Massive Drop In Crime Imminent!

The BBC reports that credit card fraud is no longer routinely to be recorded by the police. That may well be acknowledging the reality of the situation, but it will lead to a big drop in the crime figures.
This reinforces my point that there are no truly reliable crime statistics, in the UK or anywhere else, and that anyone who tries to use the published figures to prove a point - any point - should be howled down and tossed into the nearest muddy pond.
But don't tell anyone it was my idea, will you?
