Middle class cocaine users blamed for London stabbings

Since the beginning of the year, at least 37 people have been stabbed to death amid more than 60 killed murders in London.

“People who do that have to recognise they are fuelling the industry that’s resulting in the knife crimes, resulting in the difficulties we’re having in prisons,” Mr Gauke told Sky’s Ridge on Sunday.

Justice Secretary David Gauke believe middle class drug users should feel a degree of guilt and responsibility for the knife deaths across London

He said “There’s a responsibility for middle class people that take cocaine at dinner parties that when there is news of stabbings they should feel a degree of guilt.”

Police Federation deputy treasurer Simon Kempton has also blamed the wealthy for creating the demand for cocaine, while security minister Ben Wallace warned the UK is “fast becoming the biggest consumer” of the Class A in Europe.
