Britain’s most senior police officer believes middle-class recreational drug users have “blood on their hands” over the recent spate of violent knife related deaths.
Concurring with Good Morning Britain’s anchor-man Piers Morgan, Britain’s top police officer, Cressida Dick highlighted the link between drug users and the knife-crime epidemic sweeping the nation.
While the Prime Minister provoked fury when she claimed there ‘was no direct correlation between certain crimes and police numbers’, the Metropolitan Police chief, contradicted her, saying there is ‘obviously’ a link between dwindling numbers of officers and the plague of teenage knife deaths.
She wouldn’t rule out falling back on the Army if needs be.
Speaking on LBC radio, Cressida Dick said “I think that what we all agree on is that, in the last few years, police officer numbers have gone down a lot, there’s been a lot of other cuts in public services, there has been more demand for policing and therefore there must be something, and I have consistently said that.”
“I agree that there is some link between violent crime on the streets obviously and police numbers, of course there is and everybody would see that.”
‘Politicians have blood on their hands’
As the Daily Mail newspaper headline screamed in 2013:
Corridors of powder: Drug scandal at the Houses of Parliament after traces of cocaine are found on toilets across Palace of Westminster
With an explosion of cocaine use now evident across the country, including London’s green and leafy suburbs; politicians are coming under fire for their part they are playing in the knife crime deaths.
Evidence of cocaine use has been found inside toilets at the Houses of Parliament, including some just yards from MPs’ offices.
Traces of cocaine were found in nine toilets throughout the Palace Of Westminster, the meeting place of the UK’s political elite.
The powder was detected in toilets used by guests at Parliament’s bars, as well as cubicles a few yards away from MPs’ offices – areas where members of the public are restricted from going.
