You’ve seen the interview.
Yesterday London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan told Piers Morgan and his co-host that the reason the London Bridge jihadists weren’t under surveillance was due to a low budget.
‘I can’t follow 400 people… the Met Police budget, roughly 15-20 per cent comes from me, the Mayor. The rest is funded by central government. If the Met Police budget is being shrunk and reduced, they’ve got to prioritise and use their resources in a sensible, savvy way.’
When Piers pressed what could be a bigger priority than tracking jihadists in the UK’s capital city, Mr. Khan had no answer.
So why are London’s Met Police unable to fund surveillance on jihadists?
Well, one simple reason.
They’re too busy arresting people over ‘hate crimes’.
According to Breitbart: The Metropolitan Police have arrested 25 people since Saturday’s terror attacks, using hate crime legislation to crack down on words and actions deemed either offensive, or which target people “because of their race, religion, sexual orientation” or disability.
Speaking on Thursday, Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer, the head of “Community Engagement” for the Metropolitan Police, said:
“Since Saturday evening’s attacks, we have increased the number of officers on the streets and in communities to reassure local people that they are able to go about their daily lives in peace and without fear of harassment or intimidation. Dedicated ward officers have also made contact with their local places of worship to encourage them to report hate crimes and to reassure those who congregate there that the police will take these crimes seriously. The Metropolitan Police has made 25 arrests for hate crime offences since Saturday.”
London’s police force needs to refocus it’s energy and funds.
Terrorism is a bigger priority than someone mouthing off racist, sexist, homophobic or Islamophobic comments.
Wouldn’t you say?
With all the time and effort taken to arrest those 25 people, imagine what could have been done to combat the very terrorists living in London now.
