How much of Boris' spending pledges should we believe


It would help if the media held his wild claims properly to account.

For example, the breathless reporting of his "20,000 new police officers in 3 years" claim - I have seen very little mention of the fact that that through retirement and other natural wastage, we'll lose around 20k officers in the next 3 years; so a nett zero effect.

And that's quite aside from the fact that having closed so many police stations, there'd be nowhere for them to work even if we did get new ones.

Yes, it turned our to be an extremely ambiguous "policy".
I think that he said "new" rather than "additional" which keeps numbers pretty much the same as they are now.

Everything is largely irrelevant until Brexit is either done or dead.
