Official UK crime statistics show increase in fraud cases and computer misuse offences

Thursday 19 January 2017 9:59 am Official UK crime statistics show increase in fraud cases and computer misuse offences Caitlin Morrison whatsapp whatsapp Fraud was the most commonly experienced offence in England and Wales last year, according to new data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), with stats showing UK card fraud went up by almost 40 per cent.In its Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW), published today, the ONS revealed there were an estimated 6.2m incidents of crime in the year ending September 2016, which the ONS said was not significantly different from last year.First time However, this was the first CSEW that included a full year’s data on fraud and computer misuse offences (such as the 2015 TalkTalk data breach), and including these offences “yields a new headline estimate of 11.8m incidents of crime covered by the survey”, the ONS said – there were an estimated 3.6m fraud and 2m computer misuses offences in the 12 months ended September 2016.According to the ONS, trend data on frauds referred to the police showed an annual rise of three per cent, while “other industry data on financial fraud, the vast bulk of which is unreported to the police, showed there were 1.9m cases of frauds on UK-issued cards”, representing an increase of 39 per cent from the previous year. In August last year, research from software analytics firm Fico showed card fraud in the UK had increased 18 per cent year-on-year.The CSEW estimates showed no statistically significant change in levels of violence compared with the previous survey. The police recorded an annual rise of 22 per cent in violence against the person offences, but the ONS said the volume increases were “largely driven by changes in recording processes and the inclusion of additional harassment offences within the series”.Crime has changed“In its 35 year history the Crime Survey has charted changing trends in crimes experienced by the population. In the past burglary and theft of vehicles were the high volume crimes driving trends but their numbers have fallen substantially since then,” said John Flatley, who works on crime statistics and analysis at the ONS.”When the CSEW started, fraud was not considered a significant threat and the internet had yet to be invented. Today’s figures demonstrate how crime has changed, with fraud now the most commonly experienced offence. However, it should be emphasised that the new headline figures, including fraud and computer misuse, are not comparable with those from earlier years.” Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRelated ArticlesSHOCKING: 10 Factors Increasing Prostate Cancer RiskCoolest Home Gadgets You Need To SeeTop 10 Date Night In Movies & Films Of All Timeby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorOne-N-Done | 7-Minute Workout7 Minutes a Day To a Flat Stomach By Using This 1 Easy ExerciseOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutWarped SpeedCan You Name More State Capitals Than A 5th Grader?

Any hopes of closer UK-India ties, including a free trade agreement (FTA), rest on a huge shift in our government’s immigration policy.FTAs are not just about tariffs and duties, they are about movement of people too: entrepreneurs, skilled workers, and students. We must remove international students from net migration calculations and reinstate the two-year post-study work visa for international graduates of UK universities.

India still treasures London as its preferred gateway into Europe and international finance. Innovative bond markets at the London Stock Exchange are harnessing London’s leading financial position to boost investment in Indian infrastructure and manufacturing capabilities. The government is also incentivising UK businesses to invest in sustainable development in India, a market of 1.3bn citizens.Bilateral partners like India are vital for the UK after Brexit – particularly as President Trump shakes multilateral institutions – from the G7 to Nato to the UN – to their core.

Erdogan calls for Saudis to reveal who gave order to kill journalist Khashoggi

first_img Erdogan ramped up the global pressure on the Saudi government following the killing of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.But the Kremlin said Russia had no reason to doubt the Saudi’s assertions that the royal family were not involved.Riyadh has changed its story multiple times regarding the death of the US resident, who was a prominent critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.The Turkish president demanded answers on who was behind the killing, which saw a 15-strong hit man squad fly into Istanbul on the day of the murder.“Who gave this order? Who gave the order for 15 people to come to Turkey?” he said in a speech to members to his AK Party in Ankara on Friday. Friday 26 October 2018 1:48 pm whatsapp Share Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged Saudi Arabia to reveal who ordered the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and disclose the location of his body. Earlier this week the Saudi government said 18 people had been arrested and five senior officials sacked as part of the investigation.The kingdom’s public prosecutor has said the murder was premeditated.Erdogan he spoke to the Prince Mohammad, he said: “I also told the crown prince. I said, ‘You know how to make people talk. Whatever happened between these 18 people, this dodgy business is among them. If you are determined to lift suspicion, then the key point of our cooperation is these 18 people.'”Saudi officials initially denied any involvement but the kingdom has since admitted he was killed in a botched operation.

