So, headline news;

David Blunkett PROMISES to reduce street crime WITHIN FIVE MONTHS!

Now just how the f*ck can he be that sure - unless, of course, he's read the Met's report;

"As a result of the ‘Lambeth Experience’, in which police ceased arresting people for cannabis possession, levels of street crime have been cut by 35 per cent and burglaries by more than 8 per cent.

The scheme has not transformed the district into a haven of drug dealing, as critics have claimed, however class A drug arrests increased substantially -159 compared with 96 for both cannabis and class A drugs, in a similar period last year."
