Cameron Under Copper Pressure

When Margaret Thatcher came to power in the 1979, one of the first things she did was to implement the recommendations of the report of Lord Edmund-Davies into police conditions, in full. That immediate 45% pay-rise wasn’t forgotten in the years that followed…

Downing Street is going to come under huge pressure today to reverse on planned police cuts. And rightfully so. Boris and even Ken are outflanking the Prime Minister on the right, and deep down, despite a bit of rain and peace last night, the scenes we have seen over the last five days could come back at any time.

Things aren’t going well for Dave and were he to lose the support of the police, things will be very bleak indeed…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
