Good stuff!
Falling crime rates also correlate with increased access to abortion, and the ageing population. Gloomy though its implications might be, we are (even in this country) a bit safer than before, due to the underclass producing fewer children, and there being fewer 16-24 year olds in general.
Also interesting how crime rocketed up during a time of affluence. People don't commit crimes because they are poor (as anyone who lived through the great depression could have told us). They commit crimes because they are bad people.
Unfortunately, Ken needs to save money, as well as being an old softie. Insufficient money for prisons. I bet a cost-benefit analysis of flogging would be a real eye-opener...

You may be right, 'W', but I saw or heard somewhere recently that the birth rate was shooting up again - immigrants, perhaps. Also there was a statistic floating around about how many thousands of extra school places are going to be needed fairly shortly. Sorry, I can't quote exactitudes on this.

Yes, this

is from the Guardian, so they will be downplaying any link between immigration and birth rate, and more especially criminality!

But expect more trouble in 16 years' time, when the little beggars will be big enough to climb over your windowsill or chuck bottles around your local bus stop.

In 16 years time I won't give a damn - it will all be down to you young chaps! Er, best of luck and all that . . .
