Boris, you've done something good!

Boris (Johnson) has done it again, in his own fangled use of words eluding to the truth, but typically his use of words are not policially correct and frustrating. His comment on historic abuse enquirys and the current level of public funding to the police (and others) has caused them alarm, as he used some street language and not that expected from a former editor, a well educated parliamentarian nor a former minister.

I am grateful that he has raised the issue and highlighted the concerning amounts of money wasted on historic child sex abuse, but not entirely sure he should have used the phrase "spaffed up the wall" to question the copious amount of public funds that has been allocated. Especially as individual officers would have claimed non urgent case overtime payments depriving their budgets for more community resourcing. 

The current process of a ‘witch hunt’ by organisations like the Police and the open-ended ‘Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA)’, led by Professor Alexis Jay are now an obscenity, especially in these times of austerity. If the likes of Alexis Jay wish to prove their worth, they should consider accepting realistic expenses and not be drawing high salaries.  As for the legal team, god and they alone know how much they receive in this ‘jobs for the boys’ exercise. Justifiably this should only be the equivalent to the average barrister salary involved in the average Criminal cases, but I have my doubts if this is the current payment levels. The open-ended status of this enquiry could see the team investigating the ‘Dotheboys Halls’ of centuries ago. No doubt it would become a practice of digging up of the bodies and using mediums to establish the truth. Naturally, this could result in using soothsayers to bring the inquiry to its conclusion.

When I was arrested on a false allegation (from the Police themselves) it was considered that the 'dawn raid' on my property in Devon, of 7 officers, and the raid on my premises in North Yorkshire included a further 6 officers was some how justified? In Yorkshire the 14 hours of my custody, with the same 3 officers hanging around was concluded with a 'free ride' to the hospital (where they hung around) from which they must have pesented a significant claim for overtime. In their eyes they 'had their man', so what was the need for them to extend their time? Are the Police a bit mercenary?

The highest payment including overtime to a constable was £61,712 in 2017 - 18.  With 130 other officers (in the Met) being in receipt of overtime of more than £56,000. Last year's total would have been enough to pay the salaries of more than 4,000 Met constables on a starting wage of £22,146. (Figures released on the 5 Jan 2018).
