this thread is about young people from the most deprived, crime ridden and yob infested parts of Britain.
The ones that joined the army.
It shows that these lads have a much, much, MUCH lower rate of crime than the population of, errr, Northern Ireland.

Murder is a terrible crime. Destruction of peoples property is also a terrible crime. A well maintained fence or treasured statue in a garden may mean as much as an expensive car to someone else. All cause misery when vandalised.

I may not know a lot about the subject here in question.
What I do know is the subject of the debate is a distressing reflection on our society wherever it occurs.

Please stop fighting with each other and set an example that we as responsible adults see our own faults first before we judge others.

I am 26 years old and just in from a wonderful night out with friends and we came home peacefully.

Thank you

There are indeed murders in every city every week in the UK. Last year there were over 850. I am realy surprised that they are all on a Friday night. But it must be true because a Henley shopkeeper said so in a newspaper. You learn something new every day...

A 17 years old youth was arrested today after a man in his 40s was kicked to death by a gang in Henley on Thames, a shopkeeper said that there was a CCTV trained on the spot were the murder took place, he also added that this sort of thing happens in every town on a Friday night, Henley is no different.

The man is talking rubbish, well according to some of our contributors on this Thread.

Let's try again then. Remember all the Northern Ireland threads in which many people from that region, including yourself Ard, said that people on mainland Britain could not comment because you had to live there to see what was realy happening? Can you not see parallels here? You are repeatedly quoting the press as if what they say is the truth. It isn't. It is only part of it. Would you be happy if I was to post all the articles I ould find about crime and violence in Northern Ireland? Believe me, for every article you have posted I have refrained from posting a similar one about Northern Ireland.

Yes, we all have our problems. No, it's no good turning a blind eye to it. But can you see not see what is happening here? You are suggesting the UK, or Britain as you so blatantly put in the title is a cesspool of violence and iniquity. No where has anyone suggested it is perfect. The truth is that it is somewhere in between. All societies have their problems. Some are worse than others. Some have different issues.

Remember the man-eating virus of a couple of years back? Remember last years bird-flu? Remember the English press having a field day with Irish 'terrorists'? It's what sells papers. The yobs have always been there, I wish that they would go away but they won't leave overnight and just quoting the press over and over does absolutely nothing to further your argument. Unless of course your argument is that the press know better than us? In which case I might as well just go away.

Before I do though I would suggest you take a poll amongst Mudcatters that have visited the UK in recent times. See how much violence and thuggery they have seen. Just check out whether they will be coming back. I won't start it myself but leave it to you to find out the truth for yourself.

Cheers

Adele Eastman the fiancee of murdered lawyer Tom ap Rhys Pryce, moved the nation when she described her sadness in a statement to the Judge who sentenced two young killers to jail.
Donnel Carty 19, sentenced to 21 years, is said to have smirked, and 18 year old Delano Brown, jailed for 17 years, rolled his eyes on apparent boredom as Adele`s words were read to the Old Bailey by a barrister.

Anew report suggests street robbers often catty out their vicious crimes to boost their street cred or motivated by a sheer desire to fight.

The study, includes interviews with 120 offenders- a third of whom have been arrested more than 50 times- and found street culture can be a far more important factor in such crimes that financial gain.

The reports authors -one of whom is Professor Trevor Bennett director of the University of Glamorgan`s centre for criminology- discovered that one element in the excitement felt by the violent offenders comes from overpowering the victim and obtaining dominance.

"It`s for the fun, `cos the point of street robbery is to get them to fight back, innit", said one criminal.

Will future generations wonder why our current climate tolerated such a state of affairs? and what reasons will they offer for such acceptance.

Have we become beaten into submission by a political atmosphere which suggests any sort of hard line is a form embarrassingly untrendy discipline which smacks too much of right-wing conservatism?.

How much longer can society ignore what is happening on the streets and those inclined to adopt a "liberal" stance write off as "hysterical" anyone who suggests, we are heading for a more serious breakdown of law and order?

An "I`m all right Jack" attitude fails us all- not least because the tragic death of Tom ap Rhys Pryce has shown now anyone can have, as the Old Bailey judge said "the grave misfortune to be in the wrong place at the wrong time".

The above from Catherine Jones, Western Mail, on the National Website of Wales.

She is not my sister.

Ard, I don't know how else to say it. I have supported your views almost from the start. See my post at 09 Nov 06 - 05:19 AM to confirm what I suspect you already know. It was only when I found out that there was no league table and that Britain would not have been top anyway that I disputed your thread title. Even then I said the two issues were not related. One was undeniable, there is a problem with yobs in the UK. The other, your thread title, is a complete falsehood.

