You cannot have safety and security on the cheap – Diane Abbott

Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, responding to today’s Conservative Party release on imagined crime numbers under a Labour government, said:

“These are more dodgy numbers from a Tory party that cut the police and presided over a rise in serious and violent crime.”

“Labour has consistently argued that we need more police and investment in all the areas of neglect that have contributed to rising crime. The Tories are trying to distance themselves from their own record in government.”

“You cannot have safety and security on the cheap.”
