Think there isn't a property link?

Guardian: Aamir Siddiqi murder: killers jailed for stabbing teenager by mistake

Think again. Like the chap with the knife in front of Buckingham Palace, isn't it interesting how the gradual property collapse manifests itself in the media not with editors addressing it directly but with a series of disconnected tragedies whose root cause is always a failed property investment deal our a collapsed property empire.

Another example of how the banning of guns for the use of self defense by the citizenry, combined with human rights legislation which protects criminals, turning Britain into the violent crime capital of the world. More violent crime even than South Africa for goodness sakes:

Analysis of figures from the European Commission showed a 77 per cent increase in murders, robberies, assaults and sexual offences in the UK since Labour came to power.

A lot of crime was imported - a side effect of the lack of proper immigration controls. Labour, and Blair, obviously believed their own rubbish and thought the good times would continue forever, so that all would find work.

I see that Piddly is back on top form:

"Britain into the violent crime capital of the world. More violent crime even than South Africa for goodness sakes"

Well according this there were 16,000 murders a year in S Africa and fewer than 1,000 in the UK, and the UK has a larger population.

And the UK isn't the most violent western European country either (on basis of deaths per 1,000 inhabitants, FL, LUX, Belgium and Finnland are slightly worse)). I bet if you strip certain parts of London out the figures, the rest of the UK is as safe as anywhere else in Western Europe.

@1 - Apparently in the US most gun deaths occur inside gun-owning families when wives shoot husbands or husbands shoot wives, or when one of the two use a gun to commit suicide, or allow a child to find and use it in the house against a parent or sibling or on other children.

The Second Amendment, used by pro-gun lobbyists, restricts guns to 'well regulated militias'.

In the 130 school shootings (defined as at least one person dead or injured from gunshot wounds) since Columbine, police in every case got there after the shootings ended, so not much protection from armed police in that shere at least.
