David Ruffley - MP for Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and Needham Market

The burglary capital of Europe

Britain is the burglary capital of Europe. Levels of assault are also the highest in the EU while car thefts and sexual offences are not far behind. In Europeís overall crime league Britain comes second only to Ireland. These shocking figures show just how hollow Brown and Blairís words are when they say crime is falling.

The EU survey even showed a clear link between levels of violent crime and alcohol consumption. Yet ministers have the nerve to tell us that their 24 hour drinking laws have had no impact on crime levels. This report should be compulsory reading for the Government. Just glancing at it will show them the reality of the yob culture they have inflicted on modern Britain.

Germany, France, Italy and Spain all managed to have below average crime levels. All of these are countries comparable to Britain. Ten years of Government failure have left us more at risk from both property and violent crime than anywhere else in Europe. Blairís Britain Ė what a complete shambles.
