Just once I'd like to see Harry say screw you to the Dursley's and run to the vault and get enough money to get a whole new wardrobe while he's there.
Is blindness and stupidity a pre requisit to working law enforcement in the UK? Dudders and his gang have been holy terrors for years around Little Winging and you never hear a peep from them. For that matter the childrens parents must LOVE the fact that Duddrees and his gang beet the hell out of them. They never say anything.

1: Maladjusting At The Dursleys (Author Response)
In the midst of all this fantasy about supernatural powers, we encounter a realist.
I can't say I disagree. Harry is about at an age where he could do what
Sirius did. Law enforcement in Little Whinging should stop eating
donuts and bust the pampered hooligans. But this is Rowling's world. JK
has made it pretty clear why Harry has to stay at the Dursleys; he has
constraints on him that Sirius didn't have.
About Dudley I'm not sure. Perhaps in HBP the constabulary will finally nail him.
