I think it would be crudely economistic to assume that people might therefore divert their energies from community drama projects to smashing up JD Sports within the space of 15 months On this particular aspect of your argument: It may or may not be 'crudely economistic', but I would say - after many years involvement with youth work and youth services - that it is entirely plausible on this occasion, and has been the case previously. Good centre-based, project-based and detached youthwork has demonstrably in the past for some young people provided some of the pay-offs in terms of identity, social contact, achievement, stimulation and association that they have obtained from involvement in such activity as we have been witnessing, without the damaging effects on others and themselves. It has provided such benefits very rapidly, and the impact of their withdrawal can be equally swift.