Theresa May tells Trump the UK can sign trade deals under her Brexit plan

Theresa May tells Trump the UK can sign trade deals under her Brexit plan

first_img Owen Bennett The intervention came as the Prime Minister was trying to sell her deal to business leaders at a Downing Street reception following another torrid Commons bashing from Tory MPs.Speaking on Tuesday, the Prime Minister sought to set out why Trump was wrong in his assessment of the Brexit agreement.She said: “If you look at the political declaration which sets out the future framework for our relationship with the European Union, it clearly identifies that we will have an independent trade policy and we will be able to do trade deals, to negotiate trade deals, with countries around the rest of the world.“And, as regards the United States, we’ve already been talking to them about the sort of agreement we could have in the future. We’ve got a working group set up which is working very well, has met several times – continuing to work with the US on this.”May’s comments came after her former defence secretary Sir Michael Fallon declared her deal “doomed”. Tuesday 27 November 2018 2:40 pm Speaking to The Sun, she said: “Exactly how it might be done, if he takes it up, would be a matter for the broadcasters to determine. What I think is important is that people are able to see the issues around this plan.”I am willing to stand up and explain why I think it is the best possible deal available for the UK.”The date of the debate would likely be Sunday December 9, two days before MPs will vote on the withdrawal deal. whatsapp Sir Michael, who voted Remain in 2016 and has kept a low-profile since resigning from the cabinet a year ago, spoke out against the plan in the Commons on Monday, and went even further with his criticism in an interview with the BBC on Tuesday morning.He said: “My fear is that this deal gives us the worst of all worlds.”No guarantee of smooth trade in the future and no ability to reduce the tariffs that we need to conclude trade deals with the rest of the world.”So, unless the House of Commons can be persuaded somehow that those are possible then I think, yes, the deal is doomed.”As part of May’s strategy to get the public to back her deal, she has challenged Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to a televised debate on Brexit. Theresa May has hit back at claims from Donald Trump her Brexit agreement prevents a new trade deal between the UK and US.Speaking in the garden of the White House on Monday, the US president cast doubt on the UK’s ability to have an independent trade policy after Brexit under the terms of May’s deal. whatsapp More From Our Partners 980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com Theresa May tells Trump the UK can sign trade deals under her Brexit plan Share Tags: BBC Brexit Donald Trump Jeremy Corbyn People Theresa Maylast_img read more

Guy Verhofstadt compares Farage to Blackadder character in European Parliament

Guy Verhofstadt compares Farage to Blackadder character in European Parliament

first_imgWednesday 27 March 2019 10:29 am Share The European Parliament’s outspoken Brexit co-ordinator Guy Verhofstadt has taken a swipe at the self-styled “Bad Boy of Brexit” Nigel Farage, comparing him to field marshal Douglas Haig from the final episode of sitcom Blackadder.Verhofstadt said he was “surprised” to see the former leader of Ukip on European Parliament duty in Strasbourg, rather than on a pro-Brexit protest march yesterday. Tags: Brexit Nigel Farage People whatsapp Guy Verhofstadt compares Farage to Blackadder character in European Parliament Alex Daniel center_img whatsapp Farage hit back by invoking the real-life field marshal Haig, who he said “saved the Belgian town of Ypres from German domination” during the First World War.“Far from mocking Haig in Belgium, he should be a great hero to you,” he added.The real-life Douglas Haig has gained the nickname “The Butcher of the Somme” among historians in the intervening years, for sending thousands of troops into the enemy line of fire at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.On the first day of the Battle of the Somme in July 1916, 19,240 Brits died.MPs will tonight take a series of indicative votes on proposals which they hope could replace Theresa May’s Brexit deal.Plans were submitted last night, which Speaker John Bercow will pick to be debated this evening. Former Belgian Prime Minister Verhofstadt said that like Haig in Blackadder, Farage was “sitting safely in his office, while his people are walking in the cold and the rain”.“I thought you were marching 200 miles for the leave campaign? How many did you do? Two miles!”https://twitter.com/guyverhofstadt/status/1110836447626645504Speaking in Strasbourg yesterday, he added: “Let me recall the words of Sir Winston Churchill. ‘Success,’ he said. ‘Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.'”He could be talking about House of Commons and Prime Minister May today. This afternoon the house will have, if of course the Speaker allows – no less than 16 options for Brexit on the table. So there is certainly no loss of enthusiasm.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likebonvoyaged.comThese Celebs Are Complete Jerks In Real Life.bonvoyaged.comBleacherBreaker4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.
