SADIQ Khan is at it again. The deluded London Mayor was recently questioned by Gareth Bacon – leader of the GLA Conservative group – as to whether London is a safer place now than it was when he became mayor. To which Khan responds with a pathetic “I do”.
A bemused Bacon goes on to comment on gun crime figures that show that in 2015/2016 the met reported 1,804 gun related offences. After Khan took office however the figure shot up by 30% to 2,342. Bacon persists “So again, do you think that saying London is not less safe now than when you took over was an honest thing to say?” to which Khan – utterly lacking charisma – mutters “I do”.
Gareth’s calm demeanour begins to drift away. “Gun crime is up. Robbery is up. Knife crime is up. Rape is up. Car theft is up. Burglary is up. Knife crime with injury is up. Knife crime with injury and robbery is up”. He asks one more time “You think honestly that London is more safe now than when you took over as mayor?”. To which Khan says…Yes you guessed it “I do”. It isn’t a wedding Sadiq!
Sadiq’s responses to cold hard statistics is absolutely extraordinary as Bacon says. And he would know. Bacon penned a damning report entitled “The Cost of Khan” for the GLA conservatives that outlines Khan’s repeated failures as Mayor of London. The report cites figures that show that there has been a 24% increase in homicides from 2016 to 2018 (135) which is the highest figure in ten years. Knife crime has increased 52.3% over the same period. Residential burglary has increased 36.9% and robbery has increased 59.3%. The capital is undeniably turning into a lawless shit hole.
Khan seems to be pre occupied with vanity projections like his annual pool party that is set to cost Londoners £300,000 He also took to the streets of London over the weekend to attend Pride. An LGBTQ+ rally that celebrates the progress that has been made for their community. An unusual appearance from a muslim who’s religion advocates for stoning to death as punishment for homosexuality.
Whilst Khan was dancing around on Regents Street. The bloodshed in the capital continued. Friday night saw the shooting of a man in Wembley. The body of a woman being found on Blackheath. Another man was shot in the early hours of Sunday morning in Leyton. And another man was found unresponsive in Monks Park at 7pm on Sunday evening. If for murder investigations in 48 hours isn’t enough. Another man was arrested for attempted murder after stabbing a woman and her three children. Sadiq is remaining characteristically silent.
Unfortunately for Khan Londoners are not buying it his pool party and Pride PR stunts. Petitions calling for the impeachment and resignation of Khan have been garnering more and more support over the last few years. With one calling for the impeachment of the Mayor receiving over 80,000 signatories. https://www.change.org/p/british-government-impeach-sadiq-khan-as-mayor-of-london
The GLA Conservatives tabled a fully costed amendment to the Mayor’s budget that would reallocate £82.7 million to 1,378 additional police officers in London. It was however rejected by Khan. He clearly doesn’t care for the safety of Londoners. He needs to take responsibility for his actions. Better fund the police force and give police back powers to use stop and search.
Congratulations Sadiq. You’ve fucked London
