Newcastle-under-Lyme = 19.9%
Very disappointed Newcastle-under-Lyme - must try harder ;)
Just what you never knew you needed, the ASBOrometer, an app for iPhones and Android devices, which lets you know how many people with antisocial behaviour orders there are in your neighbourhood. Here is an application to make you feel lucky and superior or depressed about impending ghettofication, for which we thank Jeff …
I'd never have guessed that my borough, Newham, would come top in such a prestigious contest. Really. These days it's known as "the olympic borough", or as the council keep on insisting in spite of all evidence to the contrary, "A place people choose to work and live", although an increasing number are choosing to work, live, socialise, be sick, or just go for a walk etc just about anywhere else they can manage; they tend to use less charitable slogans.
But wait! There's more!! Guess which borough has the highest percentage of Labour councillors in the whole of the UK? And an avowedly NEW Labour executive Mayor? You guessed it - Newham! After the 1994 local elections it actually hit 100% when the solitary elected Lib Dem switched to Labour at the first post election council meeting. It's down a few now at 90 percent, the other 10percent being ex labour or Christian Peoples alliance. Newham is to Labour what Wandsworth was to the Tories.
So... 47.9 percent have ASBOs. 90 percent of councillors are Labour. The mayor is very New Labour. The MPs are all Labour.
I leave you to join the dots.
British gay men are very found of chavs (aka scallies) because of their bad boys attitude. Dress up as a chav and your Gaydar (a well known UK gay dating site) inbox will be flowing with invitations. There are even Gay scallies nights in various gay clubs up and down this country. So it seems this app kills 2 birds with 1 stone. If I could morally convince myself to give my cash to Apple and get an iJesusPhone, I would immediately get this app and go happy hunting!
