Listening to characters like Piers Morgan and Diana Feinstein, you would think that the United States is one big shoot-em-up western, while the UK is a prim and proper, idyllic place without any hint of violence… Guess what?

Here are the REAL figures, compiled from official reports by the European Commission and United Nations:

- The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.
- It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
- The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.
- It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offences than recorded in Germany and France.
Britain IS the most violent country in the EU! The report is based on the number of crimes per 100,000 residents.
In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.
The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.
