The biggest cocaine smugglers in Europe are the ‘Ndrangheta,

The biggest cocaine smugglers in Europe are the ‘Ndrangheta, a mafia from the “toe of Italy“, Calabria. They may not be as well known as their Sicilian counterparts but their drugs and extortion business is worth billions of euros. When cornered their bosses hole up in secret bunkers.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so relieved to see sunlight. Since dead of night I had been crawling through tunnels strewn with rat excrement, personal effects and the paraphernalia of the cocaine business.

The dust and damp were choking. How long had I been underground? Four hours? Five? Eight? Then at last, filthy, tired, and disorientated, I surfaced into a gorgeous mountain landscape, and a breeze bearing the perfume of wild oregano.

I felt as if I had just escaped a brush with insanity, with evil.

The tunnels were in the town of Plati, on Aspromonte, the “harsh mountain” that dominates the landscape at the very toe-tip of Italy’s boot.

Plati has been notorious for a century as a stronghold of the ‘Ndrangheta, the Calabrian mafia.

Some of these bosses are raking in more than 300 million Euro’s a year from Oranges scams – corrupt officials say that the Oranges have been delivered then the bosses get a payment from the EU about six months later. The money is invested in guns and drugs and large mansions in the mountain villages.

1 in 8 in British jails are Foreigners and we pay to build nice prisons back in their homelands.

British taxpayers are paying to make jails in Jamaica and Nigeria more comfortable in a desperate bid to persuade foreign criminals to serve their sentences at home.

Ministers have resorted to the tactic – designed to satisfy the human rights of inmates – after it emerged that the UK’s own prison system has turned into a ‘United Nations of crime’.

Research by the House of Commons library, seen by the Mail, reveals how our jails contain inmates from a staggering 156 countries – more than three out of every four member states of the UN.

By March this year, there were 11,127 behind bars, at an estimated cost to the UK public purse of more than £420million. This is up from 10,778 in 2011.

The group, which includes rapists, murderers and burglars, now makes up more than one in every eight convicts.

The right to a family life

The UK is too soft a country we allow foreign criminals into our country who often go on to commit serious crimes when in the UK. They marry somebody in our country and use the ruse “Right to a family life” to stop them being deported back to their home country’s. The law should be simple foreign criminals and their new wives should all be deported back to the foreign criminals country of origin.

The right to a family life is ignoring the victims family right to a family life – often somebody in their family has been killed etc.

Crime in the UK

Thirteen men were arrested in Oxford on Thursday after police uncovered a ring that allegedly preyed on young runaways. Seven of them were bailed.

Anjum Dogar, 30, Akhtar Dogar, 31, Kamar Jamil, 26, Zeshan Ahmed, 26, and Mohammed Karrar, 37, all of Oxford and Bassan Karrar, 32, of no fixed address, faced charges in High Wycombe magistrates court that included rape, conspiring to rape a child and arranging child prostitution.


Three men have been convicted at the Old Bailey over a shooting in a south London shop which left a five-year-old girl paralysed. Thusha Kamaleswaran was shot in the chest and Roshan Selvakumar, 35, was shot in the face at Stockwell Food and Wine shop in Brixton last March.

Nathaniel Grant, Kazeem Kolawole and Anthony McCalla were found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent. They were also convicted of attempting to murder rival Roshaun Bryan. The court heard the gunmen were trying to shoot him when Thusha and Mr Selvakumar got caught in the crossfire.


Foreign criminals facing deportation from Britain are starting ‘a network of children’ in order to stay in the country, according to the Home Office.


The thug who killed a pensioner trying to stand up for his community during last summer’s riots.

Just ten minutes after delivering a fatal punch to Richard Mannington Bowes, 16-year-old Darrell Desuze smashed several shop windows and strolled away with a bottle of wine in each hand.

Such was the force of the blow that the 68-year-old retired accountant, who was trying to quell a fire started by a rampaging mob near his home, never awoke and died three days later.

English riots and Foreigners in the UK

Foreign looters from 44 countries have been locked up over the riots which scarred the country in August. Robbers, vandals and thugs from as far afield as Afghanistan, Cuba, Ethiopia and Samoa joined in as shops were plundered and businesses set ablaze, causing millions of pounds worth of damage.The sheer number from different corners of the globe who took part in the mayhem is one of the strongest indicators yet that the riots had nothing to do with political protest or civil unrest, but was born of greed and opportunist criminality. Prison statistics revealed that 14 per cent – about one in seven – of those jailed for burglary, robbery, theft, criminal damage and disorder during the riots were born abroad. But the true number could be even higher as at least four per cent of those remanded in custody refused to tell police their nationality. Jamaicans represented the largest group of foreign inmates, followed by Somali and Polish offenders. The list also included those from Colombia, Iraq, Congo, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. One in four of those jailed for robbery were born abroad, as were one in ten convicted for violent disorder or other disorder offences such as possession of a knife or drugs. Nationally, police have made more than 4,000 arrests, with 2,952 suspects held in London alone. Yesterday Sir Andrew Green of the MigrationWatch pressure group called on the Government to kick out foreign rioters and looters. He said: ‘It’s absolutely unacceptable that any foreign citizen should take part in a riot in Britain. ‘It’s important that the courts should recommend deportation in every case which would qualify.’
