Sajid Javid hints at cash injection for London police

Recommended Posts



"The home secretary has told Sky News the police need more funding to help tackle knife crime as he hinted the chancellor would be stumping up the cash in the coming weeks.

Speaking exclusively to Sky News in the wake of five fatal stabbings in the capital in just seven days, Sajid Javid said he was "deeply worried" about the spiralling violence and said he was in discussions with the chancellor to make sure the police had the financial resources they needed."

Mrs May won't be happy, she and Amber RUDD have continued to deny that cutting police resources has impacted on the rise in violent crime, and the Fed were scaremongering. #cutshaveconsequences

I’ll believe it when I see it. It’s usually a sleight of hand trick, so I apologise for being a non believer at this stage.

So he has Hinted financial assistance in London, note only hinted. What about the rest of the country, or is it only the residents of London who are deserving of Policing.

What would be wrong with a firm statement, Finance to  be increased to allow Policing to return to the Police levels of 2008, and also to pay for a further increase of 10% on staffing levels.

So long as London is alright eh?

Equally a jaw dropping moment of realisation for me would be the way counter-terrorism budgets are funded within the different transportation industries and I know this will come as a massive shock to many of you here as it was a big shock to me BUT the railway funds the vast majority of BTPs counter terrorism functions without any help from central government...

The aviation industry however has the vast majority of its counter terrorism budget funded not by the industry but by the tax payer...

This gets even more bizarre when you realise the vast majority of terrorist attacks within the UK have occurred either directly on BTP Jurisdiction (Manchester, 7/7 etc) or just outside of it (London Bridge etc.)

Very strange state of affairs.

There is no city apart from London, the entire country is within the M25. Haven't you looked at the maps?! It's all Dogheads and There Be Dragons beyond that.
