So I’m finally reading my new Elizabeth George, and she’s describing the horrific cuts to the UK police force as a result of austerity. It’s a fucking disgrace, that’s what it is. If this is what’s done to the police force, then I shudder to think about the devastation inflicted on education.
George is a fanatic of investigation, and always researches her books very carefully. I don’t believe she’s inventing this.
This is what I mean when I talk about the dismantling of the nation-state. And it’s downright criminal.
