    Not the first time is it.
    Thats what happens when you are just a suburb of London and drug gangs rule the town.
    Easier to buy drugs in Grays than cigarettes.
    The Police have lost control of the borough totally.

    Zero tolerance on weapons

    10 Years for carrying a Gun or replica
    8 Years for Knifes.

    Please build more prisons and hire more police, I am willing to pay tax for it. and that might be the problem as average Tory or New Labour joe doesn’t want to pay tax for it. But will moan.
