Once again I tune into the news to hear of the fatal stabbing of a young man in South East London. 18 year old Rob Knox was been stabbed to death and two other teenagers were injured during a fight outside a bar in Sidcup. This comes just weeks after the senseless killing of Jimmy Mizen in Lee.
Like Jimmy, Rob Knox seemed to be a good kid just getting on with life. I am not going to speculate about the details of this, and as a member of the MPA I will now be working closely with the local police to try to stop tragedies like this happening again.
Once again I find myself sending my sympathies to the friends and family of a talented and much loved young man.
