Jacqui Smith intends to confront violent criminals (people who carry knives) with victims of stabbings.

She rejected demands that anybody caught carrying a knife should go to prison.

She said: "We know that tough community sentences including community payback, supervision and electronically monitored curfews are more likely to stop them carrying knives in future."

These 'tough' community punishments haven't driven the thugs off the streets. It's driven them to carry and use knives because they don't fear the consequences.

Politicians will introduce real penalties when knife-wielding thugs start hanging around Eton and Harrow, threatening and stabbing their children and the children of the people who fund them.
