London is grim, why would any of us want to live there anyway?
"Last year, nearly a quarter of a million people packed their bags and left the capital for good. This week alone in London, a medical student was stabbed to death in a Brixton fruit shop; a pupil who was expelled for allegedly having a knife took his school to the High Court; and a teenage girl underwent an unimaginable ordeal in an ordinary suburban street. What is going to happen to those of us left to live here if youths across the city continue running amok? London is a welcoming city, where home-grown and particularly international criminal networks are flourishing nicely. Somewhere in the city, a great termite's nest of law-breaking and corruption grows by the day." -- Seems like the flip side of international super-rich is the gangs of international criminals!
