Rise in violent crime
I do not believe my ears & eyes. I have just seen & heard Nick Hurd the minister responsible for policing claim that losing 20,000 police officers has nothing to do with rising levels of violent crime. What planet does this guy come from? Talking about trying to defend the indefensible.
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for over 48 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was five in April 2018 and he now has a sister, Georgia Rose, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my seventh year of ministry.
