    London - one of the big business capitals of the world, people used to runaway to London, how long will it be before they are running away from the place, in the last 24 hours 4 people have been stabbed to death!! and 1 is in hospital (critical).

    It's important to note that a lot of the stabbing are gang related but not all of them.

    This is an awful shame and very frightening.

    Then you have the ever present danger of a terrorist attack (they aren't gonna blow up some little village,are they?)

    You're being a bit misled by media spin there buddy. There are no more stabbings then there were 5 years ago, probably less, its just that stab stories sell papers at the moment.

    I'm papercaves on the Twitter. This is mah Tumblr and I'm ulysseys31 on PSN :D

    No.

    You idiot.

    let's look at crime rates for US cities shall we?

    But if you really want a dangerous city you should try Johannesburg, or maybe Bogota in Colombia.

    London's not even close.

    here are some properly dangerous countries for you

    You'll note that Scotland is considerably above England and Wales in murders per 100,000 people, which suggests London might not even be the most dangerous city in the UK.


    Of course, if you are looking at total number of murders per city, London will have a higher figure than any other city in the UK and most of them in Europe, but that's because greater London is fucking ENORMOUS. There's 10 million people in greater London, more than in many countries.
    Try to keep that in mind will you.

    The Met Police website shows 160 murders for the whole of London in the 12 months to March 08.

    Now look at San Salvador. If Carlsberg made terrifyingly dangerous murdertowns

    With 1.6 million people San Salvador had 450-odd murders in 2006. London, with vastly more people, has far less.

    Seriously are you fucking retarded? Does all the media have to do is throw a little sensationalized reporting out on a hook and you'll bite it?

    Listen, the best way to determine if the city is the most dangerous in the world is to compare it's YEARLY statistics on a broad measure of crimes with other cities. Don't look at your news stations paniced cries of anarchy and react as you have: as a fucking fucktard that can't fucking think for himself but can only be told what to fucking think, you stupid fuck.

    Also, you are hereby banned from Eurogamer. You are no longer allowed to post or even lurk on the forums, in fact you are no longer allowed to even think of Eurogamer in any manner and my decision is final.

    Historically the most dangerous place on earth is Israel. Currently Zimbabwe and Iraq are probably worse but there will never be peace in Israel as to many different factions believe it should belong to them.

    But if you look at the British Crime Survey, and ignore the crimes that have stayed static or fallen, then crime is clearly rising and we're all going to die.

    It was a very stupid fucking question, and just by asking it you show that you don't know the answer which not only makes you look like an idiot, but be an idiot in fact.

    Highest percentage of murders per person in Western Europe according to Channel 4.
    I can't provide links 'cos I'm on the PS3, but I typed Glasgow murder rate into Google, and theres loads of examples.
    It has 3 times the murder rate of London.
