  • I often get asked by Americans if it is safe to come to London?

    They all seem to think anywhere in Europe is dangerous. I checked the figures. In 2015 there were 26 firearms fatalities in the UK. In the USA over 26000 were shot dead and over 29000 seriously injured by guns!! And they are scared to come here! What is it about them?

  • Good places to visit in London?

    Best answer: You would find loads of places within "Zone 1" of the underground network. Just get off at a random station and explore around the surrounding area and you would soon find 1 or 2 interesting museums/ galleries to visit. Try South Kensington station - it's full of Musuems

  • Is Northern Ireland a country?

    Best answer: It is variously described as a country, region and province. It is what is left of what was once the entirety of the island of Ireland which was once entirely a country of the U.K. Now only Northern Ireland is a part of the U.K. and the rest of the island is the Republic of Ireland, a separate country.

  • What would protect london from a light aircraft crashing into Buckingham palace? Lots of small airfields dotted around the m25 15 miles away?

    Best answer: It is not a likely hazard. Light aircraft are indeed light. A terrorist could do a lot more damage by ramming a target with a lorry than by crashing a light 'plane into it. (Look at WW2 cases where crashing fighters, heavier and faster than most modern light 'planes, got lodged in roofs, trees, etc. without... show more
    Best answer: It is not a likely hazard. Light aircraft are indeed light. A terrorist could do a lot more damage by ramming a target with a lorry than by crashing a light 'plane into it. (Look at WW2 cases where crashing fighters, heavier and faster than most modern light 'planes, got lodged in roofs, trees, etc. without demolishing the whole structure). In the 1946 Ruislip crash, a Dakota - no lightweight - got lodged on the roof of a semi-detached without injuring any of the occupants - https://www.flickr.com/photos/89207625@N... Note that although the Dakota had demolished the roof, the house windows were not broken.

    Given that it is much easier to find a lorry and a driver than get hold of a 'plane and pilot, and lorries do a lot more damage, terrorists are unlikely to make the effort.

    If the event happened, I doubt the RAF could do much about it. Fighters are meant for tackling other fighters - one encountering a light 'plane buzzing around low over areas where you don't want blazing debris falling would be in a situation rather like a man armed with a shotgun being bothered by a wasp flying around his face.

    Best answer: Greater London is a county and region of England. London is the city within its borders. The county of GL has only ceremonial powers, with a Lord Lieutenant and a High Sheriff that represents the Queen within London. There is no government period over the regions of England anywhere, and it is mainly used for statistical purposes.

    Although only the tiny City of London and the borough of Westminster has city status within GL, the whole area (all 33 districts) is governed as a single city. It has a Mayor of London and an elected assembly, including over the Cities of Westminster and London. The individual boroughs has local councils and mayors subordinate to the Mayor of London.

    The UK does not incorporate local areas into cities, towns and villages, like the US does. There is an old time tradition within the UK that allows the Queen the ability to bestow city status upon individual boroughs and districts within the UK. But unlike US style incorporation, obtaining city statues in the UK comes with no real special privileges, other than the ability for the district to call itself a "city," have a ceremonial Lord Mayor instead of a regular mayor, and call its council a "City Council." No special powers comes with it.
