UK: 1/3 of London arrests are foreign nationals

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

New police data reveals that one third of those arrested in London are foreign nationals, as are one fifth of those arrested across the whole country.

What makes it hard for us to show a pattern or theme here, however, is the fact that up until now, the police haven’t recorded the nationality of those committing the crime. How does that make any sense?

If this data was available — and it looks like it will be soon — then we’d be able to make informed decisions.

26% of the England/Wales prison population are from a minority ethnic group.
12.8% of the UK population are from black, Asian, or minority ethnic groups.
Polish nationals are the most common non-British nationality resident in the UK: in 2016 there were 1 million Polish nationals resident in the UK.
Of the ordinarily resident UK population, 1 in 7 (14%) were born abroad. 1 in 11 (9%) had non-British nationality.
In 2016 there were 3.6 million people resident in the UK who were born abroad and held British nationality.
In a statistically very tiny instance, where you were born does not relate to your ethnicity. This was far more common during the days of the British Empire, when a sizable number of white British children were born abroad in colonial territories.
I make this observation: giving someone of non-British ethnicity a British passport does not make him a “Briton”: it makes him a British citizen. Not all British citizens are Britons, no matter what the MSM likes to report.
About a month ago I wrote a Blog entry “Are we still Heroes?”, in which I sought to understand why I had ceased to love Britain. Not everyone (either from the left or the right) will enjoy reading it. Googling rabbiedeoir+blog will quickly find my Blog.

The lists will still be skewed by the number of people who have purchased the required number of packets of corn flakes and obtained passports for themselves and their uncounted “dependents”.

Amy Lynn how the hell would you know? The police did not record that data until now. IDIOT!

If this is not news to you, why are you here soaking it up?
And why do you even spend your time commenting about something that isn’t news?

Thanks Karan Singh, I forgot that if someone becomes a British citizen, and the next week he murders someone, it is a Brit that did the crime, not a Foreigner.

This was the same in 2012 under Conservative mayor, Boris Johnson. How is this news?

Change Foreigners to Religion and all would be clear.

Jack, why wait a year for new statistics on Foreign National crime, when all you need to do is get the prison stats on what countries make up the majority of prisoners?
Both numbers should be close, 70% of Foreign Nationals that commit crimes will likely come from Islamic Countries, the same as the prison numbers.
