London Mayor Continues to Outdo Himself with Stupid Bans

Sadiq Khan. If you don’t instantly recognize this name, it’s time to learn. This is the mayor of London, and his antics are always good for a laugh — provided you don’t actually live in London. He’s really put his mark on 2018 with a string of the stupidest bans the world has yet seen. While we encourage you to laugh at each and every one of these ridiculous endeavors, remember that the American left praises this man.

The Knife Ban

You surely remember this. Seeing as how we’ve ridiculed it so profusely, it would be hard to forget. Still, we should recap how London got to this point. In April, it became apparent that London homicide had outpaced New York City homicide for the first time in modern history. This is despite the fact that London has extensive gun control and gun bans. New York, while wildly liberal, is still protected by the 2nd Amendment.

To the credit of British rule and the argument for gun control, London’s murder problem wasn’t driven by firearms. It was (and still is) driven by knives. As we’ve always said, criminals will find a way to be criminals. You don’t defeat them by disarming citizens. London proved that in bold fashion. So, the natural response to the issue was Sadiq Khan’s brilliant plan to institute aggressive knife control.

We get that the British don’t care about personal rights and freedoms. If they did, there would never have been a need to create America in the first place. That still in no way excuses the extreme stupidity that has been Khan’s knife control. He didn’t go after excessive weapons like daggers and combat knives. He didn’t just attack citizen’s rights to have tooled blades (you know, for cutting things other than people).

He actually went after kitchen knives. That’s not a joke. It’s not an exaggeration. The London government actually went forward with a plan to blunt kitchen knives. They also created a knife disposal program where Londoners could safely dispose of their dangerous cooking and eating utensils.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Khan is the man who famously said, “There is never a reason to carry a knife.” Maybe they don’t have steak in London. That would explain a lot.

Swimming Pool Ban

Unfortunately, the knife ban was probably the most rational of all the bans to come from London’s genius mayor. This story is much less well known, but a few months ago, residents of a London neighborhood were forced by law enforcement to dismantle their above-ground pool. It’s a little sad. The neighbors banded together to raise the money to build the community pool. Just as it went up, the London bureaucrats squashed the dream of kids having fun in the summer.

You might be wondering what weird zoning regulation made them abandon their pool. Was it a biological hazard? Did London ban chlorine so the pool couldn’t be kept clean? We wouldn’t put any of that past them, but the actual reasoning is much worse. Officials forced the destruction of a swimming pool because IT POSED A DROWNING RISK TO CRIMINALS.

They weren’t worried about unwatched kids or even drunk homeless people drowning. They literally destroyed a swimming pool to protect potential burglars. Congratulations Mayor Khan. You can make even the most pious of people want to scream profanity at your stupid face.

Traffic Ban

But, we’re not done yet. The swimming pool ban still wasn’t his stupidest idea. That title goes to the Parliament Square traffic ban. The rationale for this is almost understandable. Terrorists have recently realized that motor vehicles are the most accessible tool for mass murdering innocents. It’s been a problem everywhere, but it’s especially bad in Europe. And, to Khan’s credit, he hasn’t yet tried to ban car ownership from his people. Instead, he’s just going to ban traffic. That’s sure to work.

The idea of pedestrian malls is nothing new. Pretty much every major city in the U.S. has them. But, trying to turn Parliament Square into one is just plain stupid. It’s a major thoroughfare in London. It would be like banning cars from I-10 in L.A.

Clearly, Khan is incapable of learning the obvious lesson. The best way to stop crime is not to infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens. Instead, you could empower your citizens to defend themselves. You might also find success by increasing your immigration vetting. That was a big motivation for Brexit in the first place. Then again, it’s foolhardy of us to expect liberals to ever learn from their mistakes. After all, socialism is still somehow a thing in this world.

  1. Allan Cloutier says

    Get rid of that ,mooslim mayor.

    1. jeannie says

      He is banning all types of anything tht could be used as weapons. Do you honestly think that the muslims in London will obey? Hell no…They are just waiting until they can take over the whole city. And they have started by electing this mayor…Watch out Royal Family. You are in their sites. You will be history and that muslim mayor will be living n Buckingham Palace

      1. Sgt York says

        Dang you beat me. These bans are just for the Brits as Muslims do not pay any attention to them as knives,guns,auto traffic and swimming pools are not anything they care about as these aren’t in the Quran,except knives, He is pulling the black close of Islam over the Brits eyes and they are gobbling it up only to be either converted,and that leads to a death penalty,or Death for not being Muslim but they are Christians. Brits you Must wake up or see your whole country go up in Muslim smoke.

    2. Chuck says

      No need for any of this, kick all of the Damned Muslims out England. Problem solved!

    3. OLD VET says

      you can not trust this mayor when are they going to wake up . you can not trust a muslim .they care not about you only the muslim law . they are liars and trash they are unwashed .the filth of the earth .OLD VET

    4. Gazza says

      In Australia we have banned guns. No mass shootings since. Kids go to school and come home. Guns have no conscience or choice; they are controlled by people. Give someone a stone and he’ll throw it. Give them a gun and they’ll shoot! That’s why gun owners are closely scrutinised here. You need a licence to drive but a child can buy a gun in the U.S.. Go figure.
      The bigger the gun, the smaller the dick, but you guys just don’t get it, do you!
      Dumbest and most paranoid, delusional country on earth.

