More on policing and utter madness

The other day I was commenting on policing in Britain, and the way the priorities seemed to be all wrong. A lot of police time seems to be, er, wasted on clamping down on politically incorrect speech and peaceful protest. The result? According to the European Commission, there has been a 77 per cent increase in murders, robberies, assaults and sexual offences in the UK since Labour came to power. Inevitable, I suppose.

Thanks to Tom Paine, who has an excellent piece on it here.

By the way, I need a break from computer screens and blogging. Expect little or nothing for the next week or two.

Appalling. I'm not sure which is worse, the 77% figure, or Tom's comment:

Every Labour Home Secretary has announced that crime figures are stable or falling.
