In regards to the little scum who are blighting people’s life on the Nether Edge and Darnall estates, stuff like this would not have happened as recently as the Eighties.
The proper blokes and lads of the estates, and they were some rough-hewn steel workers and colliers, would have sorted out these tuppeny ha’penny little brats in no time.
And don’t get me on about my grandfather’s generation. One old guy off the estate “Sam Garvin: Mooney gang member in his day” would have sorted them out on his own.
There’d be nobody frightened to leave their home or talk of suicide.
