KHAN’S LONDON: May To Blame For Crime Rise Says Embattled Mayor
Sadiq Khan who is under growing pressure following daily reports of violent crime in the capital city has attempted to blame Theresa May for the outrage. A total of 37 murders have been committed in London throughout the last two months. In February, the Metropolitan Police recorded 15 murders in London, while 14 murders were recorded in New York.
In an exchange on Twitter with Labour MP for Brent, Dawn Butler, Mr Khan clearly attempted to blame Mrs May for out of control crime in the capital. Ms Butler tweeted:
1/3 You can’t protect people on the cheap! When will this government start focusing on investing in local communities instead of cutting everything from sure start to youth centres. Youth workers to teachers? Its a struggle that the gov is ignoring. https://t.co/4ej1Njj4My

Mr Khan said in response:
Agree. Government cuts have decimated services for young Londoners across our city. City Hall have announced our £45 million Young Londoners fund to support young people to thrive and fulfil their potential. https://t.co/i0XKj0MwEy

However, as we have previously reported, Mr Khan has always found plenty of money for vanity projects in the capital while repeatedly saying there was not enough money available for extra police. Certainly, if there is one thing that Mr Khan is proving adept at it is passing the buck and failing to take responsibility for his decisions as well as failing totally to protect people who live and work in our capital city.
