out of London

Just as the County Lines gangs have moved so much of their business out of London, politicians demand that more politics and business should be moved out of London too.

Obviously there cannot be a connection between the drugs business and the politics just as the deployment of soldiers into Afghanistan and the smuggling of Opium from Afghanistan are not connected.

County Lines gangs were always quite ahead, quick thinking and using latest technologies and exploited the situation.

They used

  • fake number plates and bogus car rentals companies
  • burner phones
  • bikes to move drugs before the national on our bike strategy came upon us
  • deployed expelled students in their drug trade

I think that the National Crime Agency must be sleeping with their eyes wide open.

When I sat on a local stop and search panel, I quite clearly pointed out that the statistics relating to drug dealing also related to stop and search results.

Overall the panel was dissolved, knife crime shot up and here we are. A big mess.
