Tony McNulty has again criticized London Mayor Boris Johnson for his policing plans.
The Harrow East MP told the Evening Standard that the £27 million budget reduction over the coming three years would make policing more difficult.
He said of the mayor’s so-called “efficiency savings’:
“It’s no good talking tough on crime if you squeeze the Met so that their job becomes increasingly difficult.”
Last month the Labour MP branded Boris a ‘clown’ for stepping down from his post running the Metropolitan Police Authority.
