Here be dragons

Via Tim Worstall, I see that the Hungarian government has upset British diplomats by dishing out leaflets saying that Britain has “no-go” zones as a result of its immigration policies.  This follows the row a few weeks back over Air China warning its passengers to be careful in areas of London populated by swarthy folk.

I cite the above merely to remark on the warnings our own Foreign Office gives to British citizens travelling abroad, which either:

1) Warn travelers to stay away from a place which has just witnessed some one-off catastrophe which is all over the news and in which thousands of people have been killed. This warning appears on their website two days after the event.

or

2) Warn travelers to stay away from a country in which something of minor consequence has happened that nevertheless got the British media excited, and life is going on as normal.

  1. “Warn travelers to stay away from a country in which something of minor consequence has happened that nevertheless got the British media excited, and life is going on as normal.”

    Which means stay out of Chicago, Philadelphia and (of late) Charlotte.

  2. Yet strangely blue eyed pasty faced me seems to be able to wander through even the bleary parts of London (which are vastly smaller than they were thirty years ago) without getting mugged. The reason I avoid London’s few remaining shitholes is they are charmless rather than particularly dangerous.
