BBC News: Johannesburg and London

An item on the news last night described an area of Johannesburg as having been a muggers' paradise, but now is more like... London.

1) Didn't that sound just a weeny bit superior and condescending?

2) Are we to believe muggings don't happen in London?

Maybe someone needs a word with the editor

Better than the Daily Mail which for the last four years or so has managed to include in every report of crime in South Africa that it is the venue for the 2010 World Cup.

To repay the compliment, if I ever blog about crime within 400 miles of London I'll add a reminder that it is the venue for the 2012 Olympic Games.
