There has been a list published giving the top ten places where burglary is only one part of the blight that affects the persons perceived as statistical figures in to-days modern society. At one time they used to be known by their other collective term of ‘victims.’
I suspect that those 65% might be the Police officers who deal with this alleged recorded fall in the crime figures. Perhaps the reduction in officers means that less are doing more of the crime recording resulting in the appearance that there is really more crime but the reality there is a lot less ? A great bit of productivity evidence for the next appraisal.
You can, of course, totally trust these ‘statistics’ from a Government who claim that the underlying rate of inflation is steady at below their target inflation rate.
Also, anyone who thinks that anything likely to increase above the target rate is simply taken out of the equation and not considered when the numbers are crunched is totally wrong. These items were already out of the frame.
So now you understand that this figure does not include the cost of your mortgage, fuel bill increases, bread, milk, butter, cheese, local rates, fuel costs for your transportation, be it car bus, train etc and a whole load of other things that have gone up enormously but, as if by magic, have had no effect on the underlying inflation rate. In fact anything that is likely to go up or increase about the target rate is not included. What a novel and simply brilliant idea.
Once upon a time, in a far off land where everything was clouded in a cloak of invisible responsibility, where the spin of words was the aim to prove an effective source of governance, the same statistics were given out by the people who said that all was well…………….and they all lived happy ever after because they could see that all was well, under the cloak.
