Lilly and Boris do their bit for the camera’s…….

Lilly Allen met with London Mayor Boris Johnson to discuss the capital’s knife crime epidemic.

The singer wrote an appeal for an end to the spate of incidents on her internet blog.

The LDN star wrote: “Please can everyone stop stabbing each other in the UK?

“We need to have a knife amnesty. We should put on a big concert to raise awareness.”

“Boris, if you’re listening, call me man.”

And sure enough, Mr Johnson called and the pair spent 45 minutes talking about ideas to combat the problem.

Mr Johnson said after the City Hall meeting: “Lily Allen has already proved her commitment to help address this problem.

“There is nothing romantic or glamorous about knife crime and I’m delighted Lily will be using her considerable profile and fan base to spread that message.” (Source)

I read this news on my way home from work this evening, and it made my blood boil.

So over-rated pop star Lilly Allen advises government figures on knife crime now does she?

She posts a blog on her Myspace page stating that, “We need to have a knife amnesty. We should put on a big concert to raise awareness” (like that’s going to make a difference), and because of that our darling mayor of London, Boris Johnson, grants her a 45 minute meeting discussing ways in which to solve the problem.

ARE YOU SERIOUS BORIS??????????????? Teenagers are being stabbed to death up and down the country and instead of addressing this dire situation with community leaders, with family members who have been affected by knife crime, and with key government ministers you sit down and waste valuable minutes talking to jumped up pop star LILY ALLEN?

Do you think the teens who currently run the streets bladed up, are going to listen to “yeah I pretend to be down with the streets” mockney Allen? 

If UK acts like Ty, Kano, Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Klashnekoff or Estelle posted the same blog on their sites, do you think that Mayor Boris Johnson would grant them a 45 minutes to discuss knife crime?  Do you think that he would take the time out to listen to their views and concerns? 

I THINK NOT! They would be lucky if they got 5 seconds with that clown!

This meeting of the “minds” was all done in the name of publicity. Nothing more, nothing less!

  1. this just goes to show the level of real attetion they are paying to this issue!!!
    pure pr movess going on just like amy doing the nelson mandela!!!

  2. Lilly Allen makes me laugh. Bless her, what does she know about knife crime. How many times has there been a knife amnesty !!! IT DOESN’T WORK…

    A concert to raise awareness,… for who !!! people are already AWARE and frustrated !!! I know she is trying to help in her little Nobu/Ivy world, but this problem is much much bigger than an amnesty/concert.

    The kids are of a different ilk these days, they do not give a flying f–k, about these celebrities and they will not be listening to jack shit that Boris/Allen has to say.

    Tougher sentences/laws for knife carriers/users. More deterents. Scare the mother f-ckers out of their skin.

    If it was up to me, anyone caught using a knife would have a hot grill stamped on their forehead saying LOSER !!! What do you say Boris lol !!!

  3. @ Ty, yep re Amy and Mandela.

    I only found out the other day that at the andela concert, she was singing freeee my Blakey, when she was suposed to be singing Freee Nelson Mandela.

    Who the hell put that mess in front of Madiba, the Godfather of Africa.
    TRAGIC I!!

  4. I think that just shows what they really think of mandela, and on this Lilly Allen thing, boi, we done know they about to do nothing to stop knife crime, gun crime, drug dealing, gang culture… It’s upto us imo to do what we can, bit by bit!
