With today’s stabbing in Islington which closed Upper Street for the best part of the afternoon we have now got the grim tally of 26 young people killed with knives and guns this year in London, which is precisely one every two weeks. Today’s victim was 16, the average age of all the 26. What a waste? See BBC story here.
Whilst the Mayor and his discredited Commissioner, Ian “Limpet” Blair, try to kid us that everything is rosy in London’s crime garden, and the Mayor’s lead on policing, the sleaze engulfed Lee Jasper, fights to keep his Â£117K salary young people are being killed at a horrendous rate – one every two weeks. I hope that we can get to the end of the year without another.
