Country of crime: UK becomes criminals’ paradise under Tories

Last Updated: January 24, 2020By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Criminals must love the fact that we’ve had a Conservative government for nearly 10 years, allowing law-breaking to skyrocket.

We can put part of it down to the fact that Theresa May cut police numbers by more than 20,000.

But This Writer would also say that the Tories have encouraged criminal behaviour with divisive policies that set societal groups against each other.

So you get violence against people of different ethnic or religious groups, against people who are disabled, or who have long-term illnesses.

All of these have been endorsed by the behaviour of different Conservative ministers.

And now we see that the number of reported crimes in England and Wales leading to a person being charged – never mind convicted – has halved since 2015, falling from one in seven to one in 14.

The figures show that in the year to September 2019, knife crime had risen to an all-time high. Weren’t the Tories going to crack down on that?

At least fatal stabbings had fallen by 20 per cent – although that may be entirely due to circumstances in the communities, and nothing to do with the Tories or the police.

Likewise, murder and manslaughter fell, with the number of recorded deaths at a still-monstrous 617.

Robberies – thefts from people, accompanied by threats of violence – were up, though, by 12 per cent.

Perhaps people realised they weren’t going to get any help from the police so they might as well come out with some cash.

It is a terrible decline for the country that introduced police to the world, back in the 19th century.

This Writer has been lucky enough not to have to report a crime to the police recently – but I know people who have, and I know the reception they’ve had.

It was very poor.

Genuine crimes are being ignored, and the victims fobbed off with feeble excuses.

Tories don’t care. They can afford private security.

And don’t you get the feeling they begrudge providing the rest of us with any resort to the law at all?

    The Police turn up in force in my neighbourhood AFTER the fact, every time there is a shooting or stabbing there are armed cops on the streets and temporary cordons in place, but are nowhere to be seen the rest of the time. And I never see any Police patrolling the town centre either, unless there’s a football match on.
