A few days back, US President Trump had the temerity to describe a London hospital as a ‘war zone’ because of knife crime.
Speaking at a pro-gun rally, the US president claimed that knife crime in London is so bad that one unnamed hospital in the capital is ‘like a war zone for horrible stabbing wounds’ with ‘blood all over the floors’.
Naturally he was damned for saying this. There was outrage that such an atrocious comment could be made.
I can only wonder at his source? Oh, hang on…
Dr. Mark Griffiths, the lead surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, said that knife and gun wounds had moved from a “niche” part of his job to a daily chunk of his workload, and a growing number of victims were “children”.“Some of my military colleagues have described their practice here as similar to being at [Camp] Bastion,” Dr Griffiths told the Today programme on BBC Radio 4.
Whoops. And just in case anyone doubted the accuracy of Trump’s comments. here’s some more details.
Of course at LEAST the Brits can take quite satisfaction from the fact that, yes, although knife crime is soaring. thank goodness we have BANNED guns.
London, regretfully, is indeed morphing into a third world sh*thole.
In London, they SHOOT 13 year olds and the political class bleat that Trump is the problem.
