Proof that the Metropolitan Police is being privatised?

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today)

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?

About thepositivevoice

We originally set out to advocate and campaign for and on behalf of people living with HIV in Greater Manchester. But we chose to slightly change our name by adding beyond. Therefore our name is Greater Manchester & Beyond of People Living With HIV & AIDS. Cause there are many issues that affects people living with HIV we now look ate other health and social care issues that will affect people living with HIV in their everyday lives. For the purpose of this site we have chosen a strap-line name hence our user name here - this is of course "thepositivevoice". The reason for this is often the issues that affect us can be quite daunting and discriminatory to our very existence. So whatever negative we hear and see - we endeavour to turn that into a positive. There are many examples where a negative has turned into a positive and one of those example is the term "Queer" - well that is also quite interesting as some people in the lesbian and gay community don't like that very word - some have decided to own it. Therefore any person that calls another person (the example here) queer - some gay people will reply yes we are. As time moves on and I as the author of this blog - information will be never-ending. So watch this space.
