My aged uncle and aunt lived in a mansion block looking down on Putney Bridge, near the Star and Garter. They got frightened by "all the violence and burglaries" and didn't want to toddle round to Putney High Street any more.

At a large meeting about this a very sensible copper said: "Put your hands up if you've burgled, or robbed on the street" : Nobody. "If you know the names of anybody that's been burgled or robbed": Still nobody. "If anybody whose name you know knows somebody who's been burgled or robbed": A few hands.

He, the copper, explained that this was the reality but that the perception was different.

I would say the same when I was squatting on the Lansdowne Green Estate. In the middle of riots, skins, glue-sniffers, smack-heads, steaming gangs, blues parties all night, the odd murder.

There is a strong sense of community in that area thanks to notorious civil servant skiver Mr Benn-

It makes no odds. Crimes are covered up, or the police alter the figures, or just SOMETHING.

Well, if people can come back from the shops in December and think they're banning Christmas, anything is possible.

My ageing rellies came to their senses, but I'm sure other people went on thinking there was a mugger under every lamp-post.

With only just over thirty members and an extravagant Grade II listed Moorish building, the tiny Jewish community of Bradford have for many years been in despair about their finances - until the local Muslim community stepped in to help.

The grand-looking Reform synagogue, is on an unassuming street, between the Yorkshire Tandoori, Al-Hijaab Islamic Clothing and the Jamia Shan-E-Islam Educational Centre.

Built in 1880, it has long been under threat of closure, but several Muslim organisations in the city have pledged to stop it falling into ruin, with donors giving £2,000 to save the synagogue's roof.

Has GKC seen this? It would go nicely alongside the Morden Mosque collecting for Poppy Day. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-20109337" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

(I taught the big kid in the black tee shirt that says 'Love to All and Hatred to None'.)
That's the mosque that included me in their prayers when I was ill, even though I'm an atheist...

However, the Mail still can't bring itself to mention that they used to Human Rights Act in order to extract the vital evidence.
