I heard recently that Sir David Blunkett was taken to see a troubled area on crime!....as much as I admire this man for his grit (although not a Labour voter) please tell me where am I getting confused?

Yes, I can appreciate where you are going with this WR, but I think that they perhaps meant to say, "Meet with people in this crime troubled area", would him physically being able to see it make any difference? Probably not.

Will him actually being there at all make any difference? Probably not I imagine.

This seems to be something Labour are very keen on, ensuring high up people visit needing areas, as if their supreme presence in that area is somehow going to have an impact and make up for their lack of action.

I appreciate the need for meeting the troubled people and getting to know the areas and so on, but how are publicity stunts going to do that?

He is going to return with a tagged guide dog if not careful

I would imagine he feels this country does not have a immigration problem as he cannot see what a town looks like with a sudden population burst of 20,000 a month!

It makes no difference to Mr Blunkett if all the light bulbs are removed from the street lights, manhole covers going missing are a different matter.

But the biggest waste of the local ratepayers money was to paint over all the graffiti around the places Blunkett was to visit,i know guide dogs are clever,but i did not realise they could read as well.....................
