Prime Minister at the beginning of the week wearing a police uniform trying to convince the nation that he’s got crime under control. He’s ending the week with no control at all.

But the Tories want to talk about crime, so let’s go.

Since 2010, the Government has closed down nearly 300 courts and 667 police stations, buildings that were supposed to keep the public safe. In Runcorn, there is a Magistrates Court that was closed by the Government in 2017. Locals consider it derelict.
