Labour’s Nick Thomas-Symonds Wants Violent Felons To Fear Police Again


Nick Thomas-Symonds said that his aim was to refurbish trust in Labour as the party that will keep neighbourhoods safe, adding that in the working-class communities he represents – in South Wales there are people who have preyed on defenceless people.

And if we think of the disturbing growth in domestic abuse through the lockdown, there are clearly perpetrators out there who are not fearing that rap on the door from law enforcement, but the fact is, these people need to be afraid.

We unquestionably need a lower violent crime rate and more police officers, and that’s what Nick Thomas-Symonds wants for this country over the next four years.

He wants tougher punishments for knife crimes, which are on the table, but he emphasised that prevention must additionally play a role, and he continued that he’s supported tougher punishments on different offences and that he was prepared to look at that for the deterrent effect.

But that we could also lose sight of prevention, and it was about a suitably resourced violent crime policy and those prevention services that had been undermined in the past 10 years.

Nick Thomas-Symonds showed concern at recent images of heavy-handed policing but declined to say whether forces were institutionally prejudiced, and he said that we mustn’t lose sight of the work the vast preponderance of our police officers do and that we must support them in it.

He said that stop and search should be intelligence-led and Section 60 laws, which enable police to search anyone within a specific area, should be used sparingly.

Sadiq Khan appears to have completely lost control of policing in London, with the crime increasing to five times the national average rate, and he should have his special budget taken off him and returned to the Home Office.

Of course, this kind of policing is never going to happen because the police are now like terrified kids, driving around in their patrol cars because they can’t be bothered to walk, and some of these politicians on both sides need a check-up from the neck up because this is the real world and it will only get more serious.

The Tories said they would bring back 25,000 police officers, where are they? And that number wouldn’t even take the levels back to when Labour was in control.

In addition, the essential front line services, you know, the ones that had a tremendous influence on stopping crime, particularly amongst teenagers, where are they? The precious Tories and their budget cuts and austerity have slaughtered them, but once again, never let facts get in the way of idolism.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
