Sadiq Khan blasted for saying he wants to invest in British rappers, not crime victims

Dave and Stormzy are high profile British rappers that both claimed prestigious prizes at the BRIT Awards 2020. The London Mayor clashed with Conservative London Assembly member Susan Hall following his comments. Ms Hall unleashed a scathing attack on Mr Khan’s record on knife crime and labelled it “an absolute disgrace” leaving him visibly stunned. 

Mr Khan said: “I’d rather invest in future Daves and Stormzys than future victims of crime.”

Ms Hall replied: “If you think putting money into like Dave is a good idea then well done you but you are not spending the correct money in sporting out the crime on our streets.

“If you were we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in now.

“As it is we’ve got youngsters out there being murdered all the time on our streets.

“We’ve got knife crime out of control and you talk to me about Dave and Stormzy.

“It’s an absolute disgrace Mr Mayor.”

Earlier this month Mr Khan was brutally slammed by Ms Hall for “blaming others” for the failures in tackling crime in London.

Ms Hall said: “All you do Mr Mayor is blame the Government for everything.

“You have an £18billion budget!

“You could have put money into any of these areas earlier but you spend all your time criticising others.

“My simple point and I’ll leave it there is the fact that you know that crime has been really bad for the last four years.

“You have not diverted your considerable budget towards it.

“All you are happy to do is blame others.”

Sadiq Khan has been Mayor of London since 2016 and will have to fight to secure another four-year term in the London mayoral elections in May this year.
