SADIQ Khan spoke at the State Of London event last night and Londoners finally got a chance to vent their fury at the capitals failing Mayor, Sadiq Khan:
“In February alone, 250 knives and swords were seized across London, just within one week. We had 51 people who have fatally been stabbed in London since the beginning of this year.
“One of those people were stabbed 200 yards from a closed police station here in Greenwich where I live. Already, from 2018 we have 1,296 reported stabbings in London, according to these statistics.
“One of those happened outside that police station that is closed down, my local police station. There are no bobbies on our street. Londoners, we don’t feel safe. Our communities do not feel safe.
“You give me statistics, Mr Khan and that’s fair enough. But for me as a parent, I’m telling you, we do not feel safe. We don’t feel safe in London.
“Please don’t give me statistics. Give me known facts so I can let my son out on the streets of London and feel safe.”
Mr Khan attempted to deflect criticism once again by blaming budget cuts however the audience booed and jeered as he replied. His comments came as there was a fresh stabbing at New Eltham Station tonight. Londoners are starting to see through Khan’s lies and demand action – now we need to take the political fight to the ballot box and ensure London gets the Mayor it deserves and needs.
