Default Not great PR for the Olympics!

Man stabbed to death at the stratford Westfield mall, I do wonder what whether we will see a surge in crime rates with some nice unsuspecting tourists?

Its all you ever see in papers and magazines at the moment.
Gangs of thieves,pickpockets etc all swarming in from Romania and other countries to have a field day.Prostitues renting flats as near to the stadium as possible so they can cash in.
Sadly,I am pretty sure they will make a fortune off the back of this.

But the shopping mall was built there because of all the development/Olympics so customers would not need to go into Oxford st so it is kind of todo with it.Awful place for a mall if you ask me.

We've had surging crime rates for a while now. I don't expect it to be any different just because the Olympics is on.
