This The Sun article is absolutely absurd. Found via Fark, an frighteningly high number of Farkers are in complete agreement with my reaction: When did Britain lose its nerve?

The relevant quotes here, of course, are:

Home Office Minister Vernon Coaker launched the amnesty in St John’s Wood, North West London. He said: “We are determined to get the scourge of knife crime off our streets.”

“Knife crime will only get worse if we don’t introduce a five-year mandatory sentence for anyone carrying a knife.”
