Out of London?
Oh Kat, Harringay will crumble into ruins without you. But, if you insist on escaping life on earth, I'm sure there'll be a spaceship or three for Proxima Centauri's planet Proxima B along any decade now. Just about four light years away - your Oyster Card should cover it.
Thanks so much for the concern.
That's a very interesting idea!!! We did find a handmade "shanking knife" in Fairland Park during the cleanup and the only dangerous bit about it was the point.
The problem is a sharp kitchen knife is unnecessarily efficient at hurting/injuring someone and is in everyone's kitchen drawer. This was a suggestion mooted by an anti-knife crime campaign.
Actually I found the link to the report concerned on the BBC:
The proposal came from three emergency medicine specialists, and it's a simple one: getting rid of the points on the ends of longer kitchen knives.
Drs Emma Hern, Will Glazebrook and Mike Beckett wrote an editorial in the British Medical Journal, suggesting that since "many assaults are impulsive", government action could "drastically reduce the availability" of a "potentially lethal weapon".
So what would the effect have been if, in 2003, the government had persuaded knife manufacturers to offer a greater range of styles, with the pointed-end, long-blade design no longer the default?
Dr Beckett puts it simply: if long pointed knives had become less available, we would have seen fewer deaths from knife injuries.
Run someone over in your car. Plead SMIDSY and get off. #easy.
The fewer options you have to kill someone the less chance you'll make a rash decision. Just look at America.
Increase funding and resources I imagine.
