"Too many young criminals thought, 'Even if the police come here, what are they going to do – arrest me? Well, that is a joke. You know I have done this before and all that happened was the bloody magistrate remanded me over or I got an asbo.' The system seemed hell-bent to get you out without any kind of punishment."
Duncan Smith insisted that he believed gangs had played a large role in the riots, even though police figures have suggested as few as 18-19% of those arrested were in gangs. He described the figure as staggering, given that gang members represent 1-2% of society. "Gangs are firstly the products of social breakdown, and they are also the drivers of perpetual social breakdown in these communities."
He said young people would not go for a job because the bus taking them to the interview would cross gang zones. "The chances are you will get stabbed. Whole families will not go out in the evenings because of gangs. Shops that open near an estate will find they have to pay a particular crew off. They pull down and lock down communities. Think about gangs as dysfunctional, nasty businesses and then the whole thing becomes explicable."
