"Don't moan, take action, it's your street too"

The above was mooted as a possible slogan for the government's latest 'initiative' or 'crackdown' thingy on anti-social behaviour. The Lib Dem's Nick Clegg said:
"The suggestion that people should do more for their own safety is frankly a bit rich, coming from a government that has let criminals walk freely on our streets."
True. The thing is, I'm occasionally up for a little light vigilante action myself - nothing too dangerous - but appreciate my fellow citizens might be less keen. John Reid, in contrast, strikes me a somebody who would find that difficult to understand.

John Reid: "Noisy neighbours? Wit's the problem? Just stick the heid on the bastards."
