Irresponsible Prime Minister

The Prime Minister has called for local politicians to reach agreement on the transfer of policing and justice powers. Plausible, perhaps; except that Mr Brown has abrogated his governmental responsibility when he says that local politicians could deal with anti-social behaviour and other matters themselves. Why hasn't he dealt with it? Why does the prime minister want us to have our own justice minister anyway? We've never had such a minister. Such powers were the responsibility of the Home Office. Policing and justice is divisive in Northern Ireland. Why can't the Brown Administration deal with youth issues throughout the Kingdom? Isn't that what he receives a salary for?
