Police pensions revisited

Something tells me that cuts in the police budget are now going to be quietly shelved and noisily reversed. If the government has any role whatsoever, it is to maintain public order and to protect people and property.

The model run by every government since 1945, culminating in the Blair/Brown years, was to shift public spending away from core government functions to providing universal services and a massive transfer of wealth from the productive to everyone else.

Tonight is a watershed moment. Politicians will either grasp the nettle or will bottle it. If they bottle it the consequences will be catastrophic.

    I’m up listening to LBC, people want the army out, never mind the cops. The vigilantes will be out and it’ll get ugly.

    Maybe these people that have been telling us all to buy gold and guns for the last 4 years were right after all!

    Note that the 1980s riots were also conducted by a cohort that had grown up under socialism.
