Phoenix Joe has just seen newly released statistics that you are more likely to get run over by a car than you are to go to prison for committing a knife crime in the UK. Which makes no sense of all the NuLab government claims to be getting tough on crime.

Most offenders are sentenced to something like "please stop being very naughty and if you do it again we are going to be very angry with you!" or "next time we are going to tell your Mum!"
