I think it is amazing that we have politicians who jump over themselves to censor advertising bad food or cigarettes to children, but selling imitation GUNS as kids toys is a legal activity that they dont even touch? Wow.....

I then telephoned Walworth Police and asked them whether imitation guns were legal as I thought they'd been outlawed due to the number of armed robberies being carried out. I was told that they are not illegal and that, unless somebody got hurt or the nuisance became such that all residents complained, the police could do nothing. I'm absolutely amazed that any parent would allow their teen to "play" with guns in the current climate and gobsmacked that they're freely available from stalls in East Street market. I've even had the younger children say that, if they're good, their mummy's will buy them one. What's happened to common sense in Southwark?
