2019 Diary of increasing violence in the U.K.

  • What accounts for the the rise in violence in the U.K.?
  • People are noticeably angrier the reasons are compounded by many issues that currently impact our society. Including:
    • Frustration dealing with authority. Frustration at a complete lack of government support for those most in need demonstrates either ignorance or simply a complete lack of empathy. Whichever, the government is comprised of individuals paid for by the tax payer therefore expectations to witness a reduction in poverty are warranted. If government fails to do so it is in breach of its mandate and must call for a general election. Additionally, those responsible for creating policies that lack sufficient foresight to protect the quality of life found among the full range of tax payers should be publicly banned from holding any office within government.
    • Austerity that dragged on for much longer than initially suggested.
    • Their standard of living has either been static for several years or simply declined.
    • The fact that the United Nations was critical of the U.K. government for introducing an unnecessarily severe austerity policy that this government prefers to ignore.
    • The introduction of Food Banks since 2010. The only way for millions of families to survive.
  • Poverty breeds criminality history has proved that so often anyone would expect the political elite educated at Eton to be aware.
  • This page focuses on violent crimes occurring in the U.K. during 2019, many of which proved fatal. Over time an attempt to add further details to identify patterns that highlight potential reasons for this break down in law and order will be added.
    • However, even at this stage a lack of police resources cannot be ignored because the deterrent (fear of arrest) must be considered lower by offenders because low police numbers are published.

Currently listed are 54 incidents as at 17-9-2019. (Not all are knife crimes)
