If you want to know what happens to criminals - look at the graph above. And it's the sudden sharp upward line during the 1990s that explains one of the major challenges for the current government - and whoever walks into the Ministry of Justice after the general election.
You don't think it might just possibly be a case of New Labour's thousands of new laws that we can now break without knowing they exist that might have something to do with it? Or its policy of persecuting with such extraordinary vigour "crimes" against the fascist state while ignoring crimes against the person?
Or does that not fit into left-wing narrative, you utter cunts?
Update: a couple of points I should have made:
- The population of the UK has only gone up by around 50% since 1940, so crime has gone up a lot more than population growth.
- I have very little doubt that at least some of the crime escalation that has taken place under New Labour has something to do with the reckless immigration that they have encouraged.
