Knife crime in Britain surges to record highs, despite Mayor Khan’s ‘knife control’ policies.

The United Kingdom, especially London, has recently experienced a drastic increase in knife crime, despite ‘knife control’ efforts to stem the violence, newly released data has revealed.

In both England and Wales, knife crime is up 8 percent from April 2018 to May 2019. British police reports across 43 departments have documented a total of 47,136 incidents involving sharp objects, an Office of National Statistics crime report indicated.

In April of 2018, London’s widely reviled Mayor Sidiq Khan implemented blade bans in the city. However, the data suggests that the ban doesn’t seem to be working. The ONS crime report also revealed that since 2018, blades found on individuals have increased by an astounding 21 percent.

The 8 percent nation-wide rise in knife crime equates to an increase of more than 3,3000 knife-related incidents compared to the same time last year. It’s thought that an even greater number of knife-related incidents occurred but went unrecorded since data from the UK’s Greater Manchester Police was excluded, according to the ONS report.

In the UK, knife crime has been sharply rising years now, increasing by greater than 42 percent since 2011. Likewise, threats to kill with blades and rape at knifepoint are up 18 percent in the last year alone.

Sadiq Khan, despite his long list of shortcomings, has managed to acknowledge the rise in crime over the years, much of which has happened during his tenure as mayor. Khan, son of a Pakistani immigrant, has blamed the sharp increase of violence on a system of ‘increasing inequality’, Fox News reports.

“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,” Khan claimed.

Knife crime isn’t the only kind of violence that’s on the rise in the UK, however.

A 3 percent increase in offenses with firearms was also seen in 2018, while unregistered guns were found at a rate 40 percent higher than was seen in 2018. Britain has some of the most strict laws in the world concerning the private ownership of guns.

Just a couple months ago in May, BBC reported that: “There has been one fatal stabbing every 1.45 days so far this year in England and Wales.”

  1. It would be interesting to know how many of those incidents were by illegal immigrants and gangs. He states: “…increasing inequality and alienation caused by years of austerity and neglect,” as if government fiscal policies has anything to do with it.

  2. Khan is a Muslim fifth columnist bent on importing jihadists by the 1000 into the UK in preparation for sharia law. He is aided and abetted in this betrayal by a government looking beyond the UK, to a globalist alliance, where they can pursue their godless agenda and rise through their serried ranks. Meanwhile, the citizens of Britain, will find to their sorrow how their benighted support for proponents of Islamic domination like Jeremy Corbyn will lead them into permanent misery.
