Under the Tories, more than 20,000 police officers have been cut. The government was warned by experts, by police officers and, yes, by Jeremy Corbyn and others at the time that this could have grave consequences in the fight against terrorism. But with Theresa May as home secretary they cut anyway.
The same is true for the Border Force. Despite lots of rhetoric about border security and control, the Tories have axed 1,000 staff from the Border Force on May’s watch. We know our security and emergency services spring into action in an emergency. But the Tories cut the fire service too
But what will perhaps most concern those asking how terrorists slip through the net, is that the Tories cut the budget in real terms for the security and intelligence agencies themselves. They also cut the numbers of personnel.Hmmmm....
This is the wrong priority. The safety and security of our citizens must always come first. Labour will always ensure that is our priority, and that the security and intelligence services get the resources they need to defend us from terrorism here at home.Says who..? Well, believe it or not, this woman:
Gosh. I'm convinced. Anyone else?
