A PLAUDIT FOR CLLR WADE
You may have seen there has been a marked reduction in the number of tart cards in telephone boxes up and down the Old Brompton Road and general area.
This is down to the police finally taking the time to catch the culprits, mainly Eastern European gangs.
Reduction of these cards is is solely down to RBKC residents and Cllr Wade.
The Brompton ward Safer Neighbourhoods team has been contacted many times, over the years, whenever residents witness the gang putting up the cards, or are about to, so they could easily have been caught in the act. Residents either have an answerphone message, or speak to an officer who then says they have no one there to apprehend the culprits
Linda Wade has been dealing and liaising with police about the tart cards. It would have taken one day to catch these men and destroy the gang and save money for the council, who had to keep cleaning up these Telephone boxes. It is the job of the police to catch the gangs and BT to clean them up. The laziness and ineptitude of councillors, police and BT is reprehensible!
This is one reason that is not voiced in favour of Brexit.... the constant Eastern European crime, not only in the borough and capital, but across the country.
Since 2004 Eastern European crime has been on the increase.
What is more concerning is that the Chelsea Police station was sold off by Stephen Greenhalgh, as well as Knightsbridge and Battersea, making police response times greater than they were before.
This is best illustrated by the robbery of Kings Road Post office and no one apprehended.
