This is to begin within weeks and will take up to three years.
Excellent news. It precisely reverses the disgusting police cuts implemented by Theresa May as Home Secretary in 2010. One of her flagship policies, and Johnson has chucked it out of the window within 24 hours of taking office. I am certain the police cuts are why are streets are becoming increasingly lawless, with knife crime, acid attacks, etc. He could win a general election on this policy alone, everyone is sick of it and itís all Mayís fault.
Remains to be seen if it actually happens but itís a good move and it clearly shows he wants things to change.
