British press stepping up drumbeat for knife control
Scaring people increases circulation, and that increases ad revenue, so
The Daily Mail's headline is "Thugs committing 350 knife assaults EVERY DAY, as blade menace spreads to rural areas."
Times Online is more moderate: "Crime falls, but stabbings not just an urban problem."
The Telegraph leads with: "One person is a victim of knife crime every four minutes."
Not to mention: "Nike Air Stab trainer withdrawn after spate of knife murders."
