Apparently the government, or more specifically Jacqui Smith, believes that showing people who are caught with knives what happens to knife victims will help lower knife crime.
I love thinking like that: taking a terrified; badly injured victim still undergoing treatment and shove them in front of someone about whom they know nothing except that they carry the same weapon that injured them.
It’s a terribly clever idea. Think about it:
– A & E waiting times will be reduced as people generally don’t want to be within thirty feet of a hoodie.
– Stab victims will be in a hurry to get out before the show and tell begins, ergo more beds.
– Afraid of going to hospital, for the fear of seeing knife wielding psychos, stab victims will stay away and bleed over their own home instead of A & E thus reducing cleaning costs.
This is the kind of thinking that made Britain great. Good job Jacqui.
