Who made us less secure in the first place?

Post by Sassy on Wed May 24, 2017 3:35 pm

From 2015, when May cut the police force.


Police Federation crying wolf over cuts, says Theresa May

Home Secretary Theresa May has told the Police Federation to stop "crying wolf" about the impact of financial cuts.

Speaking to the federation's annual conference, she said more savings would have to be made in the next five years.

And she accused leaders of the body of "scaremongering" over the effect of cuts while crime was falling.

Earlier, chairman Steve White said the bobby on the beat was becoming an "endangered species" and neighbourhood policing was under serious threat.

However, Mrs May told federation members: "I have to tell you that this kind of scaremongering does nobody any good - it doesn't serve you, it doesn't serve the officers you represent, and it doesn't serve the public."

She listed warnings by the Police Federation - which represents rank and file officers in England and Wales - over recent years about "demoralised" and "angry" officers, along with claims members of the public were being put in danger.

"The truth is that crime fell in each of those years, it's fallen further since, and our country is safer than it's ever been," she said.

"So please - for your sake and for the thousands of police officers who work so hard every day - this crying wolf has to stop."

Also from 2015

Police cuts: Terror response warning to home secretary

Police cuts could "reduce very significantly" the UK's ability to respond to a Paris-style attack, Home Secretary Theresa May has been warned.

In a leaked letter, one of the UK's most senior police officers said that mainstream policing was essential in the fight against terrorism.

Brilliant - Astounding
Why her crystal ball method of foretelling the future and how safe she was expecting England to remain should be used by all world leaders that have such weighty 'Terrorist' issues plaguing their residents!
She must take some serious 'Knock Out Drugs' to sleep at night or she's a gutless as our own recently elected Orange Julius that has zero conscience  and lacks any morel fiber! Suspect
