Knife Crime and Murder Rate Up

New crime stats via the ONS:

  • a continued rise in the number of offences involving knives or sharp instruments, with police recording 16% more offences this year compared with last year
  • the number of homicides recorded by the police showed a fourth consecutive rise, increasing by 12% compared with last year; this follows a long-term decline
  • these offences tend to be concentrated in London and other metropolitan areas

When are the PM and Mayor of London going to get a grip?

Quote of the Day

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
