    Also, if you look at the letters page of the Nottingham Post, nearly all the contributors live in Gedling, Broxtowe or Rushcliffe areas, and hardly any from inner-city areas, (where as the old "In the Courts" column in the paper back in the early 1990s - think of those who were fined for not having a TV licence and all that - it was the other way round). Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells would be Disgusted of Burton Joyce from a Nottingham perspective. I used to hate all this inner-city - suburb divide, and when Nottingham City Council became a unitary authority on April Fools' Day 1998, it felt to me as if it like scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    Thankfully, I now live close to the countryside than I do to the City Centre these days (thank the Lord), and I am just thankful that I have members of my own family who are knowledgeable in the ins and outs of the British housing system in which that had helped me to move. One day I hope to move to a village or somewhere like that.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    I am vaguely aware of high levels of violent crimes, including shootings, in Nottingham in the 2000s. Was a high proportion of it carried out by black Jamaicans?

    I wouldn't want to comment as I am not in an official position to do so - I always assume that crime committed can be of anyone regardless of race, age or nationality. Thankfully, Nottingham has never had a "Stephen Lawrence"-type killing, mostly because Nottingham news is more incognito from national perspective.
