UK: Acid Attacks Now at ‘Epidemic Levels’, Says Burns Surgeon

A burns surgeon who treats many acid attack victims coming out of East London has suggested that the proliferation of such crimes is now at epidemic levels.

Dr Martin Niall, a burn surgeon at Mid-Essex Hospital, told National Public Radio (NPR) in the U.S. that acid attacks in Britain “are now at levels that one of my colleagues described as epidemic”.

He added: “Everyone, ourselves included, has been shocked by this emerging threat to public health.”

In terms of attacks per head of population, London is now the acid attack capital of the world, with a 74 per cent rise in assaults — from 261 to 454 — between 2015 and 2016.

Hundreds of attacks have already been logged for the first few months of 2017.
While perpetrators are not confined to any one community, between 2011 and 2016 attacks in London tended to be concentrated in areas which have experienced high levels of immigration.

Newham, Barking and Dagenham, and Tower Hamlets — all of which are minority White British — topped the list for total attacks in the period.

Mass migration of incompatible cultures, with high unemployment, mixed with a violent street culture (where being gangsta is the shit) has led to this. What we are seeing is a mismanagement of people.

Taking out this mass migration of low skilled (unemployable) people from the (economic) system would help fix the problem. The UK needs to stop immigration and have a policy of mass deportation and/or encouraged migration out of the country.

Priority needs to be given to those living in the UK before this last wave of immigration hit.
