    Go to the main BBC site. Type "knife" into the search box. See what comes up first. Decide for yourself.

    Well - from my culinary experience a point is needed - instance filleting etc. Further to which - from a ''slashing'' POV - any knife, even short and with rounded end, can do plenty of damage.

    Let's remember box cutter blades in 9/11.

    So maybe ban anything and everything sharp and pointy eh - ???

    ''CUT'' crime - go blunt!!! :rolleyes:

    I anticipated this long ago - give em time and woodworkers will be outa work thru bans on screwdrivers, planes, chisels - oh my - the possibilities are endless. :uhoh: :mad:

    Oh - forgot spoons Steve!!!

    Well hell at this rate you won't. No knife to cut the meat, next spoons will be banned so that means no pudding - huh?

    Scissors - they gotta be banned too - sorry dressmakers - you are shafted.

    In truth I seem to remember a good many murders carried out with sharp (dirty word - ''pointy'' ) scissors over the years. yep - they gotta go!

    Plastic sporks are the answer obviously. Course you could poke your eye out. Hmmmmm maybe the government could just mandate that food be sold in conveniently cut pieces.

    You'll just have to take your meat and all else you want cut to your licensed local cutting station. :rolleyes:

    No buildings higher than 5' are allowed. Too many people jumping or being murdered by being thrown over.

    No unpadded cars, outside and inside. Speed limits no more than 15 miles per hour.

    Bathtubs to be filled no more than 6''. 12'' levels are allowed for fat people. The bathtub water level inspectors will make unexpected visits to check your water and fat levels.

    No fireplaces.

    No garages. They facilitate too many suicides.

    No exposed electrical cables, ropes, etc. longer than 3'. Too many suicides. Anything longer and it has to be breaktested to tear at 10 pounds.

    Soaps are illegal in bathtubs or showers. Too many fatal slips and falls. Just scrub with an abrasive spunge.

    hmmm I wonder if this idea is being directed by the mad dentists of the UK.. last time there, it looked to me, like there was a LARGE need, for the locals to cut their meat into little easy to chew bites..no offense.

    We need to ban the sale of long pointed kitchen knives (not joke)

    From the current British Medical Journal:

    Reducing Knife Crime

    Not a joke!

    merged this with already ongoing thread on the subject - P95Carry

    The Brits are a funny people, even my Irish grandparents thought so. I think they laughed all the way to the boat.

    God Bless America

    The Brits are good people, who are beside us, in many of our adventures..... they just might work to hard at being civilized...in this dog pound world.

    "Doctors call for Kitchen Knife Ban" is a bit different from "Britan to ban Kitchen Knives"

    What a sorry, despicable excuse for a nation!

    Perhaps, at great sacrifice to ourselves, we ought to send that Kerry creature, Mrs. Snopes Clinton, McCain, and that pathetic little Voinovich over there to straighten things out for the English.

    Ban pointy knives? The Brits would be better served by banning pointy-headed doctors who dream up wacky ideas like banning pointy knives.

    Heh - with that sort of intelligence going for 'em, when they ban forks (cause thier pointy too) and spoons (cause crooks took to using them instead, because they "hurt more") maybe they'll all starve to death over there... :rolleyes:
