Successive Tory Govs managed to 'defund the police' to the tune of 20,000 less police officers. Just saying...

Indeed. And didn't most of the left wing progressives within the Labour party think that was a bad thing?. Strange - given some of them are now attacking Sir Kier (see tweets from Warwick Labour branch for example) for his stance on this

There is a difference between the two though, The Tory cuts were just that. 'Defund the police' proposes cutting back on police costs and redistributing to community projects. I'm not advocating DTP as I think any cuts to the police is the last thing we need right now...

Yep. Totally agree there's a difference....im just (very unsubtley!) revisting my earlier point on this thread about the effectiveness of slogans in the context of BLM.....and how ineffective some of them are. Given BLM don't 'really' mean 'defund the police', they shouldn't really be surprised when people don't 'get it'!!!

One of the policies of the Trotskyite Workers' Revolutionary Party was to replace the police with a 'Workers' Militia'

Premier League has more or less stated what Kier Starmer said so I expect that will become the standard line.

He seems to think things out so carefully and then Boris just calls him a flip flopping nincompoop (or something similar) at PMQs
