Excellent post, as always.



But then again, that's just MY opinion, for what it's worth.

Their is nothing more American than a fat guy in a basketball jersey cursing at a cameraman, America invented that.

Dearborn is basically like every American suburb you'll ever go to, only more Arabs, half of those being Christian Arabs." But I thought the Christian Arabs hated the Muslim ones!", then why do they live together...

London a city of around 9 million, with 3 million daily commutters and 20 million foreign visitors had 132 homicides last year.

Compare this to US Cities, such as Baltimore with a population of 600,000 which had 342 murders, whilst Chicago a city of 2.7 million had 555 homicides last year, and the pattern is repeated in numerous other US Cities. If you add Chicago and Baltimores homicide rate together you have more murders in those two ncities than the entire UK and even if you add the 77 homicides in Ireland and include the entire British Isles with a population of over 70 million, it still has less murders tha Chicago and Baltimore wth a collective population of around 3.3 million. There are also plenty of other US Cities that are extremely violent.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offer some interesting figures and an interactive state by state map of homicides in the US.

FastStats - Homicide - CDC

Stats of the States - Homicide Mortality - CDC

As for history, I thinki you will find nations have been fighting for thousands of years, and it's not unique to any one country.
You should compare, the MSA of Chicago and MSA of Baltimore to London. London city encompasses 80-90%+ of Londoners. London would still win hands down in a murder rate competition, but comparing Chicago city limits is akin to comparing the inner boroughs of London, so Walthamstow and Hackney but not Romford(which would lead to a higher murder rate by a magnitude of any where from 30-100%). increase).

The gigures used where official Chicago police numbers and there were 561 homicides between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018.

The Chicago Police Department cover the population mentioned and are responsble for the homicide figure.

he Chicago Police Department (CPD) is the law enforcement agency of the U.S. city of Chicago, Illinois, under the jurisdiction of the City Council. It is the second-largest municipal police department in the United States, behind the New York City Police Department. It has approximately 13,500 officers and over 1,925 other employees and is responsible fir a population of over 2.7 million residence.

I also posted links to the CDC, which showed state homicide figures, as well as quoting city homicide figures.

That does not mean they don't already know the outcome.
Ask Teresa May.

They probably have a pretty good idea of how it has gone but they won't know the exact result.

Tommy Robinson wasn't elected, however Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party did well with a large leave vote.

The staunch remainers seem to have voted Liberal Democrat, a Pro-EU party and they also won quite a few seats.

Overalll the populist parties did well, and the EU Parliament will see a good bit of change when it next sits.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, better known by his stage name of Tommy Robinson gained 2.24% of the vote in the Northwest England region overall.

He did a bit better in Knowsley Borough where the video in the original post was shot, he got 3.2% there.

2.2% of the vote and finishing 8th of 11 candidates. That is "taking the country by storm"? That is is an all wet loss.
