    One in five people arrested in Britain are foreign, one every three minutes | Daily Mail Online

    One in five people arrested in Britain are foreign: Crime tourism spikes as police figures reveal an overseas suspect is seized every three minutes
    Some 172,732 of the 931,155 people arrested in 2016-17 were foreign nationals
    This was a sharp increase from 16 per cent the previous year, figures showed
    In London the percentage was up to one third of all arrested
    Criminals came to Britain after serving time in homelands, then committed more
    That represented a sharp increase from 16 per cent the previous year, according to internal figures collated by the ACRO Criminal Records Office from police forces around the country.

    In London, as many as a third of all suspects are from overseas and foreign nationals now comprise 11 per cent of the prison population in England and Wales.

    Last month, a Lithuanian gang was jailed for an audacious 'awayday' raid on a family jewellers in Cornwall.

    It wouldn't pander to the DM readership to have the headline read "Four out of five people arrested in Britain are British." Must have something about those damned foreigners to continue whipping up the hatred eh?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Nothing like a bit of trivial news to blow up out of proportion, get on the soap box and get outraged.



    A political commentator hit the nail on the head, when he said that the world in 20 years time will look more like that of Obama than Trump. That is the inevitable trend. Rightwing outrage won't change that.

    "At the 2011 census, London had a population of 8,173,941. Of this number, 44.9% were White British. 37% of the population were born outside the UK, including 24.5% born outside of Europe."

    One assumes the figure of foreign born Londoners is higher now.

    Conclusion - in London, foreigners are less likely to commit crime than British born?

    Doh! Poor old vetran (sic), thick as mince and not afraid to show it.
    Like most Brexiters, numbers, proportions and ratio calculations are beyond him.
    Hard Brexit now!

    hmm no

    Born abroad doesn't mean foreign as Boris will tell you. You can be sure those with British nationality are in the British figures.
