    Are you just plucking that out of air?

    If you look at a graph of fear of crime vs. recorded crime over the last ten years, the fear has been steadily increasing whilst recorded crime has been steadily lessening. What does that tell us? It's very interesting to think about that.

    The research found a huge majority of the public do not back the community sentences which Kenneth Clarke, the Justice Secretary, wants to see used instead of short prison sentences.
    It seems they forgot to ask the question:-

    "Do you want taxes to go up to pay for more prisons?"

    I mean't a survey of people not a data analysis.

    try finding a survey of people in the last century where they say crime has fallen in the previous decade, bet you can't.

    What's the point of a survey if you don't analyse the data??!

    They are actuals though, not asking people.

    This survey isn't about asking people and I haven't been referring to actuals.
