Bad reputations are easily won, and hellishly hard to lose. When I tell people I'm working in The Meadows, St. Anns or heaven forbid, Hyson Green areas in Nottingham they recoil in horror. In reality they aren't the places they were a couple of decades ago. Yes just recently one of these areas suffered gun violence, and Nottinghamshire's best have felt the collars of a number of people at the weekend who are now heading for court. Bus as soon as something like that happens all the old assumptions about safety and crime resurface. I'm sure Moss Side is similar, nothing like the place it was, but this one incident reported nationally (as it should have been) leads journalists and politicians who should know better to resort to all the familiar cliches.
