Of course the blame is on the Londoners, because they haven't smiled with opened arms enough to make the new-comers feel at home?

London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced a crackdown on knives Sunday in response to the rising levels of violence in London, which recently surpassed New York City's homicide rate for the first time. 

There have been more than 50 homicides in London so far in 2018, and much of the violence is tied to gangs. 

Guns are strictly regulated in the United Kingdom and the rising homicide rate in London is directly attributable to a rise in knife-related crimes, with stabbings claiming at least 31 lives to date in 2018. By contrast, New York -- which has a population roughly the same size as London -- has seen a steady decline in violent crime.

I'm almost scared to say anything here and get the host in trouble and visited by the community security and POLICE again, as it was done during the STASI era, as read in WW2 books (check your history manuscripts at the library near you) .... the ANTIFA  THUGS,  have been pretty well described as a revolutionary communist-anarchist militia movement that aspires to forcibly overthrow the United States government, responsible for ''a level of sustained political street warfare not seen in the U.S. since the 1960s.''

Reports of Antifa violence are everywhere, which is why the U.S Department of Homeland Security has quietly designated Antifa as ''domestic terrorists.''

(Capital Research Center produced a three-part documentary series, America Under Siege, about Antifa and other political actors.)

Antifa is not a single organization: it is a movement or coalition of leftist groups, each of which claims to combat 'fascism,' a political ideology whose definition academics have been arguing about for decades.

Queensbury Tube shooting: Man killed and another hurt in latest London murder

Detectives are hunting a gunman after a man was shot dead in the capital's 63rd suspected murder this year.

In a double shooting outside Queensbury Tube station, passersby tried in vain to stem the flow of blood after the man was shot several times in the chest and stomach. The victim, in his 30s, begged for help at a taxi rank after he and his friend were shot at around 9pm on Tuesday night.

It's pretty clear that more western countries have gone more violent than ever.


Several people have been stabbed by a man in the Dutch city of The Hague, local media reported Saturday, citing the city's authorities. According to eyewitness posts in social media, the attacker shouted Allahu Akbar.

It's a humanitarian issue now

What have others said?

Labour MP David Lammy claimed that the violence was being exacerbated by turf wars between drug gangs.

‘What drives the gangs and the turf wars is an £11bn cocaine drugs market’, he told BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme.

‘We are the drugs market of Europe and I’m hearing nothing about what we’re going to do about that rising drugs market.

‘Drugs are prolific. It’s like Deliveroo. They’re as prolific as ordering a pizza. You can get them on Snapchat, WhatsApp. That in the end is driving the turf war and it’s driving the culture of violence.’
