Quote of the Day

"I suspect there are hardly any children in Islington who have not been mugged at some stage" - Emily Thornberry, Labour MP for Islinington South and Finsbury.

What a ringing endorsement of her own party's success at dealing with violent crime. Perhaps she'll get a promotion to the Home Office for her candid honesty. Then again maybe not.

Yes they might have been mugged but will it be recorded as such by our NuLabor PC police force?

Good point barnacle bill, who reports ordinary muggings any more when you know the Police won't do anything about it?
