bliar continue to give Louise Casey responsible positions? Apart from being a loud-mouthed, common, fat munter she was useless when put in charge of the Homelessness Directorate, and just what has she achieved in her job as head of the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit?

Her own examples of loutish behaviour show that this appointment is just another example of Neue Arbeit cronyism. The only thing that's surprising is that Lord Watson didn't get the job.

Where do you spouyt your sh1t from?

An ivory tower? :D

Try telling that to the millions of normal people who have their lives blighted by chavs, neds, neets and cheeky little barstewards with no respect for anyone!

Trust me i know. I witnessed what could have been a scene from 'dukes of hazard' in my street on friday night. At 2am a gang of 30-40 'yoofs' came sprinting down the street, jumping on cars, smashing bottles and causing a nuisance. The best part was the yoofs scattering like flys from a roled up paer when the police car and van chasing them came flying along the footpath and 'caught air' after leaving the pavement resulting a most satisfying hail of sparks :D As a plus side they caught about 10 of them and hauled them of to their parents homes.

Just another night in quiet middle england then? NO a normal weekend in a sink estate! :evil:

The problem is that Bliar spouts all this crap and it means nothing. His missus (the same one who "understands" suicide bombers) will jump on any human rights bandwagon in response to supposed human rights infringements. The prosecution system does bugger-all, and the Mail on Sunday reckons there are thousands of bail absconders in Scotland - some of whom are suspected of violent crimes.

The criminal justice system punishes only those who are "normal" ie. who have a job and reputation to lose, and is of no deterrence to antisocial scum.

Gods, wht is the world coming to?

I agree with Frenchpersons Post almost entirely.

Okay, it's late, I'm pretty drunk, but even then I feel slightly .... soiled.


True, FP, most "youth" are pretty good, if my Kids and their friends (and all at their schools) are anything to go by.

then again, I live in Surey, which kept the comp/Grammar School split, which seems to have helped.

I have no doubt that the majority of kids are alright, but it's when pompous twats like french person come on here and try to pretend there is no problem.

Despite that, labours approach is still a heap of steaming donky poo!

One final question to all members, Are these current problems in society a direct repercussion of the thatcher era and the continued (if not accelerated) erosion of societal values under 8yrs of labour?

I read the same opinions on this board, in the papers and listen to many people expressing the same sentiments. If there are so many people who feel the same way about what has happened in this country why hasn't something been done about it?

Mr PVR - I have to take you up on your scurrilous suggestion that Mrs 'Froglike' C Bliar 'jumps on any human rights bandwagon'. This is absolute crap - she only goes for the ones which give out loads of legal aid. Get it right in future, OK?

What a bout the human rights of all those ex military people on the streets,and I would like to add all those other poor sh1ts in the cold this winter. I dont see their human rights being taken on by Mrs C Blair,or,anyone else come to think about it.
There is a problem with loyalty and respect in this country,however, how can the PM complain, he has no respect for anyone but himself.
