Will it be safe to own a house in Britain after 2014?

Last year according to official statistics there were about 745,000 burglaries in England and Wales. With 23.4 million households, that means each home is likely to be broken into about once every 31 years. So I suppose that’s not too bad – only getting your home looted once every 30 years or so. However, the real level of burglaries is probably about twice that reported as many people no longer bother telling the useless, politically-correct police if their home has been ransacked as they know the police will do nothing. So that makes the likelihood of your home being robbed about once every 15 years.

Once the deeply criminal Bulgarians and Romanians start flooding in en masse after 1 January 2014, we can expect the number of burglaries to increase by 2 to 3 times. That will reduce the odds of your home being broken into to about once every five years.

But there is a further problem. Most homegrown burglars tend to prefer robbing empty properties as there is less chance of them being disturbed or caught. However our Romanian and Bulgarian friends have a quite different modus operandi. They prefer to rob homes when there is someone in. That way they can beat and torture the homeowner to get details of bank accounts, pin numbers and also to find any hidden cash or jewelry.

I would very much like to buy a house backing onto some woods so it’s easy to take the dog for a walk. However, the coming explosion in violent burglaries after 2014 has made me hesitant about buying. You may think 745,000 burglaries a year – that’s over 2,040 every single day – is quite frightening. But after the Romanians and Bulgarians arrive, this number is going to explode. As Bachman Turner Overdrive warned us “b-b-b-baby you ain’t seen nothing yet. Here’s something you’ll never forget”.
