He said there is an impression of a growing "culture of insolence" with "thugs" that believe they can act with impunity, and wants to tackle the rising knife crime.

Over the course of this week Johnson wants to unveil new sentencing plans in a bid to tackle rising violent crime across the UK.

Mr Johnson has spoken repeatedly in the past about stop and search as a means of keeping streets safe, saying during a speech at the Conservative Party conference in 2018: "Don't you think it's time we brought back systematic stop and search to end the politically correct nonsense that has endangered the lives of young people in our capital and elsewhere?"

Johnson said writing in the Mail on Sunday, "We have the impression of a growing culture of insolence on the part of the thugs; and in the face of that sense of impunity, entirely misplaced".

"We do need a sentencing review, but its aim should be to reverse decades of pointless sentence inflation". The CPS is desperately in need of significant investment to improve its capacity to deliver effectively for the public, but this has to be seen as a modest first step in the rebuilding process.

As well this alternative community sentences are being beefed upped.

"This can not go on".

The Prime Minister's Office said the review would focus on whether perpetrators of sexual offenses or accompanied by violence are serving sentences commensurate with the seriousness of their offenses.

Critics warned there was no evidence to suggest longer sentences would reduce crime.

She said the "serious problem" of the huge numbers of men behind bars for sex offences - mostly against women and children - needed to be addressed but prevention was the answer, adding: "We have more life sentence prisons in England and Wales than any other country in the Council of Europe combined".

Liberal Democrat justice spokeswoman Wera Hobhouse echoed the views that lengthening sentences simply overcrowds prisons and wastes public money. "Instead of just talking tough, it's time ministers look at the evidence".