  2. William R Thompson Jr says

    It’s impossible to say what percentage of Muslims are terrorists, because the media does it’s best to protect them, by distorting the figures to perpetuate the “religion of peace” myth. The only thing we can do is look at the reports that do get published, of terrorist attacks by Muslims. It’s easy to declare bans on things, like guns and knives, but terrorists continue to use them, because bans, like gun control laws, only work on the law abiding. It’s harder to ban people, like Muslims, especially when we elect leaders like Khan. If anyone knows who’s really to blame, it’s him, but he’s going to protect Muslims, before British people in their homeland, because he knows Muslims are there to conquer Britain. Until the British take their fates into their own hands, they are losing their homeland, one death at a time.

    1. Bill says

      A Muslim Professor stated that it’s estimated that it’s 24% of the Muslim population are Islamic Radicals. He stated that he doesn’t blame people for being Islamophobic. Also mentioned that there is no way of knowing what population of Islamics are in any location. For instance London is probably could be 40% to concentrate there efforts to take control same in other Countries. As far as that Muslim Mayor goes that was one of London’s biggest screw up. As far as you know he is probably an Islamic and these insane laws prove that he is in support of the Islamic Radicals take over for a Muslim rule them implement total Sheria Law. Political Correctness was implemented to allow all of this to happen. It all started off letting the Muslim population to take over because people were so concerned about not offending them. The speech that was given to the Muslim population forty years ago was for them to do what ever it takes to fool the people and Allah will overlook that for the bigger picture. There leader also stated to them that at the time Allah calls for all Muslims to rise all will rise and those who don’t will die for turning their backs on Allah. When that rising comes all of those who deny Allah will die. As you can see in Europe the Muslims are taking over anyway they can. When Allah’s call goes out there will be death around the world you would never imagine. As you know they have no problem dieing for Allah.

    2. jeannie says

      They are all loyal to allah that makes them terrorists

  3. David German says

    Here is an idea or two: The Mayor of London could impose a ban of Cell phones, because a phone is a mean of communication among thieves and criminals. Also place cages in every neighborhood and place Londoners in them, that way they won’t be able to steal or murder anyone ( except the ones that are inside the cage). That is probably the plan of the New World Order anyway!

    1. Texas001 says

      Who fault is it? Just like in the USA the government for years and years let illegals come in from Mexico and now we are just starting to fight back and stop them but the damage has been done. Just this week it was determined that and illegal killed a young American college student. All of Europe was big on letting millions of so called refugees come into their countries and as it turned out these refugees are those committing crimes and murders. London is even worse but allowing a muslim to be elected mayor.

  4. Bill says

    How can anyone exist when they have blood circulation to the brain? There is just so much proof that the libturds are totally dead from the neck….up. I suppose that this kind of information cannot be made up, it has to be true. The brits have that hammerhead to contend with and we have several that should be FIRED by the people. What the sam hill is going on this world??????????

  5. Gerry says

    Seems to me the smart thing would be to ban this muslin dirtbag from the UK and elect or appoint(whatever you do over there anymore) a Brit who cares about your country and who would stop the flood of muslim scum from taking over your country.

  6. Emilio Sosa says


  7. Merlin Wood says

    he is one of the enemy, stop covering it up

  8. CaptTurbo says

    We need a ban on Muslim politicians in Western countries. They are not compatible.

  9. Mott says

    It’s NOT the tool but the FOOL using the tool! They all seam to think getting rid of the tool will stop it, Next step it to ban ROCKS!

  10. JonsOn says

    If this mayor is that stupid how smart are the dipsticks that voted for him?

  11. BILL FISCHER says


  12. Frank Vazquez says

    This guy deserves no respect from anyone. He’s a stupid moron and is not doing his job. He doesn’t care about the people and is delivering false security by restricting and banning everything they want or need and the fact that he shows more concern for criminals makes him a traitor.

    Throw the bum out and save yourselves from his subversive agendas.

  13. David Andrews says

    This muslim will soon decree that all fingers or hands must be amputated because they could be turned into fists and may be used by a victim to protect themselves and hurt a criminal going about their illegal activity! WAKE UP Britain and London!!!! You are being led by a traitorous idiot!!!

  14. Paul Hillar says

    First, lets call them what they are, “subjects” NOT citizens! Do you really think they eat steak,… with those teeth? Dentists in England, LOL, Pleeease! As was stated, they don’t like freedom, they like being told what to do and when to do it, citizens have freedom, subjects don’t! That’s what you get for letting a middle easterner run your country. Couldn’t you find a natural born countryman to run? Well you’ve done it to yourselves so have fun trying to get your country back, rats breed, and now you got to call an exterminator!

  15. Wizzid0 says

    He didn’t ban the one thing that could be effective, Muslims! He could start with himself, [to applause from the citizenry.]

    Look at the US some States it is illegal to collect rainwater. Others have passed bills no aerial spraying, climate control over their State. Others say if there’s fluoride in bottled water it must say so, because it causes lower IQ in babies. Also people get vaccinated and their children with vaccines that contain mercury, but they don’t put mercury in paint or teeth anymore. What about all the cancer cures, there here. Chemo or radiation is not a cure. I have made a lot of people made, or woke some up.
