    A hard-hitting report by the National Audit Office concerning police cuts exposes the true extent of Tory and Lib Dem mismanagement of police and crime issues says Southport's Labour candidate, Liz Savage.





    The NAO report reveals that from 2010 on over 44,000 police and staff were cut by both parties during their time in power but that government has been unaware of the full impact of the losses. Real terms funding to Police and Crime Commissioners had plummetted by nearly a fifth at 19 per cent.



    The NAO explained:



    “The Home Office lacks a long-term plan for policing and significant gaps remain in its understanding of demand for police services and their costs... (its) light-touch approach to overseeing police forces means it does not know if the police system is financially sustainable.



    The way the department chooses to distribute funding has been ineffective and detached from the changing nature of policing for too long, and it cannot be sure overall funding is being directed to the right places."



    Responding to the report, Liz Savage attacked the way both the Tories and Lib Dems had implemented their cuts without any seeming understanding of the costs of their actions:



    " The report makes clear that government has not known the implications for policing but our communities certainly do. They see officers are severely overstretched, they see crime on the rise. For many people, Southport does not feel as safe as it once did while across Merseyside violent crime has surged 21%.




    The Tories always said our police force had enough funding but today we’ve discovered that they have been relying on guesswork. The Lib Dems went along with this, much like they did with the hostile environment that resulted in the Windrush scandal.



    Ministers still haven't got a clue whether or not forces are financially sustainable, if they are meeting their demands effectively or what the risk is to the public. They've effectively been making it up all along. Southport's Tory MP has supported them in this and has voted for the cuts.




    The report exposes the utter contempt he and the Government have shown for the safety and security of local residents and the public across the country."

    Always rely on you to launch an ad hominem attack. Little is as ugly as your replies on here... nor as ill-informed. George Osbourne himself admitted (after leaving as Chancellor of course) that Labour was not at fault for what was a worldwide recession triggered by a crisis in the US sub-prime mortgage market... and that had the Tories been in power they would not have responded much differently.

    Now any chance you could get back to the point of how the Tories and Lib Dems made all those cuts (which have resulted in the crime rise) and clearly had no idea of the implications as the NAO report details.... and Tories still have none even now?!

    Don’t worry. Tories are in full self destruct mode at the moment. They’ll soon be kicked out of office. Prcks like nosesobored and his equally unintelligent moronic mates will go scuttling back under their rocks.

    Ah yes Vox loony left propaganda rag,ROFL,Zero credibility,Now bring us a copy of the Times the telegraph or the mail the Guardian the Independent ect ect. ,As Vox write pure fiction and propaganda,,We all know if Osbourne has said that it would of been front page news,Next you will be posting links to the Canary..Keep making it up,Its a great help with more people like you we can get your jew hating racist partys voting intention down to 20%,,We all note how you dont reply to the fact your party is racist and xenophobic the fact your leader openly supports and worships terrorists terrorist states,The fact he has strong connections to the Kremlin and is listed by SIS as a Kremlin asset.You wont have an answer for that will you,I doubt you will even have an excuse..Going back to the original point,This country is not the Police state you and your Marxist chums would like to create or the one Gordon brown nearly created,The Police are more than adequately financed all that is needed is for them to do there job.

    Most amusing, Osbourne clearly says it... just listen to the interview with Andrew Neil... you know, that other well known "loony lefty"! Did you not realise that you had to press play... or is it that your bias is just so extreme you cannot face up to the fact you have been categorically proven wrong?

    If you prefer... here's something from the Spectator... that other well known bunch of loony lefties. https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2017/1...ex-chancellor/

    Anyway, you ever going to answer the actual points originally made... or are the National Audit Office loony lefties too? Gosh there seem to be an awful lot of us... no wonder you so worried! :)

    'Ugly'? Wow, what a rapier like wit. I suppose you won't vote for Theresa May because she's a really crappy dancer? Or Vince Cable has shifty eyes? Commenting on someone's appearance to somehow prove a point is the mark of a compete moron. Why not end each of your political points by blowing a raspberry.

    I find it quite incredulous that anyone, no matter which party they belong to, should be attacked when standing up to complain about cuts to the police. Aren't the Right supposed to be the 'law and order' party?

    And for how long is Gordon Brown going to be blamed for a global crash and everything that has befallen this country since? Utterly ridiculous. The GDP recovered in 2014, so what's the excuse now? We can't afford police because of Gordon Brown? Is that the best you can come up with? Get a grip.

    Given the situation about to arise in the next couple of years, investment in the police is of paramount importance. I think we should get behind anyone who supports that, regardless of political persuasion.

    According to our former MP Matthew Banks, Damien Moore is clueless and considered to be out of his depth by senior colleagues.

    What would you expect from a turncoat like Matthew Gordon-Banks - last seen shilling for the LibDems until he was suspended for anti-Semitism. Perhaps he should try Liz Savage's party as that's where most of the Jew haters seem to hang out these days. Such a good judge of character...
