Stab City.

Five more attacks in London and Trump hits out at Khan over the increased level of violence. 

Once a proud 'sarf' Londoner I'm now utterly ashamed of the place and sure Trump might be the pot calling the kettle black, but it is what it is, and that's shameful.

Soon it won't be only the police that feel obliged to wear stab vests, it will be all of us.

Re: Stab City.

IIRC it was Theresa May as home Secretary who cut back on targeted stop and search that had been so successful in reducing stabbings under Boris Johnson's time ( he increase them which led to a 50% drop in stabbings ).

 

IMHO Theresa Mays judgement has always been highly suspect.

That's the most hypocritical thing I've read in a long time.

Re: Stab City.

Unlike Trump I'd not jump to blame any individual for the mire of violence London seems to have found itself stuck it and tempting though it is, I'll not point my finger in any one direction. But I'll bet you a pound to a penny that before the culprits are found we'll all have a pretty good idea of what they will look like. 

Am I wrong?

Wrong to think it maybe, but not always wrong with the result.

Re: Stab City.

Well I assume from that question @daveplus you’ve not been reading some of wotsup's latest posts. So I’ll let you do that first after which an explanation shouldn’t be required.

I don't. What do you actually mean?

Re: Stab City.

Exactly that @daveplus, I find it hypocritical of someone to call into question another person's judgement when their own is equally questionable.

@daveplus 

"Historically the murder has been significantly higher"

And?

I left 'the smoke' c1975 so do you have figures prior to that and before the population turned on it's head?

Sure there have always been crime in the Capital and I would not argue for increase or decrease as that does not tell the full story, but if you want to divorce that from the social, economic and yes, cultural changes then sorry mate, you are living in cloud cuckoo land.

Trying to box me into a Black or Asian pigeon hole I guess but hey, nice try.

Re: Stab City.

How so?

Get back to me when the cuprits are hauled in, given a 'slap on the wrist', and told not to do it again.
