Hazel just doesn't get crime at all - even when she's the victim

Did "having nothing to do" drive some vandals to attack a Citroen Picasso one sunny afternoon between 5 and 6:15 pm ?

Hazel Blears says that what she believes.

Clearly "being bored" leads to crime in Hazel's mind - even when she's the victim.

There's no issue of morality that springs to her mind.

And that's what's wrong with the liberal left - even when they are victims of vandalism they don't understand that's what it is.

Hazel - you can look forward to being sent a leaflet on "Victim support" as the highlight of the normal police response - from my personal experience. Though as a member of the establishment you might get a little better service.

Labour aren't just soft on crime - they create the circumstances where they can't even condemn it for what it is. So another of Tony's sound bites comes to bite back "tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime ".

Update: Interesting to note that the ever helpful BBC reports Blears saying:

"This was an act of anti-social behaviour by some youths, the same kind of anti-social behaviour unfortunately many of my constituents have to put up with.

"I was canvassing nearby at the time and returned to my car to find the damage.

"I had earlier seen a gang of kids hanging around the car. This was pathetic and cowardly."

Compare and contrast with what the Press Association report her telling the Manchester Evening News:

"teenagers with nothing to do on a hot afternoon".
