According to the latest crime statistics, London is now more dangerous than the Big Apple. The thing is, London is one of the most multicultural cities in the world and it’s currently “ruled” by a Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan respectively. That’s not a coincidence by any means, as white Britons are no longer a majority in UK’s capital since 2012. More than one in three Londoners were born outside the UK and less than 45 of London’s current population is now white of Scottish, English or Welsh heritage.
Hence, it may not be such a coincidence after all that the oh-so-progressive and cosmopolitan London is now more crime ridden and henceforth more dangerous than New York City, with robberies, rapes and all sort of violent offences (acid attacks, terrorism etc.) being far higher than Britons would have imagined possible just 20 years ago.
According to the latest crime stats revealed earlier this week, crime across the United Kingdom was up 13%, with London seeing a huge surge in violent crime, thus contributing decisively to the respective figure. Violent crimes increased by 19%, with more than 1,2 million cases reported, sex offences rose by almost 20%, to 129,700 in the last year and knife crimes (guns are banned in the UK) saw a 26% increase to almost 37,000 cases. Terrorist attacks also rose by a whopping 60% and overall, more than 5 million crimes were reported in England and Wales in 2016.
Just out report: “United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror.” Not good, we must keep America safe!

President Trump’s tweet infuriated both liberal British newspapers and politicians alike, as pundits described (and obviously dismissed) his critics and comments for being divisive and ignorant. A former UK leftist leader actually called him a moron:
Spreading lies about your own country: sad. Spreading lies about others: sadder. What an absolute moron. https://t.co/0EACPcX9xR

All President Trump said was that the UK crime rate is soaring amid the spread of Islamic terrorism, which is patently true. It’s also true that, let me quote:
- 1,229 out of the 5,885 prisoners in high-security jails follow the Islamic faith
- The figure equates to 20% compared with 5% Muslim population in Britain
The rate of increase of Muslim inmates in British prisons is eight times faster than that of the overall prison population, and the numbers show a clear overrepresentation of Muslim convicts: Muslims, who make up roughly 5% of the British population as a whole, now make up 13% of the British prison population (compared to just 6% in 1997).
The growth in the number of Muslim inmates is fueling fears that British prisons are becoming hotbeds for Islamic radicalization.
Nowadays jails are run mostly by Muslims … It hurts as a Muslim to have someone disrespect my religion. If we deal with him one time, with violence, and show him what time it is, he will never disrespect our religion again … For Muslims, you’d say it’s good, but for non-Muslims, it’s very, very bad.” — Jay, five-time former inmate, quoted by the BBC
