    Apparently, crime has been skyrocketing lately in London. In spite of strict gun control laws, London is now on a par with New York.

    Mayor Sadiq Khan reportedly says: "No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law."

    Khan is also scheduling more police "stop and search" stings to catch people who look like they might be carrying knives in their pockets or purses.

    I am happy to say that this has made him into a real laughing stock on Twitter.
