Londoners waited for five days to hear their infamous Mayor Mr. Sadiq Khan respond to the fact that the UK capital has now overtaken New York when it comes to the number of murders, after seven people died in a week, with the last one an 18-year-old just yesterday.

Mr. Khan: "I'm angered and heartbroken by the number of violent deaths on our streets this week - and this year.

"Twelve of those who have lost their lives this year have been teenagers. As the father of two teenagers daughters, I worry as a dad, and that's why we have to make sure we grapple with this problem - but I can't solve it by myself."

"In the last seven years, we have lost £700 million from the policing budget. My message to the Government is please work with us to solve this national problem."

Mr. Khan reacted after he was criticized by former Conservative leaver Mr. Iain Duncan Smith for reportedly being ‘missing in action’.

Meanwhile, former UKIP leader Mr. Nigel Farage blasted the mayor on his radio show for his beloved London going through such a hard time.

Mr. Farage said: "I never thought I would see the day when the murder rate in London would overtake that of New York.”

"I wonder whether the London mayor Sadie Khan should spend a bit less time slagging off Donald Trump and a bit more time getting to grips with crime in London because clearly, we have a real bad problem here."

I think hes right that's its the gov's fault… the gov is the one that allowed all the terrorists a target rich environment. I don't agree with arresting anyone caught with a knife as that is all these poor Londoners can defend themselves with. In their overly PC country its against the law to say the invaders are the problem.

This is what happens when a liberal government, outlaws guns, 12 people murdered in his first 10 days as mayor of gun-free London! What a great experiment! The liberals prove their own idiot ideology is wrong! Just look at Venezuela, it only took the corrupt government four years to destroy the country after they took the guns
