  • “If it was hot weather right now, it would be carnage. When it gets a few degrees warmer, it’s going to be taxing. It’s going to be difficult,” Dr Martin Griffiths  told The Times.

 

London’s crime wave will develop into “carnage” come summer, a leading trauma surgeon has predicted, warning ultra-violence in the capital is “the new normal”.

Dr Martin Griffiths, a consultant surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust, said soaring knife and gun crime has resulted in London “looking more like South Africa, or inner-city U.S.” with regards to the rate of attacks.

“If it was hot weather right now, it would be carnage. When it gets a few degrees warmer, it’s going to be taxing. It’s going to be difficult,” he told The Times.

The doctor, who earlier this month revealed some of his military colleagues have likened the situation seen in London trauma wards to hospitals in Middle East warzones, said that treating young teenagers with life-threatening injuries had become “the bread and butter” of his work at the Royal London Hospital.

London’s Mayor Declares New ‘Knife Control’ Policies To Stop Epidemic Of Stabbings

Posted on Updated on

 

( Daily Wire ) An epidemic of stabbings and acid attacks in London has gotten so bad that London mayor Sadiq Khan is announcing broad new “knife control” policies designed to keep these weapons of war out of the hands of Londoners looking to cause others harm.

The “tough, immediate” measures involve an incredible police crackdown, a ban on home deliveries of knives and acid, and expanding law enforcement stop-and-search powers so that police may stop anyone they believe to be a threat, or planning a knife or acid attack

Khan announced Friday that the city has created a “violent crime taskforce of 120 officers” tasked with rooting out knife-wielding individuals in public spaces, and is pumping nearly $50 million dollars into the Metropolitan Police department, so that they can better arm themselves against knife attacks. He’s also empowering the Met Police to introduce “targeted patrols with extra stop and search powers for areas worst-affected,” according to a statement.

SHARIA LONDON KNIFE ATTACK EPIDEMIC! MURDER RATE OVERTAKES NEW YORK

Posted on

  • London’s gun laws are among the strictest in the nation, but a significant spike in knife crimes is the driving force behind this crime wave.

 

( Daily Caller ) For the “first time in modern history,” London had more murders in February than New York City did, according to The Times.

London’s 15 killings were above New York City’s 14 murders for the month. And a similar trend appears to be developing as March’s final data rolls in, with London edging New York City by a margin of 22 to 21.

According to research from the University of California’s Eric Monkkonen, London’s murder rate has been half or significantly less than New York City’s for well over 200 years, until early 2018.

London’s gun laws are among the strictest in the nation, but a significant spike in knife crimes is the driving force behind this crime wave. Last year alone, 80 people were killed by stabbing, and this year’s pace of 29 so far is set to overtake that. Labour MP Sarah Jones called London’s knife crime wave an “epidemic.”

$1 BILLION U.S. EMBASSY IN LONDON IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE IN THE WORLD – TOOK 4 YEARS TO BUILD! – PHOTOS

Posted on Updated on

  • US Embassy relocated from the swanky neighbourhood of Mayfair to a more industrial one, Nine Elms, on the South Bank of the Thames.
  • Peter Rees, the City of London’s former head of planning, told the New York Times this was akin to “moving from New York’s Upper East Side to New Jersey.”
  • Ground was broken on November 13, 2013, and the building opened to the public on December 13, 2017.
  • On February 23, 2010, the U.S. government announced that a team led by the firm of KieranTimberlake had won the competition to design the new embassy building and surrounding green spaces

 

The new American Embassy in London is the most expensive in the world and includes safety features like a small moat.

Coming at a cost of $1bn and months behind schedule, the new building will have a 100-foot moat on the riverside which is supposedly designed to withstand terrorist attacks, the Daily Mail reported.

The new US diplomatic outpost is being relocated from the swanky neighbourhood of Mayfair to a more industrial one, Nine Elms, on the South Bank of the Thames.

Peter Rees, the City of London’s former head of planning, told the New York Times this was akin to “moving from New York’s Upper East Side to New Jersey.”

The current embassy in Grosvenor Square has been the target of terrorist threats in the past and a nuisance to its wealthy neighbours, prompting one aristocrat – a countess named Anca Vidaeff – to stage a hunger strike in protest of it, according to the newspaper.

On October 8, 2008, the embassy announced a conditional agreement with the real estate developer Ballymore to purchase property for a new embassy site on the south bank of the River Thames in the Nine Elms area of the London Borough of Wandsworth.[17] The site lies within the Vauxhall/Nine Elms/Battersea Opportunity Area as set out in the London Plan. The proposed plan would only go forward if approved by the United States Congress and by the local planning authority.[18] The Northern line extension to Battersea will have new stations at Battersea and Nine Elms—combined with major local development.

 

In November 2009, the U.S. government conditionally agreed to sell the Grosvenor Square Chancery Building to Qatari real-estate investment firm Qatari Diar, which in 2007 purchased the Chelsea Barracks.[20]The building is now one of Mayfair’s 238 listed buildings and monuments.[22][23] In 2016 plans were approved for the conversion of the building into a hotel.[24]

On February 23, 2010, the U.S. government announced that a team led by the firm of KieranTimberlake had won the competition to design the new embassy building and surrounding green spaces.[25] The winning design resembles a crystalline cube, with a semi-circular pond on one side (called a “moat” by The Times)[26] and surrounded by extensive public green spaces.[27]

Ground was broken on November 13, 2013, and the building opened to the public on December 13, 2017.

Donald Trump cancels his visit to Britain

 

President Trump:

Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!

 

 

 

LONDON: POLICE WON’T INVESTIGATE MINOR CRIMES UNLESS IT’S ‘HATE CRIME’, CRIMES SURGE UNDER MUSLIM MAYOR SADIQ KHAN

  • London’s Met Police Won’t Investigate Minor Crime, Only ‘Hate Crime’
  • London mayor Sadiq Khan presided over huge rises in knife crime, gun crime, theft, burglary, rape, homicide, and more. 

 

London’s Metropolitan Police force will not bother to investigate crimes if officers are required to watch CCTV for more than 20 minutes or there is no footage available.

The UK’s largest force will also drop investigations into thousands of lower-level offences and ignore certain crimes such as vandalism, vehicle crime, and fuel theft if damages do not exceed £50.

The new “crime assessment policy” was uncovered after a Freedom of Information request by The Times, and comes a time of increasing budgetary pressures and falling police numbers.

LONDON ‘NO-GO ZONES’ ‘Too Dangerous to Work’ FOR DELIVERY DRIVERS DUE TO Acid Attacks and Knife Crimes

Posted on Updated on

acid

 

Delivery drivers have branded large parts of London “no-go zones” in which acid attacks and rampant knife crime have made them too fearful to work.

The frequency of assaults using corrosive liquid in the city — officially the world capital of reported acid attacks — has left drivers choosing to take a big pay cut rather than braving dangerous areas of London at night.

“We used to work till 2am – now people are stopping before 10pm,” one moped driver revealed to The Sun.“After 8pm or 9pm, we’re not going to those dangerous places.”

Places named by delivery men as areas of the UK capital which are too dangerous to work include Hackney and Stoke Newington — boroughs which local MP Diane Abbott boastsare “ethnically diverse”, noting just 36 per cent of residents describe themselves as white British. – READ MORE
