More of an indication of the state of Journalism (or the irresponsibility of it) today Peter. In addition to the size of the survey, the "article" talks about "perceived threats" which to a degree are due to articles like this. I'm sure we all know people who are constantly saying how dangerous certain areas of Coventry are and when you ask them if they ever go there or seen any problems, they tell you they've not been there for years as it's too dangerous! I seem to spend half my time trying to convince people that you can go out in Coventry and return home without being a victim of crime.

Hi all Wave Hardly an hour goes by without some damning report regards our NHS. Two Coventry GP surgeries are in "special measures", as well as constant issues regards our main hospital, the uncertain future of nearby hospitals like the George Eliot in Nuneaton. I am so grateful for our NHS, so much so, that I was an objector to having free company medical cover. This was on my Facebook page this morning. Sad

If you thought your services were already stretched, London councils are going to start sending you more people. Grrrrrr Hands up who thinks that they won't return the favour.

Hi all, Hi Helen Wave The pattern of crime stats over the last twenty years here in the West Midlands gives the answer to that, but for me to say any more may breach civil "free speech" tolerence regulations. What is fact, which all adds to the issue, is that the West Midlands receives the lowest level of social investment per head of population of any metropolitan area & lower than that of Northern Ireland, Wales & Scotland. The handouts dished out by Whitehall always ensure that London takes the lion's share of all, by a huge margin.

Hi all & yes very sad MR. Sad There is so little deterrent against such crime. Often, if it's youngsters involved, when those responsible are identified, mitigating circumstances are given such as that they are disadvantaged, along with all of the other lists of excuses. Mrs. Thatcher tried to introduce a "parents responsibility bill" in parliament, which would have made parents, absent or otherwise, financially responsible for their children's conduct, but the opposition threw it out.

When I had an allotment I never had my shed burnt down, but it was repeatedly broken into. It seemed like every week the chain on the gate was cut and someone had broken into the shed (breaking the glass, pulling the door off its hinges, etc.). It really is disheartening, I don't think they realise the amount of work people put into these allotments. But you do see the good in people as well (people trying to fix your gate and trying to repair things).
