Ho ho ho - the thin blue line gets thinner

Bizarrely, I thought this would make a much bigger story.
There are fewer police now - down at least 1,500 in a year.
But the number of PCSOs (Blunkett's plastic policemen) has DOUBLED.
This is just policing on the cheap and raises some worrying issues. Zanu Labour are forking out ever increasing amounts for policing and for what?
Civilian staff and well-paid middle management that's what.
We need more officers on streets, and we especially need officers patrolling our roads.

  1. And guess what? A lot of the few remaining policemen are sitting in vans pointing speed detection devices at people.
    In fact the total number of police on proper policing duties must be very small indeed.
