Migrant crime toll rising

Recommended Posts

Strange how the article in The Star doesn't mention any numbers to back up this claim? Only that its takes three times as long to book non-English speaking prisoners in and that staff are 'stretched' :suspect:

Well, of course, the whole story COULD be false but one aspect of it seems obviously true ; to wit :- It 's only common sense, surely, to see that people who have no command of English, or very little, might well benefit from having an interpreter. Lo & behold, interpreters cost money ! Also, it 's highly probable that because immigrants are disproportionally young males, they will tend to committ more crimes than a cross-section of the population. It 's the same with our own indigenous villains, isn 't it ? Whatever the whys and wherefores it seems pretty clear that immigration, in this particular case, costs the U.K. quite a lot of money and the O.P., quite rightly, suggests that this is often denied by many people. I wonder why ?

And presumably all we native Brits are being right little goody-goodies, and standing by to act as Batman? Crime has gone up in toto,so it seems a little unnecessary to highlight only one area. Incidentally, the individual who offered extreme violence because of something my learner driver did yesterday was very obviously British, as was the guy who broke in to my car twice.

Will do the interpretation industry good though, which has to be a plus in these hard times :hihi:

Where does it say there's a migrant crimewave? It just says it's costing more to process migrant offenders.

Then its obviously a false story, no base in fact then, dreamed up by the far right,as ever to make cheeky mischief, and rouse the West side living liberals on here.

Why do you call the West side living folk liberals, I lived in the west of sheffield for many years and I am anything but a softie liberal twit!

Would I be right in thinking this would mainly be people of a non English origin though?

Hmmmm 'Migrant crime toll rising'

 

Nowhere is the Star's article does it say that the number of crimes is rising, just that the time taken to process non english speaking crims is three times longer.

 

Of course, with the influx of immigrants the crime rate is bound to go up pro rata, which should be dealt with, but as usual the Star prints an article designed to induce hate.

Your pro rata argument is belied by the statistical evidence. According to Home Office figures, the UK prison population in 2008 was around 82,000, of which no less than 12,100 were born abroad. These means that around 1 in 7 prisoners in UK jails is likely to be a foreigner. Moreover, this proportion has risen quite dramatically in recent years, coinciding with the Labour government's abandonment of tough immigration controls.
