The cuts to the Met are coming from Khan's budget, not Boris's. Khan was told to make cuts across the board, but does he get rid of the non jobs like NIght Czar (Night Czar) and other like minded shite, but no, he decides to cut the budgets for police, fire and ambulance services. Mind, he has cut the budget for City Hall by moving from that magnificant building by Tower Bridge to some gaff in Docklands.Cresida Dick CC of the "MI5" is rubbing her hands that the BLM budget cuts calls so she can blame Boris and do the cuts and spend the money saved used for crime to promote diversity (LGBT) and blame Boris again.
This piece from the Telegraph explains what Khan is upto with the London budget:-
"If Sadiq Khan is going to solve City Hall's money woes, he is going to have to put Londoners' priorities first and cut his wasteful virtue-signalling initiatives.
In the wake of the coronavirus crisis, the Greater London Authority faces, we are told, a whopping £493 million black hole in its budget over the next two years. It means for the first time as Mayor, Sadiq Khan must save money, rather than spend it.
Unfortunately for Londoners, the Mayor is already lining up cuts to his budget for London's emergency services. On Friday Khan unveiled his plan to balance City Hall's books by cutting £109.3 million from Metropolitan Police and £25 million from the London Fire Brigade.
Despite his warnings of a new austerity post-coronavirus, an approach which the Government has rejected, Sadiq Khan is ironically planning to impose it on London himself. And Khan's proposed cuts are not small. His policing cuts alone are the equivalent to the salaries of 1,681 police officers.
As usual, Sadiq Khan is treating this crisis as a press opportunity to attack the Government, rather than a problem he is responsible for solving. His gambit is that by playing the part of a 'poor Mayor' and publicly calling for ministers to step in and bail him out again, Londoners will not notice that he is the one choosing to drop the axe on the vital services that keep our city safe.
While the Mayor may choose to shirk responsibility, he does have a choice when it comes to balancing City Hall's books. He could safeguard the budgets of London's police and fire brigade by reversing his huge spending increases on City Hall waste and TfL perks for the past four years.
In February, Conservative London Assembly members proposed an alternative budget plan which identified £113 million of savings the Mayor could make to invest in London's emergency services. Sadly, Khan rejected the proposal at the time, but if he looked again at the plan, he could find enough savings to protect the budgets of London's police and fire brigade.
To fix City Hall's finances, Sadiq Khan must cut his ridiculous projects and his eye-watering splurges. At the most ludicrous end, Khan has splashed almost half a million pounds on pop-up beach parties at the Royal Docks, £30k on a bicycle ballet to explore female liberation, and £1.7 million on a hundred, rather ugly, water fountains. Only a particularly inept Mayor could prioritise these projects above extra police officers.
