What is this purple flowered murderer?

And how do I get rid of it? We have a small flowerbed that runs up the side of our yard, and this thuggish plant is doing its best to crowd out anything else and is now sending out roots to pop up through paving slabs too.

What's the best way of getting rid of it? Have toddler, so don't want to use anything long-lasting, but just hacking it back doesn't seem to work as it just pops up elsewhere.

Looks like a weedy version of michaelmas daisy (aster). The plants between the paving slabs might be seedlings rather than running roots. It should dig out easily - don't let it go to seed!
