Living in Britain is now more dangerous than the Balkans, report reveals | Mail Online

Quote:
Britain is now more dangerous than the Balkans, it was revealed yesterday.

You are more likely to be assaulted, robbed and burgled in Britain than in the region of southeast Europe once synonymous with war and gangsters, according to a report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Your car is at least ten times more likely to be stolen in Britain than in Albania, Croatia or the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Western Europe suffers from double the amount of burglary, over four times as much assault, and 15 times as much robbery as the Balkans, the report revealed.

Well, there's a lot of places that Britain has more crime than. The Sahara Desert, Devon Island, Antarctica. Oddly, people still seem to like to live in Britain, and not so much in any of those other places. Must be more here than what meets the eye. Must be something else going on...

You're also more likely to NOT find a good meal in Britain either.

There is not much thefts when there is nothing to steal.

The UK has excellent food. I do not get where you think it doesn't unless your idea of good food is chain restaurants.

You are most likely to be a vicitm of crime in the UK because the majority of it comes from 2 groups, those annoying chavs and immigrants.
