Wow… Just Wow. These shocking statistics show what London is becoming under Sadiq Khan. Sunday Times reports that London murder rate in February and March higher than New York. Never thought I’d see that day.’ London’s murder rate has overtaken New York City’s for the first time as Scotland Yard announced yesterday that it is investigating the 12th killing in just 19 days.
Fifteen people were murdered in the capital in February compared with 14 in New York, which has a similar population size. The latest figures for March showed 23 killings in London compared with 21 in the American city.

Remainer campaigner and anti-alt right activist, Edith, proclaimed that BREXIT was to blame.
She said: “Maybe it’s because of all the hate and division caused by Brexit? Maybe if people were more understanding and accepting then we wouldn’t have so much rage on our streets. Let’s invest in education for young people and migrants rather than forcing them into crime.”

The Government's own Brexit analysis shows that the best way to protect jobs and growth in Britain is to remain in the single market. There’s still time to abandon this damaging hard-Brexit approach & make staying in the single market and customs union their top priority. pic.twitter.com/wRVeHgDA7N
