I can vouch for Damian in that my parents live a few miles east of where I'm guessing he lives judging from his location and the council link
I'd say there about 5 years behind where Redbridge is now but working hard to catch up, the house next to my parents is owned by a charity of some description and the tenants tend to stay for anywhere between 3 and 12 months. I understand this may not be long enough to class somewhere as home but no excuse to treat it like a tip, there is regularly furniture and multiple bin bags in the drive and at one point a couple of feral cats called it home.

West is the way forward mate, if there were any jobs I'd be down in North Devon

Damian, blaming it on asylum seekers and cheap labourers from 3rd world countries seems a bit unfair. Yes there is a problem, no denying. The biggest mistake in today's western society's I feel is this. People tend to forget how easy it is to condition a child's proper behaviour. Stick with it and it becomes a habit in no time. They will act accordingly without even thinking about it for it has become a habit. If however, these habits are not taught to people as kids it proves ten times harder to, as an adult, first de-conditioning bad habits before imprinting new, good habits!

I see it around me everywhere, filthy habits taking over, but it is certainly not restricted to asylum seekers instead it includes the spoiled, white, wasted rich and middle class and also tourists!! Youngsters becoming pill swallowing party-animals and alcohol-abusers leaving trash on the street has become so common it has become mainstream! I don't even blame them as much as I do their parents and our politicians! If you're unable to educate your kids, don't $%# take 'm for $#@sake!

One other thing is that it is not enough to adopt a foreigner from a different culture if one doesn't feel equally responsible to educate them and learn them how they're supposed to behave, that is highly political!
It is one thing to do away with apartheid it is another to learn a new way to behave as you obviously know. Political rulers however often live 'úptown', not in the outskirts.

Some would say there is a corporate elite that benefits the most from social unrest and chaos in the middle of society where issues become racist, nationalist or whatever and groups fight groups, the attention is thereby taken away from the banksters and corporations, the untouchable almost abstract entities that are meanwhile stealing all our taxmoney. The trend still being the wealthy elite getting richer and the poor getting poorer. I can feel your frustration and I lived through other crisis but seen from a more filosofical view I think it has a lot to do with the narcistic society and corrupted moral standards of our western hypocritic goverments that work not to the benefit of it's citizens but to the benefits of big corporations. It might have to do with a paradigm that teaches evolution is about survival of the fittest while Darwin can be interpreted otherwise we were taught the survival of the fittest theory and still act according to some of it's principals. Empathy is where moral standards originate even before there was religion. Hate and greed is not going to change things for the better. This is sort of how I think about it. If only we could live in a less ugly environment...

It's getting a tad off topic here! Some pics of my street 2 year's ago, some things changed to the better but the habits sort of remain, why would that be?... Link

Bollx, It's called having a certain amount of respect for where you live.
Or lack of.

I cannot stand litter or those responsible so this is what I did once. A driver eating a macdonalds wound down his window and tossed the packaging out of the car - bin located 1 metre away from his door. I tapped his window, he wound I'd down slightly and I asked him to put it in the bin - result - a torrent of abuse. Unfortunately for him his sun roof was open so he got his litter back anyway. Unfortunately for his upholstery the drink he had with the meal wasn't empty.

whoever we are
where ever we're from
we shoulda noticed by now
our behavior is dumb

and if our chances
expect to improve
it's gonna take a lot more
than tryin to remove
the other race
or the other whatever
from the face of the planet
altogether

they call it the earth
which is a dumb kind of name
but they named it right
cause we behave the same
we are dumb all over
