Brexiteer Darren Grimes is well known for making outlandish statements on Twitter, but he may have succeeded even himself on this occasion.

In a tweet on Sunday evening, Grimes claimed that 'some bloke on a bike had just tried to take his bag in London' and then proceeded to blame mayor Sadiq Kahn for the incident, as he was too preoccupied with 'virtue signaling over Donald Trump and Brexit' to actually manage crime in the capital.
