The lethal "zombie" knife Joshua Gardner smashed against the window of a passing car had only one use - killing. And the dash-cam video of last May's incident in south London left no question about the teenager's intent - to do harm.
The Conservative party candidate for London's 2020 Mayoral election, Shaun Bailey, said that the Asian community is an example he looks up to, denying his intention to 'attack' the community or Britain's multiculturalism.
When ask why I want to be Mayor of London, I usually reel off the things I want to do to make London a better place. After all, there can be no doubt we need more homes, a better transport system, cleaner air, and a more effective approach on crime.
Yes, the retail bit of campaigning is important, but it’s only part of the job of winning the 2020 London Mayoral election. A lot of my effort over the coming months will be dedicated to my day job of holding Sadiq Khan to account at the London Assembly.
Sadiq Khan has - inexcusably - waited too long to crack down on London's record levels of violent crime. He has, for months now, ignored my costed plans to cut waste at City Hall in order to fund more frontline police and detectives.
