From my predictions for 2012:
there will be a vast surge in UK crimes against property (often inevitably involving violence), including some really nasty burglaries on folk keeping too much under the mattress
This is the kind of thing I meant. A lot of people keep dosh under the mattress: well who trusts banks, and how much interest do you get, and what if we wake up to find the ATMs dead and credit-cards not accepted ?
And then there's the precioussss ... which very many Asians keep stashed at home in large quantity.
And other people know this. Only the first of the many such stories we are going to read in the coming months, I fear.
Yes, it's going to get very nasty.
