I received the following email from Theresa May today. Apparently, their strategy of screwing up the police service and focussing on cutting crime is working!
‘People who work hard and do the right thing deserve to feel safe in their homes and in their communities.
Under Labour, that wasn’t the case. Police officers were wrapped in red tape, unable to do their job – and people didn’t feel safe on the streets.
So since the last election, we’ve been working through our action plan to tackle crime: freeing the police to do their job, giving them the powers they need, and protecting communities with tougher sentences for criminals.
And our plan is working, with crime down by more than a fifth since the election:
Graphic – safer, more secure communities: 2.3 million fewer crimes than 09/10; 160.000 fewer home burglaries; 290.000 fewer vehicle crimes; 413,000 fewer violent crimes.
But we need to keep going – and we need everyone to get behind our plan. So Paul – please add your name today to show you’re backing our plan.
With your support, we can keep making our streets and our communities safer. So please sign your name today
