Alex Beresford jibes Boris Johnson and Priti Patel after crime crackdown plan announced

He went on to add that tackling the “family” was the first place to start in reducing knife crime, which would help to shift the “mindset” and bring the community “back together.”

Announcing the new plans, the Prime Minister said: “When I first stood on the steps of Downing Street, I promised to back the police and make people safer, because we cannot level up the country when crime hits the poorest hardest and draws the most vulnerable into violence.

“That is why my government has remained unstinting in its efforts to protect the British public and this plan delivers a fresh commitment, as we emerge from the impacts of the pandemic, to have less crime, fewer victims and a safer society.”

Home secretary Priti Patel also applauded the Beating Crime Plan and the “new powers” it equips officers with.
