OP.... Funny how the crime rate in the UK is at a higher rate then any other European Country, South Africa & apparently the USA!!!
I wonder if these new stats have anything to do with all these Europeans & Africans moving over here makes sense to me if you think about it logically!!!!
Obviously if all the ones committing crime are moving here the crime rate will go up!!!

This is what happens when misfits and malcontents move into a country.
People who are fleeing from something may well have reason to flee if war has occured, but in normal circumstances why are we allowing such misfits into the country to breed even more misfits?
If your not part of any "gang" you are pretty safe in London

Here we have another piece of proof that gun control does not work.
The poor British who were once able to defend themselves in the face of violent crime
The British people should organize and reinstate their right to keep and bare arms so that they might better protect themselves. If criminals knew their prey would likely fight back with lethal force I am sure crime rates would drop dramatically.
I feel fortunate to live in the UK where there are only two kinds of thugs carrying guns: criminals and the police. So far I've had more contact with armed police than with armed crims.
I feel fortunate that I live in the US where my basic right of self defense is recognized and I am able to carry a gun with me every day.
Gun control is evil.
What say you all? Opinions for or against in the face of this hard data?
There are also degrees of violence. While the UK ranks above South Africa for all violent crime, South Africans suffer more than 20,000 murders each year - compared with Britain's 921 in 2007.
