Andrea W., Forest Hill
Les O., Lambeth
Paul K., Lambeth
Someone who actually tackles the issues gets castigated. Brave bloke.

Policing for the community. Tolerance!
Karmen L., Lambeth
I believe he actually works for the community.
S BA., Lambeth
I support his stance.
Reinstate Brian paddick. We need someone like him, we valued him.
David J., Lambeth
He has been treated outrageously. The police in Lambeth need him back.
Geraldine F., Lambeth
The media in this country is poisonous. They print constant lies in their attempt to destroy a person who is genuine in their effort to develop a safe and tolerant community.
Brian Paddick should be reinstated – he has the right idea – smoking cannabis is far less of a worry than other problems in London
It is good to have someone with an honest opinion and not afraid to speak their mind.
Sue C., Lambeth
Fully deserves support of all locals
We support you as those that are right cannot be kept down.
PAT & Marie R., Lambeth
You did a lot of good work in Lambeth.
Stephen D, Lambeth
Was doing a good job, should be back to continue.
Rachel H., Lambeth
Bring back Brian
Carl C., Lambeth
I commend him because his policy has been proved to help with Lambeth’s crack/heroin issues.
David W., Lambeth
It is a rare thing for a police man to have such support in the community – bring him back.
David W., Lambeth
Get him back.
Anita D., Lambeth
I support this campaign
Appalling treatment of a professional – for the first time a policy that has a chance of working. Reinstate him please.
F V., Lambeth
Paddick needs reinstating as soon as possible and given a chance to see through his successful campaign.
Best thing to happen to the police for ages! More power to his elbow.
Pete J., Lambeth
The word “scapegoat” springs to mind! Traditional measures aren’t always the best mthods.
Gaynor W., Lambeth
I live in Lambeth. We are safer with police who understand and deal sensibly with drugs – police like Brian Paddick.
Sheila F., Lambeth
Monica K., Brixton
Have just moved to this vibrant community ad it’s great to see recognition and belief in it’s clear qualities and energies.
Mark H., Lambeth
Lambeth needs people who are forward thinking. Legalising cannabis might not be right but the message is.
Dan W., Lambeth
Bring him back!
David M., Lambeth
Bring back the People’s Policeman
Commander Paddick bravely promoted policing priorities for Lambeth, for which he was character assassinated by cheque book journalism. He deserves our support for reinstatement.
Tim S., Lambeth
Listen to the police not the political parties.
Is finally tackling the real causes of drugs.
Commander Paddick has the courage to try something new when tackling old entrenched problems. The old solutions didn’t work. Paddick’s approach was beginning to break through old patterns and problems. Let him supervise the enactment of his vision. Bring him back!
Like the song – Bring him back, Bring him back, Bring him back!
I’ve lived in Brixton almost all my life and fully agree with Mr Paddick’s policies. Bring him back!
Elaine R., Brixton
There has to be someone who takes the stick for making the first move. Hopefully with this support the balance will move back to supporting him and his drive for logical policies.
Everyone smokes, or has smoked, marijuana. Even the people who decided to remove Paddick. Moreover, everyone will still smoke, so what’s the harm in trying something new? I’m going to smoke now….!
Fully agree with Mr Paddick policies – Bring him back – Brixton needs him back.
Amanda L., Brixton
I think it is outrageous that his personal life should have anything to do with the radical but much overdue policies he is trying to implement. He is taking a risk and that will always make him subject to slander. I support his courage.
Sarah G., Lambeth
People who smoke cannabis don’t run around robbing people. They sit quietly in a corner. Bring Paddick back!
Ron B., Lambeth
One of the few reasonable coppers and he gets suspended.
Neil S., Brixton
Finally, there is a policeman the public like, support, and respond to and what happened? He is apparently penalised and moved. Please, Met, exercise some common sense and act in a way that is in your own interest. Return Brian Paddick.
Henry R., Lambeth
For God’s sake, cannabis should be legal. Keep up the good work. Xx
Flo C., Lambeth
Keep up the good work. Nothing wrong with cannabis.
Kim C., Lambeth
Deserves support and to be brought back to prominence.
Amy S., Lambeth
Lambeth’s had some bad experiences with the Met. Brian Paddick is a first, a senior policeman who seems to understand Brixton.
Lambeth needs Brian back. We’d like him in Peckham too!
Oonagh S., Peckham.
Deserves our support
Marlene S., Lambeth
I think Brian Paddick is in the wrong place at the wrong time – (scapegoat).
It’s about time we had some original thinking and some courage to see it through. Well done Brian. Good luck. You have our support.
Somebody wants to destro this mine – his line on cannabis is both right and inevitable.
Hilda B., Clapham
I wholeheartedly support the work of Brian Paddick and believe he has been the victim of a media witchhunt.. Good luck with the campaign.
Veronica R., Brixton
People trying to change things are usually criticised and vilified at first, but are usually proved right later on. Keep going!
Matt S., Lambeth
I support the work of Brian Paddick and believe his progressive ideas are a positive way forward.
Pete, Herne Hill.
Anyone targeting crack and heroin and not just coke should get our support.
Sally W., Lambeth
