I seem to recall some proposed legislation changes being kicked around in the UK following the rapid increase in knife (and acid) attacks, but that was a year or so back? I have the feeling that the razor blade thing is mostly as an anti-theft measure - like for higher priced alcohol - it's been around quite some time.
That's my understanding too.

[QUOTE=Expatrick;12650594]Hmmm, that's an odd one, certainly get them in supermarkets (etc) here.

Interestingly knives of all sizes & types (& I mean all) are freely on sale here but knife / violent crime is mercifully rare. I don't know if it is still true but it used to be de rigeur for men to carry penknives (as many small boys used to in the UK).

In Hungary (according to the last Police report) the biggest bunch of criminals are the pensioners![/QUOTE]

You sure ?
From what I have seen & heard reported on TV & Radio ,I am lead to believe its was Politicians

Don't start me on that one, I am still fuming from the misinformation / bias displayed by the BBC earlier this week during interviews with Hungarian politicians!

Yes, I am aware of that. Unfortunately Hungary has become one of the favourite bete noires of the so called liberal press.

I think a lot of it is related to 'borders and how to protect/police them' which is quite high up in the sheep public mindset at the moment.

What a post looks like if you don't fix quotes.

Absolutely, but of course the whole issue has been distorted & exaggerated.

The headline is "anti migrant" but of course that is patently untrue, the Govt. is opposed only to a specific sub set of migrants, based upon well documented issues & experiences elsewhere.

Is this just (ha, just!) part of a campaign against Viktor Orban on the part of the BBC? Alongside the EU and the EPP...

What's the mood like towards Orban within the country?
