The UK armed forces “stand ready” to intervene in the knife crime epidemic, the defence secretary has said.
Gavin Williamson said military personnel “would always be ready to respond” to calls for help while the Ministry of Defence “always stands ready to help any government department”.
No request has yet been made, Mr Williamson said during a question-and-answer session on Tuesday night.
He added: “I know that the home secretary is looking very closely at how he can ensure that everything is done to tackle this problem at the moment.”
Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police commissioner, had said she would be willing to bring in troops to support her officers as they battle a spate of stabbings.
And I had noticed that England is mentioned less and less on the Gun Control scripts. It is rather embarrassing that the promise of a Violence-Free United Kingdom not only has not been realized but just the opposite is happening.
An I guess the Knife Control initiative ended up being represented by the picture below.
At least they are safe from the evil assault whisks.
