Me saying that 20,000 officers have gone since 2010, is a stone cold fact. BJ promising 20,000 officers within 3 years is an aspiration, that may or may not come true, and is not a comparable use of figures and dates between me and him. You must be able to see that.Then YOU are your own problem.
Test capacity has been given.
Uptake is published, no shows are published.
So the circumstances you want have been explained. Yet you seem to feel you haven’t been given the truth.
My whole point is that when you set figures and dates, it’s not always helpful for the politicians who feel obliged to meet them, even if it’s not relevant or possible, or the public, who set some store by that figure and then feel let down when someone points out that they aren’t as transparent as at first thought.
Thanks for the good natured discussion, I appreciate it. I’m in work at 0700 and need to go to bed though.
