Except 'Eastenders', 'Coronation Street' and 'Emmerdale' have *all* addressed knife crime in the last two years, you goose. 'Eastenders' even invited the victims of knife crime on to speak about their concerns.

Here's an article about the 'Eastenders' special.  https://closeronline.co.uk/entertainment/soaps/eastenders-first-ever-true-life-episode-knife-crime/ 

'Emmerdale' had a knife crime storyline back in *2017*, as teenagers terrorised the village.  https://www.express.co.uk/showbiz/tv-radio/799403/Emmerdale-spoiler-Eric-Pollard-Josh-Jamie-Tracy-Dan-Spencer-knife-ITV 

'Coronation Street' even tackled knife crime *this* month!  https://www.google.com/amp/s/metro.co.uk/2019/06/06/coronation-street-spoilers-clayton-hibbs-returns-for-new-knife-crime-storyline-9826197/amp/ 

If you're gonna get mad at a Far Right storyline on a soap, I can only assume:

1. You have Far Right sympathies.

OR

2. You're happy to stand up for the Far Right for a paycheck.

Which is it? Be honest!
