The National:

The UK really is in trouble when towering intellects like this Tory MP are in charge of the country.

The Member of Parliament for Cornwall, Scott Mann, was ripped to shreds online after he suggested that "every knife sold in the UK should have a GPS tracker fitted in the handle".

Where to even start with this?

There are over 66 million people living in the UK. If each one of them had even just one knife each, the cops would still be responsible for tracking an impossible amount of information.

Only a Tory could look at the data correlating knife crime with living in poverty and think that spending an inordinate amount of cash on tracking literally MILLIONS of knives is the best way to tackle the problem.

Anyway, dear readers, the Jouker is pleased to reveal that Scott Mann is currently being ratioed into oblivion on Twitter for his bizarre suggestion.

Last we checked he'd had 350 retweets and over 3,400 responses...
