THE BLOOMBERG SYNDROME HITS LONDON: Sadiq Khan goes to war on junk food. What about knife crime?

In 2011, Victor Davis Hanson warned of “The Bloomberg Syndrome:” “Quite simply, the next time your elected local or state official holds a press conference about global warming, the Middle East, or the national political climate, expect to experience poor county law enforcement, bad municipal services, or regional insolvency.”

And of course, “Right on cue! Michael Bloomberg cheers London mayor’s retaliation against imminent threat…Bloomberg stood up and applauded Khan’s effort to target forks and spoons after having already banned knives.”
