Default Nottingham Transport show

its been and gone, early June and one day avoided the horrendous weather we've 'enjoyed' of late..

the show includes a new car roadshow area, an enthusiasts area and then some trucks, busses (wtf?) and a fair so a good petrolhead fam day out in the beautiful grounds of Wollaton Hall, near enough to the city centre

the new cars are mostly nothing to get excited about for me, they had Honda there this year and some other stuff, while i ought to replace our fsmily car i probably wont as i have zero attention span for such shat. Central Lotus were there and an Alpine, which was a nice size but a bit underwhelming looks wise..

the enthusiast cars are much more interesting..


a really lovely condition E30

"some trucks, busses (wtf?)", Well it is called the transport show. Must be nice to have it named after you!

Did the have the usual Nottingham skills on show like car jacking, fastest torching award and fastest to steal an S2000 front bumper? etc.

this spiked my interest, we've all heard of fake news by now i guess so here is some real data

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulat...areadatatables

vehicle offences.. 463k total recorded there

edit to include populations as per ONS data

112k London per 8.8m --- 12.7k/m
57k North west per 7.5m --- 7.6k/m
57k South East per 9m --- 6.3k/m
53k West midlands per 5.8m --- 9.14k/m
45k Yorkshire per 5.45m --- 8.2k/m
44k East (Bedford, cambs etc) per
34k East Midlands per 4.77m --- 7.23k/m
27k South West per 5.6m --- 4.82k/m
16k North east per 2.6m ---6.15 k/m
14k Wales per 3.1m --- 4.5k/m

ranking by crime per population in a (likely pointless) effort to educate Rich that the Mail publish lies puts east mids mid table and at about 56% of the crime rate of London... hardly a hot bed by comparison then?

About 15% higher than the north east which is the 3rd 'safest' overall and the 'safest' of the urban areas (the two rural areas of south west and wales appear to have statistically lower crime across the board compared to the more population dense areas).. last night i left my car on charge, unlocked on my drive and noone jacked it, my missus drives around in a 400bhp V8, is tiny and has never been carcjacked once , nor has she fought them off with a Desert Eagle point five oh...

112k London per 8.8m --- 12.7k / m (crimes per million pop)
53k West midlands per 5.8m --- 9.14k/m
57k North west per 7.5m --- 7.6k/m
45k Yorkshire per 5.45m --- 8.2k/m
34k East Midlands per 4.77m --- 7.23k/m
44k East (Bedford, cambs etc) per 6.16m --- 7.14k/m
57k South East per 9m --- 6.3k/m
16k North east per 2.6m ---6.15 k/m
27k South West per 5.6m --- 4.82k/m
14k Wales per 3.1m --- 4.5k/m

we aren't exactly table toppers here in rainy Nottm , in fact the area is one of the safest

how's them Apples? Don't let that get in the way of hyperbole and BS though, keep reading the Mail and see where it gets you
