    “A gay pub in Shoreditch, east London, has set up reporting boxes where drinkers can anonymously report homophobic attacks.”

    Excellent positive and contruction action.

    I presume victims are being given the option to remain anonymous, but can sign their names if they want. I would want to sign.

  2. This is down to Dave Pollard. Keep it up mate. If people are too scared to report directly, at least we might start to get a more accurate statistic of what is actually going on in the area. Maybe then the police will begin to recognise the size of the problem and begin to do something about it.

    We’ve had anonymous online reporting for years, that didn’t work and nor will this. The Police knows what the problem is, but they are refusing to change it.

    I live five minutes from The Joiners Arms and although not a patron there ( I am too old ( 50 ) and have facial hair lol ) really welcome this move.
    I dont consider the area any more unsafe than elsewhere and we should all be vigilant where ever we are but well done for this and thanks to everyone involved. Lets hope it works, better still lets hope there comes a time when we dont need to worry about hate crime!
