We will rein in the ASBOs: Tories plan instant penalties to control yobs
I seem to remember the sound bite politics of a certain Anthony Lynton Blair, when he wanted to have the Police march yobs to cashpoints.
However this could be worse:
This might mean an apology to a victim, a penalty agreed with parents or digging the garden of the person whose fence they have knocked down. But in other circumstances, they would give police more 'formal options'.
The surly apology not meant Penalty offered to keep the brat out of prison, but not paid. And the last thing I want is the little bastard in my garden casing the joint.
Mr Grayling said the Tories would allow police to impose grounding orders, instant community penalties and temporary confiscation of property, such as mobile telephones and iPods.
Grounding orders: Whose going to enforce them. Didn't work for the Asbo, did it? Instant community penalty: Who decides that then? Confiscation of property: They'll just shop lift a bit more often. If they get caught they will receive a fine and just do another heist.
More sound bite politics. Better to bring back deportation. They'd better wear something warm as I'd send them to Antartica, the little bastards.
