Boris Slams Dave's Police Cuts

While Ken shot himself in the left foot with his much derided linking of the riots to cuts, Boris has pointed his gun elsewhere – behind him rather than forwards though. Speaking on Today he knew exactly what he was doing when he said:

“If you ask me whether I think there is a case for cutting police budgets in the light of these event, then my answer to that would be no.
