Gun Crime

Once again the papers are full of comment on the wave of violent crime that has left three London teenagers dead. I thought DJ Dodge, the music producer and DJ interviewed on last night's Ten O'Clock News said it all: "I doubt very much there's ever been the case of a youth who's had a great family background and a great education who's gone out to become a street robber, a drug dealer, or a gunman ... The answer's right there: Education, from the beginning, and family values - mother and father, grandparents, community. That's the solution to the problem, right there."

David Cameron has said "We have got to sit up and realise we are running things by the wrong values. We need to support families." What do you know, someone appears to be listening! (See my comment on the post What Money Can't Buy)
