Not that the British sheeple aren’t marching willingly into a disarmed subjugation, but London Mayor Sadiq Kahn was recently caught putting his thumb on the scales. As a part of his ineffectual anti-knife campaign, he was reaching out to celebrities to tweet support for the endeavor. I do not know whether he was not getting enough actual support, but several of his “endorsements” were found to be fabricated, and needed to be removed.
From Daily Mail UK:
The Mayor of London’s office has been forced to remove promotional material for its anti-knives campaign after it was discovered celebrity endorsements supporting the drive had been faked.
Star Wars actor John Boyega, grime artist Lethal Bizzle and singer Jessie J were among those who featured in the information pack apparently endorsing the London Needs You Alive scheme, launched by Sadiq Khan in November last year.
But it has since emerged that the entertainers were not consulted about their involvement, and that the social media posts featured – including content from Twitter and Instagram – were fake.
Khan has been under fire for his impotence in the face of rampant violent crime in his city. People are being stabbed all over the place, but there are acid attacks, vehicular assaults, and more. The perps aren’t choosy.
Sometimes it is the work of gangs on mopeds…
But the authorities continue to focus on meaningless cosmetic differences, like the evil “zombie knives”…
They just don’t get it.
