Flat footed lobbying

Each protected area of the public services has its own approach at screaming when its gold plated hand outs are threatened.

For example the RAF will always threaten to disband the Red Arrows. Because its the best saving ? Well it might be for all I know - but that's not the reason. Its because they know its the cut the public will object to the most and if they can stop the rot cuts there then they can save everything else without having to change or justify it.

So we have Si Flat Foot Orde claiming that, wait for it, bobbies on the beat will disappear if anyone is insane enough to ask the police to perform better. He knows its almost the key political issue and the one that will get the headlines and complaints from the public.

The problem for Sir Flat Foot is that some forces have already started improving their efficiency and they happen to be some of the best rated and respected forces int he country. He'd better hope no journalists do any research or else he's going to look - well like a flat footed plot. ( Hint to journo's - Surrey ).

Of course Surrey Police have been complaining for donkeys years about the Labour goverment starving them of funds for political reasons. ("Its all going up north to Labour areas Guv") It will be interesting to see in which direction the money, what there is of it, goes now.
