A woman was arrested in central London Tuesday evening after the “blimp” designed to mock President Donald Trump was stabbed with what may have been a small pair of cosmetic scissors.
The effigy of President Trump, who has repeatedly warned of rising crime levels in London and in particular stabbings, was deflated Tuesday after it had been flown at an anti-American protest in central London.
The Daily Mail reports the attack, possibly launched with a small pair of nail scissors which were later recovered by police, was allegedly carried out by a pro-Trump individual who shouted that the caricature of the President was “a disgrace”.
Police confirmed the arrest of a woman for possession of a pointed article Tuesday.
The incident takes on an acute irony after the war of words between the real-life President Trump and London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan over London’s surge of knife crime.
While the local politician has made much political hay out of grandstanding against the leader of the free world, President Trump himself has frequently pointed to Khan’s poor record on crime in London, and suggested that rather than trying to build his profile by virtue signalling he could work to tackle the knife crimewave impacting the daily lives of Londoners.
Breitbart London reported Monday on President Trump’s written remarks on Khan, Tweeted as Air Force One prepared to touch down in London. Responding to Mayor Khan’s insistence that allowing President Trump to visit the United Kingdom was un-British, he wrote: “[Khan] is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me.”
A report on Khan’s first three years in office released last week included statistics that knife crime has risen by 52 per cent, robbery by 59 per cent, and gun crime by 30 per cent. Homicide has risen by 24 per cent and is now at the highest level in over a decade in the city.
Meanwhile Corbyn refuses to join the state banquet and prefers instead... to share a platform with Anas Altikriti, who advocates killing British troops.
Anas Altikriti spoke alongside Jeremy Corbyn at the protest in Westminster against Trump’s State Visit was, had previously supported Iraqis using “any means and methods” to expel the UK-US “occupation”. He told Islam Online that “struggle of the Iraqi people, militarily and politically must continue until the occupier leaves and a true patriotic and democratic government is elected.” He later said that “Legitimate resistance against occupation is patriotic.” Emily Thornberry also stood on the same platform the man who called for “any means and methods” to be used against British soldiers…
After speaking at the same event Altikriti, Corbyn is off to campaign this evening for Labour’s Peterborough candidate, who said she “enjoyed reading” comments under a post that claimed ISIS was created by Mossad, and was active in an anti-Israel hate group. Unsurprisingly Jewish groups are not happy. In an unprecedented joint statement they called on the Labour Party to disown Lisa Forbes
Corbyn prefers to hang around with anti-Semites than go to dinner with the leader of the free world…
