    Sounds like a good initiative, tough on the causes of crime and all that, pity Britain after the reshuffle is going the other way...

    Mmm. I wonder how Pepe is going to square this with him becoming the biggest drug dealer in the country.

    Make no mistake, most of the crimes are committed by drug users addicted to the cheap 'paste' drugs emanating from guess where? YES, our southern cousins - Argentina.

    I live in Uruguay, get yourself a map.

    'Southern cousins' is what Uruguayo disparagingly call the Argentineans.

    Did 'La Camping-it-up ,', the well known jessies, not tell you this?

    And yes, I know we have argies off to the west as well.

    Stop asking for loans and increasing the debt!
    We should better check our penal system; stop making sensationalist dum laws which are in contraposition with other laws... get some advice and apply them. stop wasting money in more police if 80 or 90% of the people which cometed a crime relapses. something is wrong here...
    But any improval is off the table if we consider our inquisitive system.
    Politicians only make laws for popularity , they havent got any idea of how that affects the hole magisterial system...
