This is my little boy. He's not a

headline.

0:00:170:00:26

headline. He's not Joshua, stabbed

to death in a club, a statistic.

0:00:260:00:30

He's my little boy.

Growing up,

didn't really look up to anybody

0:00:300:00:35

myself. Watching the kids go through

the same now, something needed to.

0:00:350:00:39

There is nothing around here for the

kids. The age group has just been

0:00:390:00:43

forgotten about.

We took over the old school

0:00:430:00:47

building, a very busy youth centre.

Full every night. I was in there for

0:00:470:00:53

18 years and it was valuable. For

the funding has been cut, it is so

0:00:530:00:58

sad.

Over six or seven years, seeing the

0:00:580:01:02

young people just getting more and

more fed up, just walking about in

0:01:020:01:07

gangs and that.

We are so used to all the stuff that

0:01:070:01:11

is happening, petrol bombings and

stuff, messing in people's houses.

0:01:110:01:16

People are getting murdered. I don't

even see police, I don't see no one.

0:01:160:01:21

Seven, nearly eight, years of

consistent cuts have devastated the

0:01:210:01:25

police service. One obvious thing as

police officers have disappeared

0:01:250:01:29

from the streets, from safer

neighbourhood team some proactive

0:01:290:01:32

patrol. There are very few police

officers now.

0:01:320:01:36

We are one of the wealthiest

countries in the world and cannot

0:01:360:01:41

provide basic security services. You

get burgled, please might come four

0:01:410:01:43

or five days later. You are

resulted, police do not have time to

0:01:430:01:48

investigate. People are being left

or to their own devices.

0:01:480:01:52

There was nobody to talk to these

kids in their area. We have about

0:01:520:01:57

the kids to train. We started

charging them, some of them could

0:01:570:02:02

not afford it. We have seen a

massive improvement in their

0:02:020:02:05

behaviour.

We have a service to help young

0:02:050:02:07

people after school I was, reduce

crime, reduce anti-social behaviour.

0:02:070:02:12

Why can't that be something the

Government would like to give back?

0:02:120:02:16

This is not right. The public pay

the money underfunding is not going

0:02:160:02:21

into the police. As a police

officer, we cannot do our job at the

0:02:210:02:29

moment because we have not got the

support.

0:02:290:02:31

I feel so strongly about that, that

is why I have left.

The cuts are

0:02:310:02:34

causing so many young people to lose

their lives. They have no one to

0:02:340:02:38

turn to. The social workers have

been cut, the family centres have

0:02:380:02:42

been cut. What support is therefore

our communities?

0:02:420:02:46

It may happen to a young person I am

very close with, and I feel for me

0:02:460:02:51

the impact of that will have me feel

like I want to withdraw from my job,

0:02:510:02:55

it would make me feel I have not

done enough for the young people. I

0:02:550:02:58

could do a lot more, but without the

resources you are fighting a losing

0:02:580:03:06

battle.

When you lose a child, it breaks you

0:03:060:03:08

and leaves a void in you that cannot

be filled by anything.

0:03:080:03:12

I sometimes stop and think to buy

remember what his skin felt like?

0:03:120:03:20

You know? -- sometimes stop and

think, do I remember what his skin

0:03:200:03:24

felt like? Do I remember what he

felt like? His hair, his hands? I

0:03:240:03:30

had to reassure myself I remember.

# No help from the system, swear

0:03:300:03:36

that they missed, left him alone.

# Only friend that you have lives a

0:03:360:03:41

life on the road, nowhere to go.

# He walks with a knife and hides it

0:03:410:03:47

at home.

# We have heard it all a thousand

0:03:470:03:50

times, now we are drawing down the

battle lines.

0:03:500:03:56

# We rise together.

# We rise together.

0:03:560:04:03

We need a change, we need somebody

new leading this country, and it is

0:04:030:04:08

not going to be the Government in

power at the moment, because they

0:04:080:04:12

are failing us. It is not rocket

science. You are cutting everything,

0:04:120:04:17

people are dying.

I was a Tory voter and it rips your

0:04:170:04:21

heart out when you see people

elected to represent a country and

0:04:210:04:24

they look after their own interests.

If a new Government is the way it

0:04:240:04:28

will change, a new Government it has

to be.

0:04:280:04:33

Jeremy Corbyn -- Jeremy Corbyn has

come and he is all the things we

0:04:330:04:36

have needed for so long.

He wants good things for the

0:04:360:04:40

country, especially my kind of

people, working class, on the bottom

0:04:400:04:44

of the spectrum. We need Labour, it

is as simple as that.

0:04:440:04:50

# We rise together. We rise

together.
