Knife crime is on the rise.

Seventy-two people are stabbed or robbed at knifepoint in Britain every day, official figures have revealed.

Police recorded more than 26,000 serious knife attacks in the financial year to March 2009, an increase of six per cent on the previous year's total.




I have found that China is much safer than Britain.


Anybody else?

If you were to value the population of China at 1,300,000,000 and the UK at 60,000,000


That would represent 676,000 knife attacks a year in China.

28 gun crimes committed in UK every day

Police chiefs said the figures were concerning, while Tories said they showed Labour was "failing to combat violent crime and its causes". The Liberal Democrats said the data was "alarming".

There were 10,182 firearms offences in the year to the end of September compared with 9,755 in the previous 12 months - an increase of more than 400 crimes, or more than eight every week.

The rise is the biggest percentage increase since September 2004, when figures showed a five per cent increase in gun crimes.

While gun-related deaths were down, from 55 to 49, the number of slight injuries, threats and non-injury incidents linked to guns increased.


I would know how to get one through some very tasty geezers in Manchester.

From that I would assume quite easy.  A kind of a Guangxi thing.

St George

In that case watch out for a waiter who out of frustration suddenly goes on a violent rampage.


Then again for safetys' sake you could learn to use chopsticks.
