While commentators had contemplated that a change in the Labour Party leadership might signal a more nuanced and less authoritarian policy perspective on anti-social behaviour and, in particular youth crime, this has manifestly not transpired.

In this next section, we will consider the political background to the introduction of New Labour’s policy on anti-social behaviour, and the evolution of criminal justice from penal welfarism, to the new politics of law and order (Garland, 2001). Penal welfarism and the new politics of law and order The politics of ‘law and order’ did not always feature so veritably in political discourse. Indeed, crime and criminal justice policy did not begin to acquire political cachet until the late 1970s. Tracing the growth of ‘law and order’ issues pertaining to crime, policing and criminal justice in the post-war era, Downes and Morgan (2007: 204) identify the existence of what they term a general ‘bipartisan consensus on law and order’, whereby political parties in post-war Britain were, for the most part, broadly in agreement about matters which were of greatest importance to the country at that time (economic reconstruction and the welfare state) and matters which, as a result of pragmatic exigency, were of secondary importance (law and order).

We should never underestimate its impact. We have seen the way communities spiral downwards once windows get broken and are not fixed, graffiti spreads and stays there, cars are left abandoned, streets get grimier and dirtier, youths hang around street corners intimidating the elderly. The result: crime increases, fear goes up and people feel trapped. New Labour’s campaign to tackle anti-social behaviour – but also Tony Blair’s wider initiative to end the so-called ‘1960s liberal consensus on law and order’ – has been criticised by many academics as opportunistic policy-making, influenced by the politicisation of crime and criminal justice.
