I read Peter Smith's report on Melbourne and all I can say is that he is a bitter person as I have lived in Melbourne for 60 years and I find its a beautiful city like all large cities there is some violence at night especially at the weekends when some people get drunk nothing like what Peter if you believe Its the worst city for crime yet its been voted the most liveable city for 2011.
