Knife Crime

In a speech  at Luton Crown Court, I expressed some thoughts about knife crime.

One way of reducing the horrifying number of serious injuries and, indeed, deaths caused by knife attacks might be to round off the ends of long kitchen knives.  It is the points of long kitchen knives which enter vital organs and sever arteries, not the blades.  How often do we use the points of 8 or 10 inch knives in the kitchen?

These are my current thoughts on knife crime.
