Sir: Each time a new 'shock-horror' event occurs it seems the Great British Public can do nothing but accuse the school/council/police/church/media/government

department of failing in some way. Then new, hastily drafted legislation is introduced. Legislation cannot resolve problems, it merely stifles.

Will it never occur to the populace that it is each and every one of us who can make the difference? If every adult individual would take responsibility for their own life and their family, instilling decent, unambiguous moral and social values, we would all benefit.

Yours faithfully,
