The figures are in and it makes damning reading for Sadiq Khan and the Labour Party.
Khan was elected London Mayor in May 2016.
In less than two years in the job he has made London overtake New York as one of the most dangerous major cities in the Western world.
In that time too, the number of violent acid attacks in London has soared by more than 78%.
Parliament recently revealed that Britain’s capital has more acid attacks per capita than any other city in the world.
Once an evil phenomenon confined to the savage lands of Asian Muslims, the practise has been introduced here to ‘enrich’ British culture.
Last year there were 397 incidents. Separate figures show the number of victims rose from 281 in the whole of 2015 to 487 in the 10 months to October last year.
The data — obtained from the Met police under a Freedom of Information request — also revealed:
- Younger people are most likely to be victims of acid attacks, with more than 50 per cent of offences involving victims aged between 10 and 29.
- Most victims are also male, 351 in the 10 months last year, with the percentage of female victims falling significantly in the last 10 years.
- Most suspects in the past three years are in the 10-19 age group and the vast majority are male.
While using his high profile platform to compromise our nations’ ‘special relationship’ by stoking disputes with the President of the United States, Khan has managed to bring about significant rises in knife crime, gun crime, theft, burglary, rape, homicide, female genital mutilation and more.
Right wing pundits expected that Khan would be bad news for London, few predicted just how much of a disaster.
From the years 2015/16 to 2016/17, homicides in London rose by 27.1 per cent.
Youth homicide jumped 70 per cent.
Serious youth violence was up 19 per cent.
Robbery was up 33.4 per cent, while home burglaries rose by 18.7 per cent.
Theft went up by over 10,000 incidents in a year, up 33.9 per cent, and there were more than 4,000 additional knife crime incidents under Khan than under his predecessor, a rise of 31.3 per cent.
Rape in the capital rose by 18.3 per cent, while there were 2,551 incidents of gun crime, representing a rise of 16.3 per cent on the previous year.
Retreating to the default Socialist’s position, all the problem requires, according to Khan, is throwing even more of taxpayers’ money at the problem.
The problem, he asserts while hoping that honest media outlets don’t reveal that actual figure, lies in the government’s “police cuts”.
Let’s look at the statistics:
London has lost just 1,000 officers in the past year, 3% of the force, reducing it from 31,343 to 30,379.
The strain has been made greater by police forces taking officers off the streets to search instead for online social media ‘hate speech’.
Prior to Khan’s disastrous tenure as London Mayor, the Conservatives had reduced the number of deaths of young people from 30 to between 10 and 15 per year – a more than 50% reduction.
This is a huge story. Why isn’t Sadiq facing media pressure on this?
For the same reason that the media is silent on Sweden, Venezuela, South Africa and the rest of those countries spiralling into ‘hell-hole’ status as a result of its Left wing governments’ incompetence, lies, greed and wickedness.
Out of forty categories, crime fell in just six:
Anti-social behaviour calls (-1.2%), domestic abuse incidents (-4%), domestic abuse with injury (-1%), non-home or business burglaries (-10%), criminal damage (-1.6%) and disability-related hate crime (-34%).
