Police investigate a burglary at a supermarket in Birmingham, England, Nov. 11, 2018. Crime is rising in Britain, but Conservative-led austerity measures have led to cutbacks in police services. Police forces are shrinking, as are social services, and now officers are overwhelmed with problems that other agencies once handled. Brexit may lead the rise of the socialist Labour government.
