All happens in Harlow recently
What are all these incidents saying about Harlow!!!! OMG it certainly is one thing after the other & getting worse in Harlow. So all you that support Mr Dan Swords, the council not supporting Harlow people etc must be wearing rose tinted glasses when he has only the other day detailed all he has achieved in he's priorities!!! Yeah right!!! REALLY. I could list as many priorities that he hasn't achieved & most of them duplicate he's list. This town is getting so out of hand with all the happening it's uncontrollable no matter how hard the police work at trying to keep the peace They have a lot more to come regarding all the poor XL bully dogs in Harlow which some owners will think they are above the law even though they say they love their dogs. Then they should respect the law & abide by it, as it's NOT the dogs but some people who own them....A dog is very much like a child when raising you teach it the right things it will be good in life if you don't well we all know how that ends!! It's getting so dangerous living here in Harlow, it's really not nice or safe anymore no matter where you go. Not even your own homes.
For me Harlow is now the new from old East End.At my age I am too old .to get out.but it has been going down hill for years.
Bring back national service!!
Get the NCA into Harlow and investigate this never ending cases of violence. Every school in Harlow needs to submit a list of miscreant school pupils to a database of sorts with major intervention put in for them as they will probably end up committing a violent crime in the next few years after leaving school.
Whatever happened to youth services? Tory run Essex County Council cut them. What happened to Social Services? Tory run Essex County Council cut them. Do you see a pattern emerging? Cut every agency that supports society and then wonder why it falls apart.
Drugs are at the heart of all these issues. More people are doing cocaine now than smoking cigarettes. Regardless of which party is in power, the drug problem in Harlow is of epidemic proportion. A delivery network of E-scooters which are almost impossible to catch, buzz around our roads, streets and cycle paths delivering drugs throughout Harlow. This brings violence between different areas or turf wars. The demand for drugs and the profit it brings, means who ever gets caught just simply gets replaced.
Totaly agree with JR you are so right in everything you have said in your comment,infact i agree with all comnents on here,well said everyone.
David Forman. Nurturing, discipline, and teaching right from wrong begins at home. It's not schools, youth clubs, or local/county councils' responsibility. There are not enough good male role models/disciplinarians in the feral youngster's lives. There are many excellent single parents who do amazing jobs, but the importance of the family model has been eroding over the last 35-40 years. In Harlow during the late 80s/early 90s, teenage girls and those in their early 20s could get a flat, especially when they young mums. The responsibility of bringing a child into the world was not important to some girls, their goal was to get their own flat. Some of their children have grown up without a male role model, some of those repeating the paths their mums took. Some teenagers now have grown up without a father or grandfather figure to look up to or be guided by. I know of a single parent family 20 odd years ago given a 3-bed council house. The 3 children all had different fathers. The youngest was two, who got a PS2 for Xmas, mum didn't work but received plenty of benefits. The Labour run Harlow Council at the time paid for the family to go on holiday so Harlow Council workers could decorate the house. The breakdown in society transcends all political parties. People have selective or short memories.
The town, thankfully I no longer live in Needs to bring back play schemes and sports pitches on every estate like it used to have in the 80’s The town also needs pubs in the town centre so people who like to socialise centrally You won’t rid the crimes, but it will reduce it And more community based 24 hour policing is needed, not just for afternoon tea pop ups
Harlow is a awful place to live nowadays. Rapidly gone downhill
JR, You couldn’t be more correct. With all this going on, it feels like Harlow is over.
As someone born and bred in Harlow, it has been said the town has been getting worse for as long as I can remember. However, when I was a kid, no internet etc, you’d have only heard about this stuff third hand a week later from someone at a shop or pub. Harlow’s societal problems are no better or worse than any other town of it’s size and economic wealth, it is a wider spread problem, from the morals taught at school, employment, immigration and law enforcement, this is just what you get when politicians are made to panda to a liberal media (I’m talking to you BBC R4 today programme), don’t want to be seen as hard or unfair, when in truth most of us want anyone someone coming out of prison to be traumatised, not claiming to be the victim after serving a fraction of a meaningless holiday sentence, same goes for education, concentrate on teach skills for life, not how many made up genders there are supposed to be. There’s an election this year, tell the candidates you’ve had enough of these incidents, that you want them sorted out, and that starts with getting someone with life experience, who cares less about the media than the job, rather than someone starting as a ‘researcher’ and making a career out of the Westminster gravytrain.
ANON Hey you don't write for the daily Mail do you? What a load of tripe saying it is down to single Mum's !!! It takes 2 to make a baby (in case you didn't know) 3 different fathers-we don't Thankfully live in Victorian times. How about blaming the sh*g around town blokes? Why aren't they stepping up. We do need youth services and something for young people to be proud of in THEIR town
Jo, I didn't say this issue was down to single mums. I was careful to state there are thousands of excellent single parents bringing up their children brilliantly. I hoped this would avoid getting people's backs up, but I stand by my comments. To expand on those comments, there's single parent dads and single parent mums bringing up their kids correctly, and both parents are always jointly responsible for their children. No, we don't live in Victorian times, we live in times where some responsible tax-paying couples have fewer kids because they can't afford to support a large family, and then there are others who milk the system and don't consider how many children they have, as they expect the state to look after them. These are the same people who like to have the latest iPhones but expect schools to potty train their kids and give them breakfast each morning. I'm Harlow born and bred and remember the playschemes fondly, having lived in the town for over 50 years. I've also paid taxes for over 35 years. If there had been no playschemes in my day, I wouldn't have turned to a life of crime. Partly due to my good upbringing, but even if I'd not been fortunate to have had two fantastic parents supporting me, I still wouldn't have turned to a life of crime, because although far from being perfect, I made a conscious decision to be a law abiding citizen. Even thick people know right from wrong, but I'm not sure whether ignorant people truly understand their personal responsibility to society? I hate all the tabloids, the woke press, and all those who think it's always other people's fault and not their own. It's not Victorian times, but old fashioned values are still the best.
Crazy horse 74. Totally agree with you. Give the army the teens benefits, and teach them respect . They may not like it , but I bet they will be glad they did it. Crazy Horse 74 , we must both be pensioners I bet
