I went to university at Loughborough. Many a night spent out with friends in town or at the union and no real trouble witnessed or heard of. In the last 6 months there have been rapes, assaults, brutal knife attacks and now someone’s been shot in the university union, on the campus itself. The BBC reports (vaguely) about the university shooting.

I’m sick of this crap. I’m sick of mindless thugs ruining the place, destroying property and lives because their tiny minds know no better. I’m sick of chav doley bastards breaking into our homes, wrecking our cars and fouling the streets with vomit, needles and piss.

The police are clearly ineffective, the education system has failled and public awareness can only reach those who can read and, more importantly, give a damn. What’s next? Martial law? Vigilante groups who will dispense justice in the only way these brutish fools understand? I have no idea, but it’s plain to see for anyone who cares to look that right now, in this age of Big Brother and heightened security, nothing is working. Perhaps the police are too busy chasing imaginary terrorists that they’ve no time for the real problems.

Ironically, my GF and I are in the process of applying for her permanent leave to remain here. As soon as it’s approved, maybe we’ll be applying for permanent leave to remain somewhere else.

(And yes, I’m aware that everywhere has crime, but when a dead-end sleepy town like Loughborough ends up with gunshot victims, it’s time to ask questions. Also, no-one in Australia, Sweden, Switzerland or pretty much anywhere East of here knows what a Chav is, and that can only be a good thing.)
