    From the link:

    The report, published by think tank the Institute for Economics and Peace, ranked 163 countries by 23 factors, including
    murder rate, political terror, and deaths from internal conflict

    17 of the 31 safest countries in the world are in the EU; that must be very disappointing for those US right wingers who thnk the EU, particularly Germany (17th) & Sweden (14th), have large swathes of lawless 'no go' areas.

    So when there is a United Ireland we can expect Ireland to fall in the rankings and the UK to rise?

    Maybe, though Belfast is one of the cities I have felt safest going out in, even in the early 1990's.

    That's right. I've walked, alone, across various boundaries deep in the night but it is changing as longer licenses allow more groups to be about later. I still take a detour around a couple of hostelries on my own after the rugby and before the last train.
