ASBO Failure Plans to take their iPods

Funny story written by Jack A Langton

Thursday, 10 February 2011

The anti social behaviour order was introduced by then Prime Minister Tony Blair in 19998. Over the years, it has had many criticisms.

Last week the home secretary Teresa May announced it was time to abolish these orders with the introduction of new tougher measures.

The government muted the idea of being able to take away from anyone committing anti social behaviour their gadgets one example given was their iPod.

Some MPs commented that it may be better to confiscate their Knives, knuckle-duster or even contemplate taking away the cheap alcohol that they steal from the local store. The Home secretary responded by saying 'it is important that we do not go too far these items are the tools by which they forge their careers in anti social behaviour and if we were to take them away it may be seen as an infringement of their human rights by many.'

Many of the supporters of the home secretary thought it a positive and progressive move backing her plan by saying 'it would allow the police to confiscate their gadgets returning them to the people who had lost them in the muggings in the first place. Therefore acting as a deterrent in the future.'

Many human rights organisations are already saying it is a move to far and asking where it will stop. 'What if they have their mobile phones confiscated and they can't call for help when they are arrested. It's clearly ludicrous.'

When asked for a quote from Colin a 13 year old a former recipient of the ASBO he said 'Banging tunes mister. Git out me face, before I's cut you up.' No problems there then with the education reform.

The Con-Dem Prime Minister Mr David Cameron refused to comment after allegedly being mugged on his way to work.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
