Topic: Eastern Europeans and Crime on Public Transport

I don't really have any confidence in any of your assertions about policing in the capital. If they were ever accurate they seems now to be woefully out of date.

You seem unable to make the very simple distinction between the undisputed fact that some eastern Europeans are involved in theft and your view that we should assume that if a theft takes place that it is likely to have been committed by an eastern European and that they are responsible for the dominant proportion of theft on our public transport system.

You aren't likely to ever change your opinion when presented with facts but for the benefit of others who use them to form opinions the level of theft on the tube network has fallen dramatically over the last four years when at the same time there has been a significant increase in the number of eastern Europeans in the capital particularly from Bulgaria and Rumania.

It does have to be conceded that Rumanians dominate ATM fraud but, as I understand it, this is because banks previously used software engineers from this country before making them redundant and moving their work to India. The country therefore had a surplus of unemployed people with expertise in bank security hence their predominance in this kind of crime.

There is no problem with identifying a particular ethnic group with a particular type of crime when their is evidence to confirm. There is a problem with making an unsupported assertion about the proportion of crime committed by a particular group with no evidence to support it.
