And yet the prisons are full, police cells are full, Mags Courts have a 300k backlog and Crown Court about a 60k backlog.
All that with 20k cops less, 22k police staff less, 600 police stations closed, 160 courts closed and the wider CJS starved of investment.
You get what you invest. This appears to be what the government of the last 12 years wants for this country.
If they left it to the public's choice that backlog would clear up faster than you could tie the nooses...
