Are you serious ?

I have been told  about the multitudes of radicalized terrorists that harbor themselves in UK and in particular London.

There aren't multitudes - there are a few. News media concentrates on unusual and dramatic things and events.

Wasn't  there a   terrorist bombing incident a few years ago in the London Underground?

It was eight years ago. 51 people were killed - now that's not good, but something like three times that many people are killed on the roads in London every year (a figure that incidentally, like crime, is generally falling). The population of the city is over 8 million - your chances of being affected by either of these things are miniscule.

I have been told the high unemployment rate also is related to the muggiings in London.

I'll say it again - crime in London, the UK and much of the developed world is falling.

It does seem interesting that the two posters with most concerns are based in quite remote and sparsely populated parts of the world. I wonder if that affects perceptions of large urban areas.
