There's never been such crime and disorder clearly observable on the streets every day, as before now.
Yet apparently, through the use of statistics, the government is able to claim it's coming down.
Well, I know how to totally end crime on a nationwide basis for one day, through the use of statistics.
Right, what you do is give every single policeman in the country the day off.
Subsequently, on the day in question there would be absolutely no crime.
There you go, job done.
How so you say; how would that result in no crimes?
Burglars and robbers would still be out there committing crime surely?
Well, it's simple.
Because there would be no one on duty to detect or record crime, that would mean there were no crimes.
At least, that's what you can say with statistics. (See Statistics, under 'Articles' at top of home page.)
It's simple when you know how to manipulate statistics, that's why they use them.
