In the aftermath of the horrific terror attack in London, England on Saturday night, questions regarding why the perpetrators weren’t arrested before attack, and how these sorts of attacks can be prevented in the future are rightly being raised by citizens across the U.K.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan appeared on “Good Morning Britain,” with hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan on Tuesday to speak about terrorism in Great Britain. As noted by Young Conservatives, Morgan utterly destroyed Khan with his pointed questions.
One question in particular revealed just how ignorant Khan is. “Where are the potential terrorists in England?” Morgan asked.

The question came after Khan admitted that of the roughly 400 jihadists who have returned from Syria and Iraq (that the government knows about), “just over half” of them are in London — a truly jaw-dropping number.
Morgan pressed Khan on this point, demanding to know why the police are not tracking these potential terrorists.
“Why can’t you instruct the police, why can’t you call (Metropolitan Police Chief) Cressida Dick right now, and say every one of those people that’s come back from a war zone, who’s in London, I want them followed?” Morgan asked Khan.
Khan avoided answering the question directly, throwing out excuses about budget cuts and how he can’t control what the police do. [VIDEO ON NEXT PAGE]
