6th place & more importantly ahead of any large size country is pretty dreadful. The smaller the country the less valid the statistical sample which could, at least in part, explain why New Zealand, Finland & Denmark, not normally thought of as hotbeds of vice, are ahead of the UK. Even the US, which we are used to looking down on over their enthusiasm for shooting each other is 2 places better than Britain. Now I will perfectly happily accept that this is reported crime which the local police have decided to record. I do not believe that Georgia (56) or Moldova (48) have 30 times less crime than here - I suspect that it is merely that most people don't involve the authorities. Nonetheless countries like Japan (34) & Hong Kong (43) should be closely comparable to us.

I intend to do a bit more research on trends here & will repost when I have some conclusions.

Hi Neil,

You've been rather quiet lately. Did you get my last e-mails? It seems like you get them only sporadically.

On another far more important issue, how about putting in an item post and a prominent link with reference to my devastating new weblog site showing the documented photographic evidence of Oric's ant-Serbian Genocide in Srebrenica.

The fact that not a single Western media outlet has published these photographs in the last 14 years speaks volumes about the innate corruption of the Western "civilized world" and its "commitment to the furtherance of humanitarian liberal multi-cultural democratic
values"

Here is the URL for my new weblog site called "The Real Srebrenica Genocide":

http://real-srebrenica-genocide.blogspot.com

Have a look at it when you aren't busy.Plenty of new photographs and documentation is now there not previously seen on my other blog or any other site elsewhere on the net in one place.

Cheers,

Pete.
