Mrs May really has a nerve.

Not only has she lied about police numbers, but her campaigners in the local government election are blaming the fall on the Labour Party.

The ‘Keep Havering Safe’ leaflet – now withdrawn – warned that a Labour victory would result in “a London crime wave with even less police”.

And whose fault would it be?

The Tories’ fault.

But they didn’t mention that!

Theresa May has secretly slashed 7,000 local cops she claimed were safe from Tory cuts.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly boasted of protecting the budgets of police forces.

But her Government’s own figures directly contradict her claim.

A total of 6,853 police officers and PCSOs were axed from local policing units between 2015 and 2017, according to a Labour analysis of Home Office figures.

Two thirds of forces suffered a fall in the number of uniformed officers and PCSOs in local policing despite Mrs May’s claims she hadn’t cut cops.
