I feel safer in New York than in London. It was none other than the Mayor of London, Mr Ken Livingstone, who uttered these words. And he was right, the zero tolerance in New York has paid a handsome dividend. It is unfortunate that Mayor Ken doesn't follow Giuliani and Bloomberg's example. Unlike London, New York is spotless, you are not assaulted by beggars and there is a visual police presence. Strict codes are enforced on cab drivers and public transport works. Perhaps Mayor Ken should take note.
REGULAR readers of this column will be familar with my obssession with prices and in some cases rip-off Majorca. Right, here goes. Dinner for two in a good standard restaurant in central Manhattan with a bottle of wine cost 70 euros. Not a bargain but you could expect to pay similar in Palma. And now for Palma airport. Two beers and a packet of crisps cost 10 euros, similar order in London cost 2.90 pounds. And people say that Heathrow is expensive.
