I couldn't of summed it up better myself TTBN, everything you've stated herein is absolutely spot on. That's clearly the problem - what then can be done about it? Forget the politicians, all they are capable of doing, is shoveling societies human detritus, nothing else.

What I find surprising is that in the UK authorities are implying that the corrosive fluid attacks in the UK may be gang related,

"In the UK, the majority of victims are men, and many of these attacks are related to gang violence"

Which would go against the world experience of it as most usually a gender crime against women. Although in the UK women would be under-reporting too through cultural reasons including fear and shame. That and it is not known what 'majority' expresses in the UK apart from 'more than'.

Perhaps there are other numbers available, this is from Wikipedia,

<Epidemiology
According to researchers and activists, countries typically associated with acid assault include Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, China, United Kingdom, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Ethiopia. However, acid attacks have been reported in countries around the world.. But South Asian countries maintain the highest incidence of acid attacks.

Police in the United Kingdom have noted that many victims are afraid to come forward to report attacks, meaning the true scale of the problem may be unknown.

Gender
An accurate estimate of the gender ratio of victims and perpetrators is difficult to establish because many acid attacks are not reported or recorded by authorities. According to a 2010 study in The Lancet, there are "no reliable statistics" on the prevalence of acid attacks in Pakistan.

.. However, according to the London-based charity Acid Survivors Trust International 60 percent of acid attacks are on women, and acid assaults are grossly under-estimated. In some regions, assaults perpetrated on female victims by males are often driven by the mentality "If I can't have you, no one shall.">

ttbn & o sung wu,

Are we missing something here?

Is it possible to rule out the importation of toxic cultural traditions into the UK? Either way, as a gender crime (always more likely) and as a tool of criminals, it does seem to have been of very longstanding persistence in cultures with a 'history' where women are concerned.

It's taken the cultural Marxists 50 years to drag society down to what it is now. The same cultural Marxists are still in charge, so there is little chance of change any time soon.

In Pakistan and in other moslem countries it seems to be an honor crime.
It is done because the woman refuses a marriage proposal from another
family, or has a boyfriend. If a wife leaves her husband that is another cause.
I have not seen any suggestion that in Britain it is moslem related except perhaps for Pakistanis.

It would have to be one of the worse possible crimes up there with murder.

The press should stop referring to them as 'honour' killings etc. There's nothing honourable about it - it's murder justified by the childish, possessive insecurities of men. As for acid attacks - i find it difficult to think of a more cruel act to perpetrate on another person. Terrible.
