Farage BLASTS Khan: Stop Grandstanding And Tackle Crime!
Nigel Farage has told the Labour Mayor Of London, Sadiq Khan to “spend less time grandstanding” about U.S. President Donald Trump and “more time tackling epidemic levels of knife crime in London”.
Shocking data from Mr Khan’s own Police and Crime Office shows that knife crime, gun crime, theft, burglary, rape, homicide, and other serious crimes have all risen dramatically during his time in office.
Mr Khan flew to New York to team up with the city’s liberal mayor, Bill de Blasio, to campaign against the election of Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, during the last 12 months in London, homicides have risen by 27.1 percent; youth homicide leapt up 70 percent; serious youth violence was up 19 percent; and robbery leapt by 33.4 percent. Ironically, stats now show London is more dangerous than New York.
Mr Farage said during his LBC show:
“As it’s New Year, about what happened in London on New Year’s Eve: There were five separate knife attacks that took place in the capital that night, resulting in the deaths of four young people.
“That’s 80 people who died in London through knife crime in London in 2017 alone. It is a rise of 31 percent, year on year, from the previous figures. And you know, it isn’t just knife crime – all other forms of violent crime are rising very rapidly in London indeed.
“And I think that when Sadiq Khan the mayor of London, talks about these things he tends to talk in platitudes. I would advise a bit less attacking Donald Trump and other world leaders you don’t like, and we need some real tough community action.
“I’m not saying we can solve knife crime, but I think generally, the feeling is we’re not, frankly, doing quite enough to stop it.”
Also, lest we forget that Mr Khan infamously declared that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel of living in a major city”. His tenure has been nothing short of disastrous for Londoners who are far from safe on the streets of our capital or even in their own homes.
