And then they came for our Steak Knives…

Knife crime in London is on the rise in the last year, according to the BBC:

There were 37,443 offences in the 12 months ending in September 2017, a 21% increase on the previous year and the highest number since 2011, the earliest point for which comparable data is available.

London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan has announced new Knife control policies, including putting knife wands in every school and granting extra stop and search powers for the Met Police in areas deemed worst-affected.

He took his message to Twitter:

Authors note: I tried to find 3 sources of positive tweets to balance this story out, but after 20 minutes I gave up after only finding two.

The UK Governments website also reports that new legislation is in the works to ban anyone from buying a knife online, as well as making it illegal to possess “zombie knives” and “knuckledusters” in private.

I’ll let this tweet speak for itself.
