Michael Howard, the Tories PM candidate, is really showing his understanding of the English people's concern with crime. It's a real shame that the UK taxpayers have endured such lawlessness during Labour's eight year reign. I guess when you lock up people for some 6 months for blowing air guns at hooligans and drunk drivers who kills a children some 2 months you get this. Just look at what this article and see what Howard had to say:
Speaking at a London news conference, Howard accused Prime Minister Tony Blair of "losing the plot" on crime and allowing "yob culture" to thrive.
"I don't want members of the public looking over their shoulders; I want the yobs looking around in fear.
"Let there be no misunderstanding," he said. "I want to make yobs fear the police.
"Decent, hard-working families are regularly intimidated by yobs on their streets and in their town centers," Howard said.
"It makes me sick that people have to put up with this kind of nonsense. In today's Britain no one seems prepared to take a stand -- to hold these arrogant young yobs to account for their appalling behavior."
My best advice is for Howard and his party to keep it up. It's now time for Blair and Labour to explain why this crime is a problem. Its reminiscent of Mrs. Thatcher and the GOP in 1994.
