No the spending cuts were announced years ago, including the £12bn cuts in welfare - this cut has nothing to so whatsoever with welfare or refugees, it's purely a government intent on privatising everything and giving tax cuts to the richest 5%.
The police are more and more being replaced by private firms such as G4S as for some crazy reason the government think turning everything 'for profit' will magically make things better.
Wow ok, privatizing ones police force and 12bn cut to welfare sounds fraught to bring big problems as it takes effect.
Best of luck over there.

I have been burgled 4 times this year for the first time in my life. The government needs to sort this s**t out because the criminals are already taking advantage of the situation.
The moment we let the government start squeezing the members of society least able to fight back we brought all this on ourselves.
