Far be it from me –

May to police: “stop scaremongering, we’re safer than ever” #GE17 (video)

on May 25, 2017


As the backlash builds against Theresa May for her attempts to ride Monday night’s tragedy for political gain when she is responsible for the ‘dangerous’ weakening of our police and emergency resources, yet more damaging footage is emerging to show the wilful arrogance with which she, as Home Secretary, rode roughshod over the warnings and protests of the police about the likely consequences of her policies.

May spoke to the Police Federation – the nearest that police are allowed to a union – as Home Secretary in 2015. Her tone can most kindly be described as condescending as she lectured them and accused them of ‘scaremongering’.

And told them that the UK, in spite of her cuts – which she vowed to continue – was,

Safer than it has ever been.

May’s hubris caused her not only to ignore but to ridicule the warnings of experienced police officers.
