    So reading that I find a few things lacking. And im not belitteling anyone here. but i always find the quoting of some statistics should be in full to provide context.

    1) Figures rose 32% last year. I would like to know has foot traffic increased also, which would indicate per capita, or percentage of population using the transport network has increased. if percentage per capita increased "ok", but if human traffic increased by 50%, then per capita the assault rate actually decreased.

    2) women only cabins is a step backwards, but it also doesnt take into account sexuality. e.g. lesbians can also assault women.

    3) "a campaign group, has also previously shown that 43 per cent of women aged between 18 and 34-years-old living in London had experienced sexual harassment in public spaces." --- but this quote does not reflect directly on the transport system, but on all public spaces. Granted it just shouldnt happen at all.
    but in the context of discussing trains transport only it is misleading.

    4) "Of the total, 21 per cent classified the abuse as unwanted sexual attention and 4 per cent said they had been physically touched by someone"
    Having observed behavior on the luas myself, i have seen men say hello to women, well dressed office men with coffee in hand saying hello to similarly profession dressed women, the two times i took note of it were when the women approached security on the luas in a practical fit (they guys said hello, and small talk trying to talk to them, but not sexual or harrassment, just conversation) is this classed in there with it as unwanted attention or in the reports.

    In closing, I dont want to make light of a genuine issue, just hae it taken in context, i dont see enough information here to satisfy my own curosity and am always cautious of media hype.

    p.s luas security is a joke.

    4) "Of the total, 21 per cent classified the abuse as unwanted sexual attention"

    Does this mean 79% did not class it as unwanted or to even go further class it as wanted?

    It should be noted that Corbyn has as much chance of ever becoming Prime Minister of the UK, as the Pope does of becoming a Protestant.
    This nonsense is just another example of creeping Sharia law that the political left silently endorses.

    The Labour party leader campaign is a slow slow train crash happening. Any leader that joins forces with Trade Unions to get the party leadership is kissing their own death

    This is an acknowledgement that the law isn’t being enforced.
    If the police were doing their job...........
    What next? Segregation at work?

    Happy days , as long as the fella's get there own carriages too........ with a bar

    Would it just not be better for transport police to actually police the trains, would be cheaper than new rolling stock. Also why does everyone else on the train that witnesses such behaviour help the ladies in question. Not sayin to get all Charles Bronson , but at least stand up and let the lady in question know that you are aware of the situation and also to the dick that you will not just sit and let it go.
