A Tory MP said knives should be fitted with GPS to cut crime and these glorious takedowns got straight to the point

Sensible, no-nonsense solutions from one of the rising stars of the modern Conservative movement. https://t.co/Hs1p6wO3uA

"Madam we can see on our KNIFETRACKER™ that you have a knife and ARE NOT fishing at all"
"How did you get in my kitchen"
"We'll be asking the questions here"
"I'm making a sandwich"
"So you're NOT fishing. Arrest this thug" https://t.co/5mjtyjUQj9

New campaign just launched “MPs to take IQ test before selection”.

I don’t think the main problem with stabbings is not knowing where the knife is.

So many questions, so little time.
– Which retailers are selling machetes?
– Who is paying for the GPS devices on my butter knives?
– How do you propose to stop criminals removing the GPS devices from their knives?
– How do you justify your salary of £79,468?

Fwiw I quite like it when MPs come out with mad policy ideas they’ve clearly just imagined up 10 minutes ago https://t.co/81BEeKIy9Z

Weirdly this would sort-of-work, because knives would cost about £500-a-piece, at a minimum.
Unless…unless some sort of black market in knives *without* hugely expensive trackers emerged. But surely it wouldn’t, right? https://t.co/YZ4hQ2Ea4L

Better idea: A police helicopter to follow every knife. https://t.co/4KHoT6jyis

To conclude …
I thought this was a surrealist comedian, it’s actually a Conservative MP https://t.co/Tuty9poli8
