surely seeing '#knifefree' on a takeout chicken box is enough to deter all but the most bloodthirsty stabbing thugs.

The British government has been mocked and criticized for putting advertisements meant to discourage knife crime on boxes of takeout fried chicken, according to multiple reports.

The United Kingdom’s Home Office tweeted Wednesday: “We are rolling out our #KnifeFree chicken boxes in over 210 chicken shops in England and Wales, including Morley’s, Dixy Chicken and Chicken Cottage. They use real life stories to show people how they can go #KnifeFree.”

England once showed us, a few hundred years ago, why we should not subject ourselves to rash, totalitarian government.

We took them up on it.

Now I appreciate their repeated attempts to remind us of it.

TBF - you don't need a knife to eat fred chicken.

No doubt some idiotic Home Office Civil Servants idea.

To make matters worse someone was stabbed outside the Home Office building earlier today.

Although to be fair to new PM Boris Johnson he has started recruiting 20,000 extra police, has announced 10,000 extra prison places and is increasing stop and search powers, so he already has done a lot in a very short period of time, and it should be noted that London was a lot less violent when Boris was in charge as Mayor when compared to Labour's Sadiq Khan.
