Origo vs Khan - October MMH

Origo is a Hungarian pro government news site, and on the 24th October published an article which blamed London Mayor Sadiq Khan for the rising knife crime in the city and referred to him being a ‘Muslim’ in the title. While knife crime had risen to a record high in England and Wales, there was little overall change in the number of total offences involving a knife or sharp instrument in London in the last year (Office of National Statistics). Even if these statistics showed different results, there is no relation between Sadiq Khan being the son of Pakistan-born parents and his performance as a mayor, let alone the way he addresses knife crime in London.
