Coming soon… (after the planned financial/economic collapse)….
If London Mayor, Sadiq Khan applied as much passion and aggression to the Murder Epidemic in London as he does to criticising Donald Trump and bleating about nasty comments on social media (From a luxury hotel in California) London may not have overtaken New York in homicide statistics.
The problem with Khan and the Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick is that like many in the UK Establishment they are so busy virtue signaling and worrying about diversity targets they miss the mugging, murder and mayhem going on right in front of their liberal blinkered eyes.
It’s an absolute outrage that there have been 49 murders in London since Christmas and to be frank I can only see the grisly toll increasing as most of the solutions being put forward at the moment are the equivalent of putting a sticking plaster on a severed jugular.
FARAGE: “I wonder whether the London Mayor Sadiq Khan should spend a bit less time slagging off Donald Trump and a bit more time getting to grips with crime in London.
“Clearly we have a really bad problem.” https://t.co/zAvIliixgh

London has overtaken New York City for number of murders for the first time in over 200 years under the mayoralty of Labour’s Sadiq Khan.
Britain’s multicultural capital edged ahead of the American city — once so notorious for its high crime rates that it was chosen as the setting for Charles Bronson’s Death Wish –– in February, The Times reports.
London saw 15 killings to New York’s 14 over the course of the month, and appears to have outstripped ‘Gotham’ yet again in March, with 22 killings to 21.
Speaking at South By Southwest, Khan advocated increased internet censorship

Rapes are soaring in Britain’s multicultural capital under Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan — but police claim they have no idea what could be behind the increase.
7,613 rapes were recorded in Sadiq Khan’s London in the 12 months to the end of January 2018, compared with 6,392 over the previous year — a rise of almost 20 per cent, the Evening Standard reports.
Some have attempted to attribute the rise to victims being more confident in coming forward, but Khan’s Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Sophie Linden, has admitted that the figures could point to a legitimate “increase in actual sexual violence and rape offending”.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has reportedly called for more gender-neutral bathrooms for transgender and “non-binary” citizens in a new city plan.
According to the Guardian, Khan’s plan for London argues that more gender-neutral toilets should be built “in public spaces to help trans and non-binary people feel more comfortable.”
The “public spaces” will include commercial developments, the Guardian reports, as well as “shops, leisure facilities and large public areas that are suitable for all users, including disabled people, older people and families with young children.”
The order follows months of campaigning by LGBTQ activists, who appealed to London Mayor Sadiq Khan to change the language used by train and bus drivers, which they described as “polite but really belonging to yesterday,” according to the Evening Standard.
On a trip to New York City, London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan has said terror attacks are “part and parcel” of urban life, just hours after an Islamic terrorist bombed the city.
Mr. Khan also seized the opportunity to launch an explicit attack on the Brexit vote and rise of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. He compared to two movements, claiming they are both driven by “scapegoating”.
“All these problems will not be solved by voting to leave the EU or voting for – I don’t want to name the candidate – a president of the USA,” he said.
Ever since he officially took office on May 9, London’s first Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan wasted no time in criticizing and attacking Donald Trump’s proposed Muslim ban. Several days ago, the presumptive candidate told the New York Times that he was happy to see Mr Khan elected, saying it could be “very, very good.” However, the pleasantry was not returned, and instead Khan said Trump’s “ignorant” view of Islam could make both Britain and the US less safe, which ironically implies more potential terrorist attacks by Muslims in both the US and the UK.
Khan brushed aside Trump’s suggestion that he would exempt him from his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States, and said that “this isn’t just about me – it’s about my friends, my family and everyone who comes from a background similar to mine, anywhere in the world,” he said. Quoted by the Telegraph, Khan added: “Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both of our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of extremists.” He may well be right, although it only pushes the discussion back to square one – how should the US (and not just the US in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels) defend itself from extremists?
