Ooooo, we have slipped as a nation (only no. 7)!

Must be the recent penchant for chardonnay swilling [8D]

Weird how the U.S. leads the world in burglaries and rapes by a wide margin, but overall for violent crime (including murder), the places you have to avoid are Colombia, South Africa, Jamaica and Venezuela. And Spain has the robberies. Weird.

Isn't Ireland part of the UK then? Well the Northern part at least.
We should at least get part of their quota!
This is because of the Potatos isn't it?

Yep! That Cromwell chappie's got a lot to answer for [:p]

BTW, the only reason the Dutch are below the US in the table is because they spend most of their time in "coffee shops"

Problem with that stat is that out of 55litres, I'd say 50 comes right back up [xx(]
