Efficient productivity, a strong currency (and no, not so strong that exports suffer), a lack of corruption, enthusiastic foreign investment, a confident business sentiment and sensible planning all mean increased job creation and low crime levels. Do we have this - no. The official police stats show crime levels up. Would we blanche further if we could see unofficial stats? Why does the police service do its own audit?

So normal has this violent crime become that a mere fraction of those deaths made it to the newspapers at all, never mind making front page news.
