Plus Ca Change

I have been writing the blog for over six years now, and I had a glance at a few old posts the other day. What was notable is that despite the frantic pace of legislation in the Blair/Brown years, not too much has changed.
Crime figures have just been published and are in today's papers. As usual there is discussion of the ongoing discrepancy between the official police figures and the British Crime Survey, which is commonly accepted as being more indicative of the situation on the ground, based as it is on interviews rather than reported figures that might be skewed for one reason or another.

I wrote this and this six years ago. Most of what I said then still applies today.
