Labour's Mr David Lammy, who is of the same political party as London Mayor Mr Sadiq Khan, has been widely mocked on social media after he repeated Mr Khan’s claims that the national government is to blame for the police cuts and that he ‘hadn’t seen police anywhere’, whilst there was an officer standing behind him.

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">David Lammy is after Diane Abbott’s crown for most half-witted member of the Labour Party<br><br> <a href="https://t.co/OWDdFUFhP6">pic.twitter.com/OWDdFUFhP6</a></p>&mdash; ProActive Patriots (@ActivePatriots) <a href="https://twitter.com/ActivePatriots/status/981926457894162432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 5, 2018</a></blockquote>

In the midst of the utter crime madness in London, the leftwing Labour party has probably received orders from its leadership to attack the government in every interview for their budget cuts in policing rather than that admit that Mayor Khan’s policies of the last few years have failed.

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Making excuses for failing Labour London Mayor - David Lammy tells the BBC.<br>“We haven’t seen a police while I&#39;ve been here&quot; <br><br>Must have been taking lessons from Mr Corbyn - the master of not seeing things right in front of him… <a href="https://t.co/pg3Oqdu7tV">pic.twitter.com/pg3Oqdu7tV</a></p>&mdash; Amandeep SinghBhogal (@AmandeepBhogal) <a href="https://twitter.com/AmandeepBhogal/status/981927188890030080?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 5, 2018</a></blockquote>

The Tottenham Member of Parliament for Labour, Mr David Lammy, therefore appeared live on the national broadcaster BBC where he could be seen complaining about a lack of police presence in the city and even claimed he hadn't seen an officer since he had been in the area.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">David Lammy - <br><br>‘Been here an hour and still can’t find any Jews.’ <a href="https://t.co/4k7IAzEOCd">pic.twitter.com/4k7IAzEOCd</a></p>&mdash; Rob Boyd (@avonandsomer) <a href="https://twitter.com/avonandsomer/status/981988654234161152?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 5, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

“It feels like neighborhood policing has vanished, it’s not around you. We haven’t seen police in a while and I’ve been here for quite a while now.”

As there was an officer standing in the background during the interview, you can imagine the public’s reaction.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">David Lammy on holiday in Egypt - &#39;I&#39;ve been here for two weeks and I haven&#39;t seen one pyramid &#39; <a href="https://t.co/hb8EBI2YGG">pic.twitter.com/hb8EBI2YGG</a></p>&mdash; Joe (@Brikka39) <a href="https://twitter.com/Brikka39/status/981914144294277120?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 5, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

The internet responded with fire and fury to Mr Lammy’s claim, mocking him in various ways.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">David Lammy visiting Stonehenge- &#39;I&#39;ve travelled hours to get here and I haven&#39;t seen one bloody rock!!
