Terrible things happen in the world, and this is just another example that we can read and make comments about, such as:
The English have this reputation that they carry knives
which don't help anyone in the slightest.
I think only the nutters...not everybody.....
I'd agree, but go a little further, to say not even all the nutters carry knives.
Read the article and you will notice that it was her ex who carried out the attack.
People fear crime. Mostly they fear crime from random strangers, thugs out in the street and so on. But it is always far more likely that attacks, murders and attempted murders are carried out by people known to the victims.
I hope she and her boyfriend (who is in a much worse state apparently) make a full recovery, and that the sick individual who attacked them gets the punishment he deserves.
