  • his solution is too deep on the police, and you could see this headline here just recently appeared on.

  • I'll read it out for you, it says.

  • Sadiq Khan announces £500 million cuts plan toe London Underground Met police and the London Fire Brigade.

  • And that plan is to defund the police with the latest budget cuts.

  • It's the equivalence off 1000 and 861 full time salaried officers.

  • Let me ask you, do you think taking nearly 2000 officers off the streets are gonna make those graphs go down?

  • Or do you think they're gonna make them go up and up and up?

  • And I want a quote from that article that says Quote.

  • Sadiq Khan has announced a plan to cut city halls costs by up to £500 million.

  • Policing London Fire Brigade and Transport for London are all set to see significant reductions in their budget over the next two years, and that includes that plan.

  • I mentioned to defund the police by £110 million.

  • I want to show you another headline that says police in England and Wales are now facing a new era of austerity.

  • This is something that our current mayor is promoting austerity for, for the same police force that is allowing our teenagers to die on the streets on the article goes on to quote the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has worn the funding crisis endangers the government's pledge to recruit 20,000 extra police officers to fight crime and risks leaving the police quote with one hand dyed behind tied behind their Bach, the article goes on to say quote.

  • Khan, who has lit mayor of London, oversees the largest force.

  • The Metropolitan Police warned the shortfall quote could jeopardize our ability to tackle it.

  • Violent crime at this crucial juncture, you think, Mayor, do you think you defunding them would actually hurt their ability?

  • And the article goes on to say quote.

  • In a letter to the sent to the home secretary, Con Ward warned of a quote.

  • New era of austerity for police, with frontline officer numbers under threat and the danger of crime rising.

  • Of course it's gonna rise.

  • But I kept doing my research, and it's not just this year that your current mayor of London has been crippling the police force.

  • And the more I go into these numbers, the more it sickens me to see what is actually happening and how it's affecting our Children dying on our streets.

  • Back in 2018, the current mayor was forced to admit that the number of police officers per head of population in London was at the lowest point in 20 years and that police spending per head had fallen faster in London than any other police force on his watch.

  • Quote.

  • City Hall data shows that in 2010, the Metropolitan Police had 4.1 officers per 1000 Londoners, but that ratio has now dropped to 3.3 officers per 1000.

  • It's at the lowest point for 20 years.

  • This is something that's not spoken about as the population of London has increased from seven million to nine million.

  • Even if you increase the number of officers, the officers per 1000 citizens will go down, and this is at the lowest point in 20 years.

  • In addition, we've also seen the largest reduction nationally at 20% in here in London, compared to 6% across the country.

  • London now has the lowest number of police officers per capita than any citizen is in any city in the U.

  • K.

  • Let me repeat that London now has the lowest number of police officers per capita than any city in the UK.

  • No wonder violent crime is going up.

  • No wonder knife crime is going up.

  • So how can the mayor expects safer streets?

  • If you're going to spend less on police, just do the mass.

  • It's simple.

  • Uh, the worst part of this whole situation is why all this is happening.

  • The mayor is pointing the finger.

  • He blames the national government.

  • He blames the police.

  • He blames, uh, music.

  • He blames boredom, and meanwhile, it's you and I that suffer because we go out into the streets.

  • We fear for our own lives.

  • Our Children fear for their own lives.

  • Our Children are forced to arm themselves with knives because they fear for their own lives.

  • And then the cycle of nine knife violence continues and continues and continues where, 20 years from the anniversary of the shocking killing of a 10 year old boy here in the streets of London when he was walking home from school.

  • What have we done since then?
