I don’t believe that you can savagely cut public services without creating disastrous effects.
The Tories decade of austerity is reaping its harvest.
They have cut education, health, police, youth services, mental health, the courts, prisons, social services.
Every cut has an effect.
The schools exclude more kids because they do not have the resources to deal with them.
More kids join gangs because youth services and support have gone.
More disturbed youngsters are on the streets because mental health services cannot cope.
The police cuts have removed community policing, detection rates have dived. The criminals get away with more.
The courts and Crown Prosecution cuts mean that more criminals escape justice.
Gangs and knife crime, murder rates and violence have all increased.
It is not surprising.
The Tories, out of ideology, has slashed into the very fabric of our society!!
Tory cuts – but with the addition of a single n it describes them perfectly.
