Skip to comments.Knife Crime is Out of Control in Sadiq Khan’s London.

London continues its downward spiral under London Mayor Saddiq Khans leadership. Or lack thereof.
According to figures from the London Metropolitan Police, 49 percent of knife crime is committed by teenagers. Even more revealing were numbers that indicated that three quarters of knife crime perpetrators were minorities.
This is part of a larger trend of failed government policies that are beginning to produce toxic social outcomes throughout the UK.
For a start, it doesnt help that the UK has an expansive welfare state that is not very conducive to immigrant assimilation. One neednt look further at the case of Sweden to see how welfare states incentivize socially destructive behavior among immigrant groups.
It also doesnt help that the UK doesnt guarantee gun rights like our Second Amendment. After mass shootings in Hungerford, England, and Dunblane, Scotland, the political class in London has heavily restricted the ownership and usage of firearms in the country.
London specifically experienced record high knife crime, increasing by 15 percent to a total of 14,987 blade offences representing 38 percent of all knife crimes across England and Wales and averaging 41 knife crimes a day
Londons political class is clearly out of touch with reality and does not strike at the root of its crime problem. Until it starts considering tougher policing methods or measures that allow for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, we can only expect crime to continue to increase.

They obviously need knife control. Sarcasm.
Start with getting rid of butter knives. They are a gateway knife. /sheldon
Unfortunately, it's not sarcasm.
What a surprise. Khan is an islamist pig-dog.
It’s Britain, where knifes are actually illegal, and if you defend yourself in your home, you are going to jail and the burglar can sue you.
England has gone utterly, merrily mad.
With one’s head buried in the ground, the world is at peace.
but what if he has a pointed stick?
At least they don’t worry
Today the only people in Britain who have guns are the criminals.As a result crime is out of control.Once it becomes impossible for decent citizens to get knives (including butter knives) the next thing politicians will do is to ban cricket bats.
You have to accept it when living in a muzzie controlled city...the mayor says so,get used to it.
They have knife control in London. It’s not working.
Wasn't he the British soldier who was murdered by some moslem pig fornicator? I read fairly recently that British soldiers are being encouraged not to wear their uniforms while among the general public because it makes them a target for "devout" moslems.
It’s part and parcel of living in a big city as London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, said.
Even John Cleese has recently said that he cannot see London as being a British city anymore.
Nothing worse than a British socialist fag.
Im so glad I traveled to many European countries with my children when they were teenagers. They dont seem to have the need to go now that many of their friends do now.
