Guess what? If you would like to visit third world like drug infested slums, you don’t even need to go abroad;
Areas of Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham have become ‘no-go’ areas where the law is losing the battle against drug traffickers and organised crime, according to the United Nations’ drugs chief. The three cities were directly compared to the drug cartels which hold sway over large parts of Brazil and Mexico by Professor Hamid Ghodse, the president of the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board (INCB). He said the cities were trapped in ‘a vicious cycle of social exclusion and drugs problems and fractured communities’. The development of ‘no-go areas’ is being fuelled by threats such as social inequality, migration and celebrities normalising drug abuse, he warned, adding that helping marginalised communities with drugs problems ‘must be a priority’.
Oh, not that “social exclusion” that forces people to become drug traffickers? Darn. Odd how some bravehearts manage to survive without becoming part of the druggie gangs. I do agree that celebrities “normalising” drug abuse is a dangerous thing, as is the immigration that brings some of the world’s most enthusiastic drug dealers to our shores.
It would be interesting if we could review the ethnicity of these Mexican-like drug gangs that infest our major cities? Any bets that we won’t get that info? Perhaps the UN might know?