I intensely dislike sensationalist headlines, including this thread title, but I accept your right to use them. Hopefuly you accept everyones elses right to treat them with the pinch of salt they deserve. I and a number of other people know that there is a problem. We also know that the streets of Britain are not as bad as you or the press paint them. Can you not just take that chip of your shoulder and accept that not everything British is bad?

And, no, I was not having a drink in The Uplands. I guess your knowledge of UK towns is not as good as you tell us if you think that someone from Salford would go to Birmingham for a quiet pint. Harmondsworth was also noteable for it's riots in 2005 where gang warfare between Asian and Afro-Carribean youths broke out. I guess that's the fault of us Bastard Brits as well is it?

Anecdotelay the only time I have been intimidated in pub by football yobs was when I was in Listowel and the local branch of the Chelsea supporters club came in drowning their sorrows after having lost to Manchester United. It was the only time I have ever had to say I live in Bolton. Not an admission anyone would make without good reason...

I see I am still right about you not being able to address a point that makes some of your claims look false though. Is that why you just keep quoting the press? Do you not think that wild claims detract from our central proposition that there is a problem with yobs? Just think about it.

Cheers

So in what way am I hard to get through to, Ard? I have already agreed that there is a problem with yobs and that something needs to be done about it. All I have pointed out is that it is not as endemic as the press make out. It has already been pointed out that the title you gave the thread is incorrect and misleading but I have also said that that does not matter either. We still need to address the issue of yobs.

Maybe I need to agree more? OK, I'll give it a try.

Us English are a set of scum-sucking, murdering thieves who eat our own children. Every street corner has a mugger on it, unless of course it is taken up with a slave trader. I get raped three times a day by the local convent school girls and I cannot get out of my front gate due to the seven foot drifts of vomit and blood.

All other nations are far better. Their toilets smell of christmas pudding and cinnamon. All the people will give their last penny to you and should you happen to get injured on the incredably safe streets the government will sweep you up in swathes of cotton wool while sweet sixteen year old virgins will kiss the injury better. There is no such thing as punishment beatings, no bombs, no removing of knee-caps with black and decker drills and no drug dealing.

There, I have got it of my chest now and feel so much better for it. Now, just maybe, Ard will accept that I have agreed with him and stop making untrue remarks with no retraction? What is you do for a living btw, Ard? Journalist by any chance? Polititian? I have noticed that whenever a question is asked or a point is raised that will show you may have been a little economical with the truth you do tend to ignore it or change the subject. Any reason for that?

For what it is worth I am an architypical Englisman. My four grandparents were all different nationalities. One of my great-grandparents was even from the green Isle where all is wine and roses.

I spent many a Saturday at St James Park, in those days holligans were unheard off, Jackie Milburn, Len White, Frank Brennan, all stars when the Magpies had a team, Roker Park as well Shack and all the rest of the bank of England team, and there was never a word, both sets of supporters mixed and exchanged the banter, imagine that now, there would be murder.
Todays Irish News has a photo of the victorious Derry City team winner of the League of Ireland Cup, and the heading, "Is Derry City the best Soccer Team in Ireland,probably," it was the Carlsberg Cup, geddit.

OK, the 'word' is popular in Ireland and the US. But mention football to an Irishman and I'm pretty sure what game he will be thinking of.

So your not coming to watch the toon then?

Google in RTE Shields Folk and you will see the word SOCCER on their sports page, this may enlighten you, I tell you we have used the term for years.
If their is any Irish around your area, just ask.

What do we need a referee for? meet up before the game, few beers, off to the match, shout at the referee a bit (is that where you come in divis?) stand up if you hate sunderland (play along ard), of to the pub to conglatulate comiserate, mebys of to a folkie pub (might have to walk through Byker though but)

Thanks Mick, now in an act of Mudcat reconciliation I would like to invite ard mhacha to attend a game of association football at St James Park next year. It may not be one of the bigger games or in the best seats but I'll buy the tickets!

Just call it football, Shields Folk. That is its proper name, and us colonials will figure it out.

I always thought that 'Soccer' was a word used by the upper classes in England to from Rugger, I didn't realise it was invented in Ireland.
I don't like using the word because the most popular team sport in the world is known by the world as 'football' and although soccer is an english word it sounds american to me!

By the way when was the last time you went to an English league footy game.
I can't say I have seen any hooliganism for a long long time.
