Cost Of Totton Vandalism

I don’t know if anyone has ever totted up the full annual cost of vandalism in a town like Totton, but I imagine it must run into hundreds of thousands of pounds.

In some cases it is public property that is damaged, in other cases, it is private property.

It’s particularly annoying when you read about local organisations like this, who put a lot of effort into raising money so that they can provide positive things for people to do.

It might just be that there is a link between police resources and the cost of vandalism.

In Ringwood last week, vandals set to work on two parked police cars.

Amazingly, the police knew it was happening but couldn’t spare any officers to respond.

A few weeks ago, we had the public holding onto a thief in Lyndhurst who had to be released because, again, the police had nobody spare to respond and make an arrest.

I do hope people will realise the true cost of voting conservative when it comes to elections.
