Wandsworth council have threatened to evict a local family from their council house because one family member has been accused of involvement in the riots. This is in addition to the court case, which is ongoing. This constitutes a double and collective punishment of a whole family is a disastrous response to the recent unrest.
A real solution to the riots would include an end to the cuts and investment in jobs and social provision which would strengthen our communities.
Meanwhile, MPs have got away with claiming Plasma TVs on their expenses, Rupert Murdoch’s journalists have hacked phones, while offering payment for information. While severe punishment is promised for alleged rioters, those at the top are getting away scott-free!
