You'd love Yorkshire...more hills than you can shake a stick at, small friendly communities, and the best beer in the world


Aye when theres no Yorkshiremen around
Yorkshiremen are like Scousers but without the car stealing skills, Best beer my left testicle, we use Yorkshire brews to wash the pipes out of the Newcastle BA pumps


Yorkshire is now known as the Peoples Islamic State of Yorkistan

Stop worrying and make life easier for the rest of us by getting on and making plans to survive with your family.

I just said this same thing to my sister tonight.

I was horrified to learn of a murder at the grocery store near my parents and sons home!! I told my sis, its starting.

This comes after learning of the horrible mass murder today. Just awful times.

It's purely down to economics now. The applications are flying out. I can't drop everything and just move hoping to land a job... not just yet anyway. Not only would my loan repayments die a death if I did that (not an option. my mess, my solution) but the good lady would possibly castrate me if wound up on her doorstep with no means of support.

I am not yet financially secure enough to drop everything and I don't like the idea of sponging off taxpayers, particularly ex-military residing in the North East!

For all my protestations I know I must endure until I get an offer or a P45.
Call it character building.

I dont think anything's starting now, atleast not here.

I've checked my local Police logs and not a bit of difference.

I even checked Huron County -- that's in northern Ohio -- they have an unemployment rate of 18.3 percent. It's one of the highest in the nation. There's only a few counties nationwide that are higher than Huron. And think about that. One in five people in Huron County are without a job.

Seems you're obviously well placed to pick up on any signs of 'social tremors' in advance of the coming storm than the majority around you. But I'd suggest taking a step back and looking at the wider picture.

1-in-5 unemployed are going to find it very difficult to make ends meet, especially once interest rates start to climb in the near future (an inevitable as they can't fall any further from practically 0%) and basic commodities such as food, electricity, and fuel begin to increase in price, and adjustments to welfare payouts trailing behing the actual rise in inflation

For those caught in such a situation, that inevitable will make life even more stressful, and of those 1-in-5, some will resort to desperate measures of theft and other criminal black-market activity just to make basic ends meet

All I can suggest is to keep a track of property-related crime via your quoted source as an indicator and stay aware

No offence. But you do really need to get out a bit more. This site is making you paranoid.

I can't live all that far from you, I'm in Southern Scotland about 40 miles south of Glasgow. It's quiet & rural. There's no food shortages of any kind whatever, no "cattle rustling", no thefts of petrol (it's called petrol incidentally, not gas ... or perhaps your post is specifically tailored to the US audience, points mean prizes I guess), there's no "gangs of the unemployed" roaming about a la Mad Max and there's been no spike in demand for shotgun ammunition either (local farmers haven't reported a recent influx of mad dogs).

I live in nowhere land and have spent and enjoyable couple of days out in my garden, chatting away to passing tourists many of whom are sensible, well rounded Americans who take no notice of hysteria such as yours.

This whole forum is full of barmy bonkery today, yours is just a typical example.

Take the long-view...not just at what is happening today

If nowt happens, then you have a pantry full of food anyway and wont have to shop for a good while, plenty of gear to head out to the hills in terms of safe fell walking with, and be able to cope with whatever the elements throw at you, and a few toys to play with..

nothing wrong with being prepared for the worst, enjoying for the best, and living between the middle of the two

I'm not worrying or stocking up for anything. Nothing against those who do, I just think its paranoia.

Here's an interesting article on "crime during dire economic times".

Experts: Bad Economies Don't Cause Crime Waves



There's only one problem: The Depression years had very little crime.

With the economy's current troubles, many people assume a crime wave is just around the corner. But criminologists say that's just an American myth.

Just look at the 1920s, says David Kennedy, director of the Center for Crime Prevention at John Jay College of Criminal Studies. continued...

I doubt the Yorkshire Fairtrade Coffee Riots of 2009 signal much. Must've been a really good offer on, buy one get one free ? Perhaps the OP can tell us which shop the riot took place in, I'll phone them to test his claims & perhaps grab a bargain while I'm at it.

If the OP is amenable I'll phone the gun shop, all the supermarkets & the "gas station" too. I've no doubt he's either making it all up or exaggerating some trivial incident for maximum effect. Meantime I'll stick to my initial interpretation of his post, it's "end times wank".

That is your view, and you are entitled to it.

However, I vividly remember the 3-day working week, electricity suddenly cutting out, fights in the supermarkets, and much more during the winter of 1979...I was only 7 y.o but learnt quickly that you cannot depend on anyone but yourself and those close to you in your community.

What happens when the threat of rising job losses are countered by the sleeping giant of the unions who cut off petrol road-tanker shipments?

The power workers who refuse to accept pay cuts and walk out leaving the electricity stations unmanned and non-productive and the internet and other basic powered infrastructure blacks out?

When the supermarkets, who at most carry at maximum, a 3-day stock inventory to cater to average demand and are hit by panic-buying as a result of a 10 o'clock news broadcast?

You might want to read and learn, you may pick up a useful trick or two for the next camping trip this summer, but don't be too quick to cast disparaging comment

There's reported crime to the authorities, and then there's crime that goes unreported that's dealt with outside of statistics. Methinks that that analysis only deal with the reported kind

Fair comment, but if you are skeptical WTF are you reading it for?, You clearly are not interested in survivalism so why hang around here, Two options you are either a very poor troll, or you are interested in survivalism but dare not admit it. Otherwise why are you here?
