Britain Doesn't Deserve This

According to the generally rather far-left London newspaper, the Independent:

England and Wales now top the Western world's crime league, according to United Nations research. The UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute reveals that people in England and Wales experience more crime per head than people in the 17 other developed countries analysed in the survey... including the US, Japan, France and Spain.England and Wales also have the worst record for "very serious" offences, recording 18 such crimes for every 100 inhabitants, followed by Australia with 16. And "contact crime", defined as robbery, sexual assault and assault with force, was second highest in England and Wales – 3.6 per cent of those surveyed. This compares with 1.9 per cent in the US.
