Khan on Violent Crime Crisis: ‘We’ve Done Nothing Wrong’

Sadiq Khan has claimed he has “done nothing wrong” as London mayor during the capital’s worst violent crime crisis in decades. Speaking on LBC Khan said:

“I accept responsibility for policing in London… I don’t think we’ve done anything wrong in London.”

Khan was personally criticised last month after he disappeared for days – before finally commenting as knife deaths reached 50 so far this year. He also admitted he hadn’t met bereaved families and his office blamed purdah rules for his silence. Not a great look…

UPDATE: Incoming from Tory London vice chair Paul Scully:

“Sadiq Khan needs to take action on violent crime for the safety of Londoners. As the Mayor of London he has direct responsibility – and the powers – to tackle violent crime in our city, and shifting the blame will not save the lives that are tragically being lost on the capital’s streets.”

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
