Just in case any of the foreign students being mugged in Thanet don't know it, news today that:
"On the orders of a government agency, gangs of teenage criminals should no longer be called "gangs" because it might offend them.
Instead they should be referred to as 'groups' and their crimes described as 'group-related'.
The instruction comes from the Youth Justice Board, which organises probation, training and detention for under 18s.
It echoes the decision by the Metropolitan Police three years ago to drop the phrase "gang rape" and replace it with "group rape".
Ed: The Oxford English Dictionary says a gang is "any band or company of persons who go about together or act in concert (chiefly in a bad or deprecatory sense, or associated with criminal societies)".
So that's alright then, make sure you identify the thugs as being from a group and not a gang!
By the way, the video is from a popular YouTube production which reportedly shows the youths in the background burgling a house as a group of policemen stand outside.
