London Mayor Boris Johnson has forced the Metropolitan Police to cut thousands of police officer posts in a drive to save money.
But now the Met’ is being forced to use police officers employed by private companies to fill the gaps:
Surely paying a private company for police officers is much more expensive than employing the officers directly?
Unless of course Boris’s primary objective isn’t to save money but to privatise the Metropolitan Police instead?
