In a city being plagued by knife crime, it’s often the case that other dangerous objects are sidelined by the news. Not for Boris, however, who has recently come out to state that we have to do something about people who are using dogs as weapons. There’s no way of getting round the fact that dogs specifically bred for their viciousness can be a real threat to human life, and as such I think it can only be a good thing that attention is being drawn to them. I imagine the RSPCA would agree, as latest figures predict almost 800 dangerous dogs will have been picked up in the financial year 2008-9.
Is Boris right to highlight this issue, or should he be focusing on more important issues? What do you make of this?
