Keith Holloway fought against government plans to halve police numbers

Keith Holloway writes:

We would like to thank everyone who supported our campaign against Conservative plans to cut Police funding just at the time we most need a strong police force.

Up and down the country people saw the threat of the Conservative proposals and fought against them. I am very proud that our community played our part in the campaign. We made our voice heard, and we won the battle.

The force of public opinion made George Osborne back down on his plans. The Police, along with numerous experts, told Osborne how dangerous his plan was.

The Liberal Democrats will continue to fight for our local community and we are always grateful for your support.

    I think it was the Paris bombing that made Chicken Dave ask Osborne to rethink his plans

    A ‘cheep’ shot, Halifax, but probably true.

    It’s very rare that any one thing or person is solely responsible for a government change of policy. I’m quite sure that the terrorist attacks had an impact, I’m also sure that the outcry from police and public at a time crime figures are rising again had an impact too.
