Sadiq Khan has been slammed for “doing next to nothing” to stop crime in London after a pensioner was stabbed to death.

Thomas O’Halloran, 87, was riding his mobility scooter in Greenford, west London when the incident took place earlier this week.

Speaking after the incident, former Conservative Leader Iain Duncan Smith has hit out at the London Mayor for “doing next to nothing apart from putting out statements.”

He said: “London is inundated with crime at the moment and – apart from putting out statements – Sadiq Khan has done next to nothing on this.

“We have gang warfare on the streets of London in some boroughs, yet Mr Khan’s priorities seem to be elsewhere.

“He needs to make this his number one priority and focus on getting rid of these gangs. Many constituents cannot see the point in him,” as quoted by the Mail On Sunday.

While Nigel Farage has told Mr Khan that he has his “priorities all wrong”.

Speaking on GB News’ Farage, Nigel said: He told GB News: "London has been hit with six murders in the space of the last four days, including Thomas O'Halloran, 87-years-old.

"This is almost beyond belief. What on earth could motivate anybody to put a knife in someone like that.

"And yet Mayor Khan appears to have other priorities.

"As much of London must become a maximum 20mph with speed cameras everywhere.

"The ULEZ zone is extending pretty much out to the M25 hitting the poor, the elderly, those who can't afford new cars.

"I would suggest the Mayor of London has his priorities completely and utterly wrong."
