Kaleb just to be sure we are on the same wavelength the answer I was referring to was as to why the Police don't close it down

MacDonalds is a brilliantly run business - and as such they are sure to keep a large amount of cash off balance sheet for shall we say "out of hand expenses" - it happens all over the world and here too

Drugs is a huge problem in the UK but no one wants to do anything about it.

It always comes down to money "waste of taxpayers money" "send him back to wild from where he came"

This country is turning into a xenophobic nazi metropolis. All these people worried about "their" money and belittling the poor and turning their nose up at those in need.

If you do not want drugs, arrest the dealers and lock them up forever. Ban alcohol then you wont have drunks.....oh no cannot do that! No one wants to pay for prisons so we have them on the streeet. No one wants to pay for reform so these people never get educated and go back to crime and yes, no one will ban alcohol as it raises more revenue then you do and the pathetic politicians you vote in are all in cahoots with big business.

So shut up and put up unless you are going to do something that benefits society. Until then, this problem will continue and get worse.

Do you contribute by paying taxes from working all hours or get willing to benefit from others keeping NHS afloat (just).

Why does the council what to spend money on this failing area.
What do you suggest then smarty pants?

The trouble started when they knocked down loads of houses & then pedestrianized the main thoroughfare.

Once again, I will say it's about Bournemouth Town Centre not wanting any competition.

Boscombe was vibrant & very successful until the council 'experts', who of course had no ulterior motive, made decisions that ran Boscombe into the ground.
For the last 100 years Boscombe & it's 'Golden Mile' had ALWAYS been seen as a threat to the Town Centre.
The area has been systematically run into the ground. This has also had a knock on effect & spread into Southbourne, a side effect that wasn't forseen IMO.
Get rid of the ridiculous & waste of money that is the pedestrianized area.
That alone seemed to kill Boscombe.
Yes there were areas that were run down & split into bedsits, but I don't believe this was the major problem, although all the houses around that area were originally massive family homes built to high standards & owned by rich families with servants etc.
Look at the architecture around the houses by the park around Walpole Rd etc. Ironwork etc made by the finest foundries in UK at the time.

No reason that these areas could become sought after once again. Just look at London & places such as Hackney. Bournemouth is within a commute to London etc. Take a look at the history though & you will see that Boscombe has always been a threat to the town centre & those in influential positions ensure policy decisions are made that scupper & destroy the area.
Also it seems most who moan & put Boscombe down don't generally live in the area? The ECHO & it's pathetic reporting does not help.
Maybe they should start to employ people who actually know what journalism is.
Some of the reporting is worse than School newspapers, & far lower standard than trhe Punk Fanzines that Bournemouth youth produced from the late 70s to early 80's....

Boscombe was vibrant & very successful until the council 'experts', who of course had no ulterior motive, made decisions that ran Boscombe into the ground. For the last 100 years Boscombe & it's 'Golden Mile' had ALWAYS been seen as a threat to the Town Centre. The area has been systematically run into the ground. This has also had a knock on effect & spread into Southbourne, a side effect that wasn't forseen IMO. Get rid of the ridiculous & waste of money that is the pedestrianized area. That alone seemed to kill Boscombe. Yes there were areas that were run down & split into bedsits, but I don't believe this was the major problem, although all the houses around that area were originally massive family homes built to high standards & owned by rich families with servants etc. Look at the architecture around the houses by the park around Walpole Rd etc. Ironwork etc made by the finest foundries in UK at the time. No reason that these areas could become sought after once again. Just look at London & places such as Hackney. Bournemouth is within a commute to London etc. Take a look at the history though & you will see that Boscombe has always been a threat to the town centre & those in influential positions ensure policy decisions are made that scupper & destroy the area. Also it seems most who moan & put Boscombe down don't generally live in the area? The ECHO & it's pathetic reporting does not help. Maybe they should start to employ people who actually know what journalism is. Some of the reporting is worse than School newspapers, & far lower standard than trhe Punk Fanzines that Bournemouth youth produced from the late 70s to early 80's....[/p][/quote]Steve sometimes I disagree with things you say but this post I am all in agreement for instant who would have lived in Notting Hill 40 years ago. It is Bournemouth town centre that has my nerves tighten up on the odd times I have occasion to go there I can not get out of the place quick enough. And with the proliferation of flats in central Bournemouth it will slide into the equivalent of the former Gorbals. Thank goodness I will be gone upstairs by then[/p][/quote]Good day m`lud ,youre moaning about flats, then say you are moving upstairs very puzzling,listen leave me your forwarding address wont you cos I will miss you,lots. :) retry69

logic doesn't work. What about an overweight person having a heart attack? Somebody crashing their car? an attempted suicide? It may be their fault and cost the taxpayer a fortune but they should still get treatment.
Do you contribute by paying taxes from working all hours or get willing to benefit from others keeping NHS afloat (just).
Yes I am a PAYE employee so I do contribute my 11%. Its nice to know that we aren't all Tories, isn't it?
