SKETCH: There’s Been a 40% Reduction in Knife Crime Statistics

It was Home Office questions.

“What can be done about the appalling knife crime statistics?” you ask. It’s already been done. There’s been a 40 per cent reduction in knife crime statistics. And not just in the British Crime Survey but in NHS knife wound records. What does this mean? The NHS has poached its statisticians from the police. A triumph of best practice.

Andrew Bridgen said that Leicestershire police got less money per head than Northumbria police but had achieved a greater fall in crime figures than that northern wasteland of blackmailing, dog-fighting cage-warriors.

Jim Cunningham asked for the crime figures for the West Midlands but the minister didn’t have them to hand. Make them up, man! Don’t wait for someone to make them up for you. “There will be a 28 per cent fall in the violent crime figures in each of the next three quarters running up to the election.”

We were then told that “bus-related crime in Lewisham had fallen 14 per cent”. What an unimaginative statistic. Surely they can do better than that?

Jack Dromey struck a cautionary note talking of the “insult added to injury” for victims of crimes of violence when criminals got off cock-free. I think I heard that right.

Sczyvvyrn (pronounced Chevawn) McDonagh gave another puff to her campaign: the Bobby Tax. It’s like the Bedroom Tax in one regard – it’s not a tax.

Hopeful recruits pay £1,000 to take a test to get their Certificate of Knowledge in Policing, and then apply for a position without any guarantee of a job. It does sound scandalous but it’s a charge, a fee – totally unrelated to the Spare Room Subsidy (itself a misnomer).

What else? Did I hear Keith Vaz suggesting a Home Affairs sub committee set itself up at Luton airport on a permanent basis to send a message to the Daily Mail. I don’t think I did, in point of fact, but the point holds.

It seems 366 British citizens have gone to Syria to fight there – for whom we don’t know. Restrictions were demanded. What, even for the Christians? Or the Syrian People’s Secular Front?

Here’s a thought experiment. Would we have sought to track down and confine Brits who went to fight in the Spanish civil war? If not, what’s the difference in principle?

In ancilliary news: Yvette Cooper looks recovered from her slump. She will be taking credit for getting a hundred or so of Syrian children into this country as refugees. And people say politicians have no heart. Shame on you!

And finally, Peter Bone (he still gets the Speaker-treatment when his name called). He pointed out the 30 pages of New Clauses and the 50 Government amendments to the Immigration Bill in Report on Thursday.

Mrs May said the amendments were mainly technical, and there wouldn’t be more time allocated because that might mean they’d get to Nigel Mills’ deeply embarrassing amendment which might mean we’d have to leave the EU.

I don’t think she did put it quite in those words but her meaning was clear.

    Well

    Now we live in a wonderful Socialist multicultural paradise (as promised by the BBC and all Right-on people) crime is falling every day.

    Perhaps because our new guests live in their own communities, speak their own language, don’t involve our courts, police or services, and don’t integrate.

    How lucky we are to have completely alien communities in our country that don’t involve themselves without culture.

    HS2 is an EU idea, and it is not in the national interest.

    Catholocism = faimilies = southern europe

    Protestism = individuals rights = northern europe

    There is a didtinct biological reason for this/ Northeren europeans place less emphasis on family and mor on work, and in southern europe it is the opposite. These are based on biologically learnt behaviours and has nothing to do with proclivaty for work.

    There is also the J’ewish connection.

    I believe that The Foreign Enlistment Act of 1819 was intended to keep British Officers from making a fortune leading South American armies and its successor, the Act of 1870 was intended to do the same during the Franco-Prussian War. No successful prosecution has ever been made under either of the Acts, either in the Balkan Wars, the Spanish Civil War or when British subjects joined, for instance, the French Foreign Legion. It has been a bit of a political bother at times as certain folks in Whitehall have been delighted that people they can rely on have joined other people’s armies, as with Jordan, Oman, Rhodesia, South Africa and especially freelancer outfits like Mike Hoare, Jack Schramme, Executive Outcomes and Sandline.

The german navy also deployed Deutschland and Admiral Scheer, the light cruiser Köln, four torpedo boats and at leaset 2 U boats to the theatre, with varying degrees of direct involvement.

    Of the approximate 78,500 Italian men sent to Spain by Mussolini, 3,819 were killed and about 12,000 were wounded.

    Funny old thing, I was just looking this case up a couple of hours ago in order to make a smart-alec comment about Lib-Dem’s future in Brussels. It seems the story was never resolved.

    I had a leaflet posted through my door that said if I voted for AV it would cost the country a trillion pounds and babies in incubators would die.

    Here it is:-

    They were claiming it would cost £10 to count each vote. Strange really as it is very similar to the methods used to select the London Mayor.

    The Yes to AV campaign was in the lead right up until those leaflets came through people’s doors.

    I want to see a much more balanced system. One vote for every £500 you pay in tax. So I would get about 36 votes and someone on the charity known as bennies wouldn’t get any. That seems much fairer.

    The 2 facedness is a normal reaction when dealing with an enemy.
    Lovers and poets born in Ireland know we English are their brothers in song and mystery and are not enemy, rather pals ( young guns ) for a commonness of being and in affirmation of spiritual ( curses might be real ) stuff

    There were a million men involved in the Spanish civil war, so quite frankly, if you were looking for Nazis, you’d have to have been looking very hard. Especially as most of the Nazis were in planes, ships or submarines.

    To suggest that the Brits that went off to fight in the Spanish Civl war were fighting Hitler is silly.

    What was the point of the Inquisition getting rid of the Chews and Muslims and Franco getting rid of the Lefties–if they all grew back again, like mould?

    Bit like the Better Together campaign.

    Everyone in the UK will die if Scotland gains independence.

    It’s very difficult to come to any rational conclusion about nearly anything theses days.

    It’s ironic as we are all bombarded with too much rubbish.It takes time to sort through the shit for the diamonds.It’s worth the effort though.

    I would take exception with your view.I don’t pay income tax at present.I pay lots of other taxes though. How may legions of civil servants would it take to implement your system & at what cost?

    not having been to Cork I dunno ( why would anybody want to go to Cork ? )

    George Orwell fought in the Spanish Civil War and, on seeing the methods of the Soviet NKVD out there, came back with very different views on Communism. In fact, he felt compelled to write some books about it.

    Even more to the point: why did my father and grandfather fight in two World Wars in order for us to be enriched to extinction and ruled by Foreign Powers?

    Jimmy says:

    The broad truth about the war is simple enough. The Spanish bourgeoisie saw their chance of crushing the labour movement, and took it, aided by the Nazis and by the forces of reaction all over the world. It is doubtful whether more than that will ever be established

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
