On the heels of the recent comments of the unelected Prime Minister Gordon Brown it is easy to see why Britain has massive problems in crime.


The most violent country in Europe: Britain is also worse than South Africa and U.S.

Britain's violent crime record is worse than any other country in the European union, it has been revealed.

Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa - widely considered one of the world's most dangerous countries.

The figures come on the day new Home Secretary Alan Johnson makes his first major speech on crime, promising to be tough on loutish behaviour.

The Tories said Labour had presided over a decade of spiralling violence.

In the decade following the party's election in 1997, the number of recorded violent attacks soared by 77 per cent to 1.158million - or more than two every minute.

The figures, compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show:

•        The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.
•        It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
•        The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.
•        It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offences than recorded in Germany and France.

But it is the naming of Britain as the most violent country in the EU that is most shocking. The analysis is based on the number of crimes per 100,000 residents.

In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.

Because they emphasize on the "rights" of the criminals? instead of the victims.

Austria is a big surprise.

Uncontrolled immigration has led to more crime in Britain.

I like multi-culture but we've let to many thugs in not to mention terrorists.

St George

The government is big on speeding and parking fines.

£328 Million in Parking Fines Collected Last Year.



But useless at everything else.

Anglo bashing was always a sport here for some weird forum members.

Now it has reached another quality after the execution and it is seems quite opportune.
