OMG I've never heard anything so ridiculous, what about starting at the beginning, 'parents" aren't we responsible for our kids no one else. Yes let's just blame it on someone else .

And how does he expect this to happen? To use understaffed police or over stressed nhs staff? Maybe by using social workers who are quitting in the hundreds due to their workload?

Anything else you would like our public service workers to do ? How about the perpetrators being held responsible!! Now there’s an idea

Discipline starts in the home, making sure your children understand what's right from wrong. It's time parents took responsibility for their children and their actions, where there is action's there are consequences.

As teachers we report every little incident we see where we suspect a child might be at risk (even if it's keeping a broken protractor) because they might use it to hurt someone or themselves.
We're not mind readers and don't have x-ray vision.

How about holding people who make the decisions to cut police funding, youth centres, local government funding etc accountable?

Do they not realise that schools do this already? My sister who works at a secondary school was suspicious of a student some time ago, searched them and found a knife. The school took all appropriate action. I think the government needs to get its own shambolic house in order before it starts insinuating that our school and NHS staff are responsible for or failing at weeding out knife crime.

Not the parents then..? Why should the already overstretched NHS and education system have to be accountable for lack of parental control/supervision..?

How about making the parents accountable for the actions of their children.
