Policing in London dropping numbers… and now, during CRITICAL Alert Levels, May has to bring the Army on the streets

Theresa May tells police to put up with cuts and stop ‘scaremongering’ in 2015….. and now we have the army on the streets

The Tories have repeatedly been warned savage budget cuts to policing would leave the UK vulnerable to terrorism but since 2010 the Government has systematically cut policing budgets.

In London the Met has had to make savings of £600million with a further £400million to be found.

Until last weekend rumours were the Met would see police numbers in London fall to only 28,000!!!
The Tories talk tough on tackling crime and terrorism but will they put OUR money where their mouth is an give the police the funding and resources it needs to keep us safe from crime and more terrorist attacks?
