MP Admits Knife GPS Tracker Idea Was ‘Probably A Bit Sh*t’

Scott Mann has made a pretty decent recovery from his hilariously bad ‘knife GPS’ idea this morning, reading through joke tweet replies with Johnny Mercer. Although Guido agrees he does have a point about knife crime being a serious issue. 17.4 million people were stabbed in the back yesterday…

Not the Sharpest MP

Scott Mann, the Tory MP for North Cornwall, has come out with an interesting solution to the knife crisis, put a GPS tracker in the handle of every knife and put knife owners in a national database. So that is every household in the country- well apart possibly from Scott Mann’s. He shouldn’t be allowed sharp instruments…

The suspicion is the former Chancellor wants to turf out his colleagues and have it all to himself.
