A STABSVILLE UPDATE

By Pete Moore On June 17th, 2019

Cheyon Evans, 18, was stabbed to death on Friday afternoon in Wandsworth, south London. Mohamed Nadir Dafallah, 18, of Wandsworth, and a 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons have been charged with his murder. Both were ordered to appear in custody at the Old Bailey on Wednesday.

Another man in his 20s was arrested on Monday on suspicion of Mr Evans’ murder.

Minutes after Mr Evans was attacked, 19-year-old Eniola Aluko was shot dead in Plumstead, south-east London. Five people were arrested.

On Saturday, a man in his 30s died after he was stabbed in Tower Hamlets.

Just the usual then. Meanwhile, back in England, I’ve just had the most delicious – and rather large – slice of pork, chicken and ham pie. A dollop of Coleman’s mustard, some hame-made sauerkraut, a couple of picked onions and you can’t go wrong.

  1. I hear that your president mouthed off about London stabbings again.

    That’ll fix the problem.

  2. Your president Phantom. Mr Donald J. Trump is your president.

    I hear that the Mayor of London mouthed off about your president again. No doubt to distract from the disaster he and his kind are inflicting on London.

    I told you, London is becoming like Jo’Burg. I was right.

  3. The US has four times the murder rate as the UK

    Should UK politicians start lecturing the US on the US murder rate?

    And don’t get me started on total gun deaths by country. The US has about a 73 times higher gun death rate than the UK.

    The UK is a safe place by most any standard.

  4. Just the usual then. Meanwhile, back in England

    Indeed, thank the gods that you’re in Saughton Haughtbury Under Wode in leafy middle Englandshire and not In Scotland or North Wales. Come to think of it you should probably be grateful that Greater Manchester, Leicestershire, West Yorkshire and Derbyshire aren’t in Englandshire either:

    Using Office for National Statistics figures for homicide – both murder and manslaughter – in each British constabulary area (Sept 2016 – Sept 2017), we can see that London has a rate of 1.45 homicides per 100,000 people.

    This is around the same as Leicestershire (1.5), West Yorkshire (1.45) and Derbyshire (1.6).

    There are plenty of places with a worse rate and some may surprise you.

    The worst is Greater Manchester where 61 deaths led to a rate of around 2.44 homicides per 100,000 people.

    There were 12 homicides in Glasgow last year leading to a rate of about two per 100,000 and West Midlands Police recorded 44 homicides, giving the area a rate of about 1.76.

    Even North Wales Police, who recorded 13 homicides, has a higher rate than London at about 1.88

  5. sauerkraut…… one of the more nasty things to eat or cook…..

  6. Phantom and Paul

    Don’t confuse Pete with facts. It gives him a headache 😉

  7. Utah is one of the safest US states. A good place to live or to visit

    It’s homicide rate is higher than London’s!

  8. Ps. For my lunch today I had 2 little pork pies with mustard and vinegar. I had another two little pork pies with mustard and vinegar for my dinner this evening. I bought the pack of 4 in Sainsbury’s last night, they had been reduced to clear and cost me just 20p. I am a classy eater 😉

  9. Wow Colm! You mean you’re allowed to eat pork in London?

    BTW, Colemans really is a work of devine inspiration.

  10. Pete, have you ever tried pickling eggs? Great fun.

  11. Charles did you read my RICO post?

    If you could I’d like your opinion of it.

    thanks

  12. I’m sure London is mostly safe, but like any big city has violent pockets. The same goes for an American city like Chicago or Dallas, where you don’t want to be caught on the wrong side of the tracks.

  13. “I hear that your president mouthed off about London stabbings again.”

    Khan started it! Don’t poke a bull with a stick and then moan when it reacts, or an eagle for that matter.

  14. Surely you mean a bald eagle Matt?

  15. He is putting himself in a pissing match with some mayor.

    No other president would do this.

    A real president would pick his fights a bit more carefully.

  16. Charles –

    Good to see you. I pickle eggs with beetroot. It gives them a lovely colour and tang. Plus beetroot is super nutritious.

  17. Beets ( beetroot ) rock.

    Cheap and yes nutritious.

    If you don’t love the earthy taste throw a bit in the blender with a bunch of other fruit and veg and juice.

  18. Beetroot is ambrosia from heaven, particularly pickled in vinegar. I eat beetroot literally every day.

  19. Paul

    I should eat more Beetroot. I do like it but don’t buy it enough. And yes it was was Coleman’s with my pork pie 😃

  20. I think the only thing worse than the taste of beetroot is the smell of it.

  21. He is putting himself in a pissing match with some mayor. No other president would do this.

    And of course the mayor in question just happens to be a Muslim.

  22. Trump was re-tweeting the comments of far-right Muslim hater Katie Hopkins. Birds of a feather.

  23. But this fake excuse for a president can’t not respond to any criticism.

    It’s a deeply stupid approach.

    The way to wound Khan is to not acknowledge that he exists.

    If Trump is criticized by the dog-catcher in Muncie Indiana he’ll spend the next year arguing with him.

  24. “London Mayor Sadiq Khan has called Donald Trump a “poster boy for racists” after the US President hit out at him over London’s knife crime. Mr Trump retweeted a post from right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins blaming the violence on “Khan’s Londonistan”. Her comments came after four people were killed in a spate of shootings and stabbings in London over three days…

    Speaking in central London on Monday, Mr Khan said: “It’s remarkable that you’ve got the president of the USA amplifying the tweets of a far-right activist, amplifying a racist tweet. “That’s one of my concerns about Donald Trump – he’s now seen as a poster boy for racists around the world, whether you’re a racist in this country, whether you’re a racist in Hungary, a racist in Italy, or a racist in France.”

    The original post by Ms Hopkins called the capital “Stab-City”, alongside screenshots of BBC News articles detailing the violence. But a number of people pointed out the much higher homicide rates in US cities.”

  25. I use beets in my pickled eggs as well!

    //I told you, London is becoming like Jo’Burg. I was right.//

    Facts really not your strong point, are they a Pete?
    Now verbal diarrhoea, you could win a gold medal at that.

  27. Is Utah Joburg also?

  28. I’ve never tasted sauerkraut. I see jars of it in the supermarkets and I often think “must buy one of those…maybe next time” but I’ve never got round to it.
    Oh yeah, Londonistan: I’d say, wall it up. Give any remaining Englishmen (there can’t be many left at this stage; I know I’d certainly have fled by now, hence why it’s “remain” territory) a chance to get out first, then just brick it up, and make it compulsary to carry a knife or better still a gun, for those that remain. Wait 30 years, and maybe we can claim it back again.

  29. I love sauerkraut. I first tasted it in Poland so I was late coming to it.
    That used to mix it with Polish sausage, and fill a large, hollowed out bread roll with It.

  30. “He is putting himself in a pissing match with some mayor.
    No other president would do this.”

    Trump is not like any other President. Is that necessarily a bad thing? All politicians lie and obfuscate, Trump just does it differently.

  31. Trump is not like any other President. Is that necessarily a bad thing?

    Yes, in his case emphatically yes. He may blunder into a war with Iran through sheer laziness because he cannot be bothered to read the briefings.

    All politicians lie and obfuscate, Trump just does it differently.

    Trump does it on an industrial scale which has not been seen before in US politics. We are talking orders of magnitude worse than Richard Nixon.
