With the Express, I wonder where to begin. Mostly, such is the stench, I can’t be bothered correcting them but, now and again, I think someone might believe their garbage.
So, ‘50 attacks‘ – Unison carefully do not tell us how many were physical assaults.
In 2018, Unison reported 18 720 physical assaults in England:
So, we can estimate around 1 900 physical assaults in Scotland?
Among 160 000 staff, 1 900 represents 1.2%?, 1 in 84 staff.
160 000 staff, each working around 230 shifts per year is 37 million days in which a physical assault could have taken place, so shifts in which a physical assault takes place, 0.005%, 1 in every 19 000 shifts.
Lawless Scotland? Half the overall crime of England and Wales. Homicide falling below that in England and Wales. Violent crime down on the 5-year average.
