Worry new figures have been revealed by the Conservatives that knife killing has trebled in Lancashire in the last year.  Going from 4 to 13.  I find this disturbing and very worrying.  The figures also show that nationally last year was the highest incidents of knife death since records began.  And what is the New Labour Government’s response?  Tougher community sentences, yeah that’s what I thought.  At a time when more people than ever are being killed by knives, the party that said it would be ‘tough on crime and tough on the causes of crime’ are showing how tough they are by handing out community orders to those who are caught carrying a knife.  It beggars belief and it’s time for a change.
