Knife Crime is Out of Control in Sadiq Khan’s London

Published

on

London continues its downward spiral under London Mayor Saddiq Khan’s 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 doesn’t help that the UK has an expansive welfare state that is not very conducive to immigrant assimilation. One needn’t look further at the case of Sweden to see how welfare states incentivize socially destructive behavior among immigrant groups.

It also doesn’t help that the UK doesn’t 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. With such restrictions on civilian firearm ownership, one would think that British officials would at least consider stepping up their law enforcement programs.

Sadly, elected officials like Sadiq Khan have treated Britain’s recent knife crime wave like a public health problem as opposed to a criminal problem. Mayor Khan has even ignored calls for a return to a law and order approach to policing.

London, and the rest of England, for that matter, desperately needs better policing. The Guardian recently exposed the UK’s growing knife crime epidemic:

“Police recorded 39,598 offences involving a knife or sharp instrument in the year to December 2017, a 22% increase compared with the previous year (32,468), and the highest number registered since comparable records started in 2010.”

Breitbart also provided a sobering view of London’s knife problem:

“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.”

Responding like a typical busybody politician, Sadiq Khan advocated for knife control as a response to knife attacks in London. On top of that, London is already the most surveilled city in the world, with approximately 51,000 cameras deployed to monitor its citizens.

London’s 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.

ORWELLIAN: New Rules Allow Patients to be Denied Health Care for Expressing ‘Racist’ or ‘Sexist’ Beliefs in Britain

Big Brother is taking shape rapidly.

Published

on

New rules are set to go into effect in Britain that will deny health care to people guilty of harboring “racist” or “sexist” sentiments, a decision that could eventually have a chilling effect on free speech in the United Kingdom.

There are laws currently on the books in place to allow healthcare officials in the socialized system to deny care to people who are verbally or physically hostile and aggressive toward them. This will be now expanded to include bullying and discrimination, including any type of racism, sexism and homophobia. This will give broader discretion to NHS officials to deny care to individuals, which could include their political opponents.

“Being assaulted or abused is not part of the job,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock wrote on Tuesday in a message to all NHS staff.

“Far too often I hear stories that the people you are trying to help lash out. I’ve seen it for myself in A&Es, on night shifts, and on ambulances,” he added.

Hancock claims that he is “horrified that any member of the public would abuse or physically assault a member of our NHS staff but it happens too often.”

He says that his office will be working with Crown Prosecution Service to ensure that people who express supposedly hateful views will not only be denied healthcare, but investigated and punished punitively as well.

“All assault and hate crimes against NHS staff must be investigated with care, compassion, diligence and commitment,” he said.

This comes as more NHS workers are reporting that they have experienced abuse on the job. Roughly one in seven of the approximately 569,000 staff members who were surveyed reported being physically attacked on the job. This is happening as Britain is aggressively Islamified under the thumb of globalism and multiculturalism.

British authorities will not do anything to repel the flood of Muslims invading from the third world as a result of this troubling news. They will, however, enact new laws to punish so-called racists and sexists.

NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens claims that his organization is “determined to clamp down on abuse and aggression in all its forms.”

Other troubling findings from the NHS survey show that 40.3 percent of workers feel an excessive amount of work-related stress, and 22.9 percent of workers believe their time pressures are unrealistic. These figures have both raised over the past year.

37 percent of NHS staff members have reported that they have experienced bullying during their frequent face-to-face interactions with patients. In addition, 9 percent of workers have reported harassment or bullying from colleagues while 12 percent have reported mistreatment from their managers.

All of this news paints a dismal picture for a socialized healthcare system that is already overburdened, resulting in massive backlogs for patients looking to receive critical care. Figures recently released by NHS showed that a record 100,000 patients were left waiting for healthcare for more than four hours in January, with thousands of them delayed for more than 12 hours.

With all of these problems facing the NHS, the politically correct British government chooses to tackle supposed hate speech instead of the real problems. These new rules may allow people to be denied healthcare services because of their political beliefs, as anyone who criticizes drag queen grooming parties at libraries or the Islamic take-over already considered a bigot in the eyes of the British authorities.
