The Respect Squad

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the Respect Squad.

However, unlike the A-team, they will not spring into action but "offer the chance of a swift resolution" by coming up with "recommendations" to tackle anti-social behaviour that "will be passed to the chairman of the crime disorder reduction partnership (CDRP)"...

What can the CDRP do next? It has to be assumed that the Respect squad would only be used when existing agencies, including the CDRP, have failed to achieve anything.

John Reid is simply adding another layer of bureaucracy destined for failure. Meanwhile, discipline in many schools is in freefall.
