Too bloody right they will. As I stood by a burning car last night which was trashed by a group of about 20 odd youths I spoke to a witness to the incident. She couldn't understand that there was only three of us at the incident and wanted to know why we weren't baton charging up the street like on Sky News. When I explained that we were the only three bobbies available (From a different area) to make to their estate she was shocked and looking at the clapped out 9 year old mini car derived van we'd turned up in with my colleague having to climb through from the back to the front to get out I think it left a lasting effect on her. She said well I suppose one good thing to come from this is the police cuts won't happen anymore. I had to hold in my actual thoughts and I limited my reply to "Watch this space." So like this woman are you confused into believing this will change anything or like me do you believe in a few weeks time the headlines will change and the government will help you forget this.
