What was cost of re-hiring police?

WELL, what I said a few years ago is coming back to roost.

Cameron and co decided in their wisdom to cut the police force to the bone. They could not afford to keep us safe.

I could not believe it when I saw that Durham/Northumbria police force is looking to recruit 600 police trainees.

How much did it cost to get rid of all the police persons and how much is it going to cost to re-employ said people? I have no doubt that somewhere along the line Theresa May will realise that we also need to re-employ the 80,000 armed service personnel that were sacked. Mind, none from the top ranks went.

We need them more than ever with the ever-increasing threats from Isis.

More than ever we need our health service workers as well. Jeremy Hunt should go and do a week's worth of shifts with the doctors and nurses. I doubt he will have the bottle to do it though.
