There’s always been people better off than others, and it will always be that way, just make the best of what you can achieve in life because its very short.

How about a few more officers on the beat around the island, after all we will be paying more for policing soon, so let’s see some police please.

Treason May cut the force in half, so we need to double it just to get back to the point where we needed more. Drugs getting out of hand in Ryde. Stinks of weed everywhere.I walk the dog around the block at 10pm before bed. Dealers driving around unchecked despite lock down.

I disagree. We have way too many cops as it is. If they have time to harass old ladies for not exercising in the approved way then we have too many of these useless clowns. Keep these dangerous thugs as far away from law-abiding citizens as possible.

Bembridge has always had a drugs scene especially in the summer. There are drug dealers in every town believe it or not. There have been some big drug importers/dealers arrested over the years who lived in Bembridge.

You are so right. Reminds me of the good old Ventnor Blog days! Well done to the police for attacking crime rather than innocent people for a change. Drugs are not nice – been there, done that. Would hate to think my kids grow up in an environment there I did – I wasted decades smoking dope.
