Apart from the usual council estate mongs, and twats with loud exhausts it is a peaceful place, Gloucester however is another world entirely
Just avoid anyone with the surname Johnson, Breslin or Sheering.
 
Unfortunately, the people now managing many of these properties, are the new generation of little starlets, and empire builders, and do not take the long term view of maintaining properties, keeping the rents affordable, and keeping the community together, the usual suspects have smelt money, listened to the big faces, and taken on board their ideas of increased profits and off course a better class of clientele ie rich yuppies
And have tried to evict long term tenants by rent rises and contract changes
The tenants are fighting back, but in the same way that companies outsource for quick short term profits the catalysts will always be there, until you allow people with a decent morale code to run the entire operation and keep the big faces away

What? Like a local authority you mean? Damn your eyes, man, that's the acceptable face of socialism!
Rent racking is always the way to go.
 
A schoolfriend dad worked there, nice house included (long since sold off no doubt)


Had done 22 years in the army, been in a few battles, nice chap but took no messing with the inmates firm and fair
Probably staffed by graduates and trans people now
I used to get pulled if I didn't wear my tie when working in the main entrance (gate). Nothing was said to the raver who had a pink mohican hairdo,numerous piercings,nuts and bolts in his ears etc. Plenty of dyke mafia in there too.
My last boss got binned for having illicit liaisons with a con.(she did have a lovely arse !)
Most staff now have degrees of some sort.

Who had a lovely arrse your boss or the con ?
and you know da rulz
PICS .
 
Wandsworth was harsh (Sometimes TOO harsh)-- until the Woke Brigade took over--- but it worked.-- Now it's FeKed.
Strangeways was harsh as well and it also worked. Until the cons went on the rampage and systematically demolished it.

Wandsworth, I knew a couple of people who did time there, one an ex squaddy bounced at GCM. They called it the Hate Factory.*

Prisons won't do most inmates much good however you run them; left wing holiday camps or right wing temples of discipline. What you don't want is men going back on the streets angry and resentful and so volatile that the public ends up paying for their treatment inside.

*The ex squaddy emerged from Wandsworth a bitter racist. I don't know what was going on in there, but he wanted to shoot all black people.
 
Show success criteria, and objectively verifiable data points against which attainment of those criteria were/are/will continue to be judged.

Until then; you're just bumping yer gums.
Ex HMPS ?

Most ones in the Met had mickey mouse degrees like Sports Science though. Wormwood Scrubs was our local nick when I worked at Hillingdon and Brent. Had to go there a few times returning prisoners who had breached their licence and such like. Grim place.
 
No many of them are charitable trusts
But you always get the upward type who use buzz words and want to improve fluid capital, and oddly their wages

Charitable trusts who purchased Council Housing at an obscene discount in the 80's and 90's (asset stripping councils?). Run by establishment types on fat wages and are little more than landlords who don't have to pay taxes due to charity status? Those the ones you mean?
 
Apparently Mayor Sadiq Khan needs



"24-hour police protection due to the "colour of his skin and the god he worships""

so..........not because on your watch London has accelerated its descent into a crime ridden cr@phole, then?

My large bold:- It has been for the last 10 years or so, its just a matter of perceived degree! ;)

Care to set out how his predecessors fared?

I'd be particularly interested in your assessment of the legendary Lahnd'n crimefighter Boris Johnson's successes in this field.

As pointed out on another thread, red Ken travelled on the Tube, Boris used to cycle around London, Khan needs a gas guzzling 300K armoured Range Rover and a team of 15 Met officers to get around, now tell me how bad things are when the 2 previous incumbents would happily go their own way when the present one needs his own personal army?

Tell me about crime figures, please.

That's what I'm interested in.

Without them it's all about image, opinion and (at worst) ad homs directed at one or other mayor/ former mayor.
