Do we need UN peacekeepers in Wiltshire?

Town Too Risky For South African Kids (from The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald)

SECURITY fears have led to the United Nations pulling out of a project to bring a group of disadvantaged schoolchildren from Malmesbury, South Africa, to their English namesake town.
Nine youngsters, aged between 11 and 13, were due to make the week-long trip in October.
However, the UN has withheld their £2,000 grant for the scheme as they feel the children's safety cannot be guaranteed with the current increased threat levels in the UK.

As a result of the decision, the children will not be able to make the journey.

Malmesbury South Africa Crime Statistics

Malmesbury Wiltshire Crime Statistics - Malmesbury seems to have the lowest rate of violent crime in the low crime area of North Wiltshire - the only crime rate above average are for Drug Offences, but then Prince Harry does party there....

Malmesbury, SA ain't the Cape Flats, but given "disadvantaged kids" is probably pc code for coloured or black, I'll guess these children have probably seen more by way of violence and criminality in their home communities than people twice their age in N Wiltshire.

Methinks the excuse is that thanks to Mad Doc Reidie's scaremongering about terrorism the UN has formed the opinion that the Bakaa Valley is a more peaceful place.

Nine less potential asylum seekers in the country is a good result as far as I am concerned.
