People from Liverpool who aren't that different from anyone else, except we don't slag off other cities as much as everyone else slags us off.
The myth of scousers as criminals is usually reinforced by right wing toffs and the gutter press, who've never visited Liverpool - probably because we don't tolerate third-hand bigoted remarks from people who can afford a 'good education'.
Merseyside, with Liverpool at its centre, is one of the safest metropolitan areas in the UK according to Home Office statistics. A decline in the number of crimes reported per 100,000 of the population, has made Merseyside the third safest metropolitan area behind Northumbria and South Yorkshire - burglary rates are at their lowest levels for more than twenty years. Which probably explains why Ive heard so many students saying they feel safer in Liverpool than they do back home.
Don't believe the crap written about us.
