    Default London Tube violent crime rises by 43% in three years

    Cause the London population has grown 43% in the last years innit? BBC with their fake news!!

    The commute to work is like playing Russian roulette these days.


    Violent crime on London's Tube network has increased by more than 43% in the last three years, figures have shown.British Transport Police data showed there were 1,980 reported incidents between November 2015 and October 2016, compared with 2,838 between November 2017 and September last year.
    King's Cross St Pancras had the highest number of recorded offences.
    British Transport Police (BTP) said the chance of being a victims of crime on Tube was "relatively low".
    The figures, which were released following a request from the Greater London Authority Conservatives, go up to September last year because data for October was not available.


    King's Cross St Pancras station, one of the busiest stations on the network with several lines passing through it, was found to have the highest amount of crime with 1,339 incidents over the three-year period.
    Oxford Circus, Stratford, Victoria and Green Park were the stations with the next highest number of recorded offences.
    BTP Assistant Chief Constable Robin Smith said: "London has one of the busiest transport networks in the world and the chances of being a victim of crime remains incredibly low, with less than 10 crimes recorded for every million passenger journeys made.
    "In the last year crime involving a weapon has increased, however it is important to bear in mind that these figures also include the many knives seized in our targeted, intelligence-led operations against knife crime, for instance Operation Engulf which has been running successfully for a year now."
    There is a 3,000-strong group of BTP and Met Police officers working across London's transport network.
    A spokesman for the mayor of London Sadiq Khan said the Met Police needed more money and he has called for the government to reverse cuts made to the force's budget.
    Conservative London Assembly Member Susan Hall called on the mayor to cut the "millions he is spending on City Hall waste" in order to provide "more officers on London's streets".
    "These statistics should spur the mayor into dropping his complacent attitude towards surging crime rates and finally take control of the situation," she said.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Any chance we could get a view of the demographic of the crims?

    A combination of birthrate, immigration and lax law enforcement. Ironically at the same time vast resources have been poured into inner-city schools which have caused a dramatic increase in BME Oxbridge intake.

    I'd start by replacing the Mayor and the Met Commissioner.

    An angry Jock with a slight German accent on his way to the Thistle Hotel Heathrow was apparently responsible for most of the 43% rise...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    He's got to make ends meet somehow, to compensate for his crypto losses and inability to complete an expense claim.

    Cut him some slack, the expense claim was in old money (or Sterling as Scoots would call it)...
