According to research done by Admiral Insurance when it come to house break ins and car thefts and theft from cars, Belfast, is the safest large urban area in The UK -

Belfast was probably the last large urban area in Europe not to have a large drug addiction issue and this was thanks to the unique licensing activities of the paras back in the day, also interestingly the brothel/massage parlour business was apparentlycontrolled jointly by the paras from both sides, no doubt The Stickies were big into that aspect!:rolleyes:

Nowadays, there are even 300 registered smack addicts in Galway!:mad:

Maybe we are getting back to the days pre `troubles` when NI had one of the lowest crime rates in Europe. What the thousands of RUC did to justify their time beats me.

How does low car crime translate into "safety"?

Not too surprised on this one. Theft is a symptom of prosperity. You can only steal if someone had the wealth to buy something in the first place.

This survey points up how impoverished Belfast has become under the present political administration of DUP/SF.
In the good old days lads had no problem cleaning out the Northern Bank. When it came to white collar crime, they set up the RHI scheme and of course Gerry's brother moved faster than Rory McIlroy could send his golf ball.

No longer so. Arlene and the blonde one (what's her name again?) will come under more pressure to get a deal together, any deal is better than no deal!

Less chance of being killed by someone in a stolen car, carjacked etc. However there has been and remains a huge problem with car crime in Belfast, particularly in the Divis Area.

what survey? This is a report from Admiralty Insurance. Projection of preconceived ideas much?

The troubles are well and truly over then.
If the people of NI and the people of the ROI permit the British govt and the EU to re-erect post Brexit, the entirely artificial border between the 26 and 6 counties then the probability of the " The Troubles" returning is very very high.

Belfast city centre may be safe but it's still spooky to walk through after nightfall, the streets almost deserted. I realise that it's all down to the legacy of the bad old days, but it's still very, very weird.

I found the city centre quite lively at weekends but like a morgue from Monday to Wednesday. Last visit was last year.

Depends which part of the city centre you're in. Like almost all cities.
