London murders down

Today's news is that murders in London during 2010 were not only down on the year before, but the lowest they have been for about a third of a century - specifically, since 1978. One reason for this that has been put forward is the removal of weapons such as knives from the streets, making it more difficult to commit violence in general.

This is all good news, and shows we are on the path toward getting our communities back from gangs and other criminals, as well as reducing the tendency toward domestic violence. There's still a very long way to go, but we are now heading in the right direction after years of going the wrong way - something that could never have happened under a Labour of similarly lefty government and London mayor.
