Were they ‘yobs’?

RE THE story headlined Yobs abuse new car park machines – so why weren’t they arrested?

Oh, right, nobody saw them.

Then may I, very tentatively, ask how you know they were yobs?

It’s a term usually reserved for adolescent boys of a certain class or culture.

Now, I’ve seen adults – even a little old lady in a tweed hat and Barbour jacket, destroying fences. If I’d been able to identify them, I’d have shopped them.

Ask Selsey Co-op about the destruction of its car-parking barriers.

The general opinion was that it was done by motorists, and they are never yobs, are they. Are they?

Just one more point: how much is this exercise costing us, and will it ever be recouped?
