Well, as I’ve intimated earlier, we both could probably spend all day “tweaking numbers” - who contributes how much to what statistic etc. - but that really isn’t my main point. Yep, there’s a deplorable culture of youth binge drinking and associated violence (and violence in general) in the UK these days, but don’t extend this to the rest of Europe (somehow this always happens here: something goes awry in one European country and suddenly all of Europe is lost?).
And there are many who take a stand against being “taken over by immigrants” in Europe - but sensationalist reporting seldom dwells on that fact, and, lets face it, there are many FReepers who just love to bash Europe (somehow it’s like calling your own mother a bitch, so go figure...).
Since you mention Australia - you may have missed reports about middle-eastern immigrant youths gang-raping Aussie chicks as a pastime, as well as mass gang fights etc. They have enough muzzie problems of their own and still let them in.
