Evidence of why this focus on "knife" crime is a joke.

I think this demonstrates the farce of focusing on the tool, rather than the crime nicely.

So you have banned guns, so the thugs move on to blades. You ban blades, so the thugs move on to bottles or sticks. You ban then, so they have snooker balls in socks.

End of the day, if a thug wants to hurt someone, they can do it with many tools. They will either just ignore the ban anyway, or create a new one that isn't banned.

The only people who will get hassled and punished are the innocent, who were just trying to go about their daily business.

Then combine all these dumb laws that are now coming out, with the "Little Hitler" syndrome, that a lot of these plastic policeman seem to have in particular and you have a recipe for disaster.

Honestly. When are we going to get someone in power who has half a brain? Someone who will focus on WHY people are willing to seriously hurt each other. Someone who will make the punishment for real crime harsh and a deterrent, but leave the rest of us the hell alone!
