UK knife crime rises by 8 percent to record high as London mayor blames ‘austerity’

The knife crime epidemic plaguing England and Wales has reached a record high in 2018-19 with such offenses increase by at least 8 percent, new figures show.

The data released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that there were 43,516 police-recorded offenses involving a knife or sharp instrument, the highest figure since such records began in 2011.


quote:

The increasing knife crime is particularly evident in London, where Mayor Sadiq Khan has been trying to contain the problem.

“The sad reality is the violence we're seeing on our streets today is an appalling side effect of increasing inequality and alienation caused by years of austerity and neglect,” he said in public remarks earlier this week.

He added that there’s a “direct link” between poverty and violent crime, according to the data published the City Hall.

The UK jumped the shark a long time ago. We should strive to not be like them.

Does anybody have a picture of their Surrender your firearms back in the 90's when they banned those?

Now the problem are knives?

Are you sure it's not the human element and all these bombs, guns, knives, cars are just the... tools?

They can have your toe knife. But over my dead body can they take my poop knife.

I think Muslims are more the problem than knives.

Just make sure there's not too much poop on it to open the cat food

Just glad there weren’t those knife boxes around when I was a drunk visitor to London a couple times in college. There’s a good chance I would have either broken into that thing, taken the whole receptacle, or been arrested trying to do the above mentioned acts.

Acid attacks are on the rise there, too. Are they going to put out collection bins for acid?

The East End of London looks more like Bangladesh or Pakistan than Europe. I'm sure that has nothing to do with it though.

Maybe they should remove all the Confederate statues that are the root cause of all evil.

Apparently, in order to get support for the crusades, English leaders would tell the populace that the Arabs would invade if they didn’t stop them now.

They should’ve listened.

The goat frickers didn’t invade, they were invited.

“Oi mate, you have a loiscense for dat knoife?” But seriously Sadiq Khan sucks as a mayor. The UK needs to nut up. It’s probably gone downhill the most out of all the European countries in the last 10 years.
