You know you have lost the crime battle when drug pushers set up right next door to an MP and nothing is done.
You know you have lost the crime battle when everyone turns the other way.
You know you have lost the crime battle when even MP's are scared of the criminals.
Shamefully the increasing crime situation has happened on Labours watch and nowhere more so than in the heart of labour country South Auckland.
We have the shameful view of a sitting MP who by his own addmission is hardly ever at his office too chicken to confront drug pushers.
Is it any wonder that Roass Robertson may be facing a challenge from within his own party?
