They have been written in English, Lithuanian and Polish - because analysis showed offenders were most likely to speak those languages, the force says.

People named Hudsonchicks seem to be more prone to write pathological posts. The question is; 'is this done out of ignorance or some strong emotional hang-up?

or some strong emotional hang-up?

Isn't it obvious that he was dumped by a Polish girl?

Or just rejected. Probably by more than one girl... maybe something to do with all the Lech he's been drinking:D:D:D
Wisbech is a tiny little town of 20,200 people in Cambridgeshire. If one Pole and one Lithuanian were arrested for shoplifting it would probably made the Wisbech Standard headlines for the next month.

If someone farted in that town it would probably make a headline...
Let's see their crime figures then...

LOL, pwnage! :)

Sometimes I wonder if this hudsonhicks guy can even read his own language!

Then again, his "own language" probably also means Hindi or Punjabi :)

I think he's Welsh. He struggles with English. Speaking of which, don't they have similar signs in Wales written in both English and Welsh?

Surely by his own logic that makes Welsh people more prone to thievery... no shock there...

No no no. You have to be kidding. How many steel plated doors do you see on houses in the UK compared to Poland. Don't forget we have a lot of your village idiots.

well it depends on the area - in Sports World at Piccadilly Circus the 'shoplifting is a crime' signs are in Spanish, Italian and French.

After profiling his posts I would say he is living in an area highly populated by Polish people, I will guess Portsmouth, he is is aged 25-27and has been dumped by a Polish girl in the last 3-6 months.

I would also add he is from a dysfunctional family and has a high probability of turning his sexuality preference to other before the end of 2013.

Any comments to add ?

There is 122 000 Poles in London. Almost 1/4 of total.

Only 122, 000?? You don't really believe that figure do you?

The French consulate in London estimates between 300,000 and 400,000 French citizens live in the British capital

The French don't seem to have a problem with crime do they?

900,000 Irish people live in the capital (12% of city's population

Why?

You can safely ignore that statement: it's just our resident India mouthing off yet again.

ROFL! That's a gem even by your standards!

Still taking Wikipedia as gospel truth then? LOL.

"Official" & wikipedia estimates of Polish in the UK have been around 500k for about 10 years now.

Most of us know the real number lies closer to 2MILLION. There's no way to really know.

It seems they have: 567 crimes in London... one can wonder what kind of crimes they commit. Another shock is that the Austrians (424 crimes) are on that list too! Citizens of those countries are on average far richer than Poles, so that makes it even more weird!

You can bet your life most of those are "French" Algerians.

And that doesn't make them fully French, right? Just like Indians and Pakistanians are not real Britons, is that what you mean?

What about Austrians then?

We have a lot of Polish scrap metal merchants in the UK..
The most despicable thefts such as stealing from war memorials has sky rocketed in recent years.

Just like Poppy appeal collection appeal theft has also sky rocketed. (Romanian Gypsies do this).

If You insist on Pole bashing, where is your evidence to support your nasty insinuations?
