It is easy to be cynical about politicians promises and sloganising. Things can only get better, though, wasn't just a slogan. It has taken time for investment to start showing results, but certainly on the issue of anti-social behaviour and crime, the feedback I get is that people really do think we are making progress after the Tory years of under investment and the running down of public services. Certainly these people in Sandwell seem to agree that efforts to stop low level crime and anti-social behaviour are beginning to have an effect.
