I’ve never been scared

“I’ve never been scared on this street and I live on the main street now. You get the odd pro with a mouth up and down the street at night. I’ll stand out the front in my pyjamas saying goodbye to a girlfriend … or I’ll walk out to my car in my PJs and get something out of the boot. I don’t care – it’s my driveway! You know, it’s Port, we don’t care. But I’ve never been scared either because I’ve always worked with the junkies either cleaning up after them, going into squats and picking up needles. And I’ve talked to them, I’ve treated them like normal human beings.”
