  • Shop a Yob with The Sun

    I have just seen in The Sun, they are starting a campaign to rid our streets of antisocial louts, following the government's launch yesterday of a supposed crack down.

    They say if you want to 'shop a yob' you can either phone them or send an email and they will then send a team of investigators, and depending on what they find out they will name and shame those concerned.

    the number is 020 7782 4118

    or email [email protected]

    i hope they can cope with the deluge!!!!

    Hi Annabel,

    They are going to be swamped :unsure:

    I'll reserve judgement on this, as it does sound a bit gun-Ho (sorry everyone for using this phrase, but I can't think of a better term!). The trouble is that the Sun is only doing this to boost sales. They are not going to care about any repercussions.

    Or maybe I'm just being cynical....

      Perhaps a good idea if thought out properly, but will the Sun have time to think before moving onto the next good idea?

      Look what happened when the News of the World named supposed peodaphiles. Some innocent people hounded out of their homes by a lynch mob.

      Frightening stuff.
