Diane Abbott's 'car crash' interview on LBC with Nick Ferrari

Diane Abbott's 'car crash' interview on LBC with Nick Ferrari
where will the money come from dynamic good morning well the money will come from reversing some of the tax cuts to the rich through the Tories have pushed through and the tax cut was specifically identified to pay to 10,000 policemen is the cuts in capital gains tax like men so because mentally on appaluse women their police men and women oh that's not just junior why is it the distress calls for me to correct your diam but we go on yeah well let's talk about the real issues about how
diane abbott s car crash interview on lbc with nick ferrari
much people are worried about and what people are worried about is the rise in violent crime we've seen in the match for instance gun crime that by 42% and knife crime got by 24% and we believe that more community police men and women are part of the answer to this and so how much would ten thousand police officers cost well um if we recruit the ten thousand police men and women over a four year period we believe it will be about three hundred thousand pounds three hundred thousand pounds
but sorry three thousand police are you telling them no I mean sorry how much will they cost they will cost they will it will cost about about 80 million pounds about 80 million pounds right how do you get to that figure we get to that figure because we anticipate recruiting 25,000 police extra police officers a year at least over a period of four years and we're looking at both what average police wages are genuinely but also specifically police wedgied in London and this will be funded by
the reversing in some instances I think the cuts to capital gains tax but I'm right in saying that since Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the party that money has also been promised to reverse cut spending cuts in education spending cuts in arts spending cuts in sports the Conservatives say you spent this money already done ever well conservatives would say that we've not promised the money to any area we just point out that the cuts in capital gains tax will cost the taxpayer over two
billion pounds and there are better ways of spending that money but as we roll out our manifesto process we are specifically saying how we will fund specific proposals and this morning I'm saying to you that we will fund the ten thousand extra police officers by using some model but just some of the other two in pound the 80 million is the figure we yeah yeah but we issued I don't understand if you divide 80 million by ten thousand you get eight thousand what week to tell what you're
diane abbott s car crash interview on lbc with nick ferrari
going to pay these policemen know we're talking about and the process over four years I don't understand what what what is he or she get eighty million as divided by 10,000 equals eight thousand so I what are these police officers going to be pained we will be paying them the average has has been thought through of course it's been thought to where is the figures the figures are that the the additional cost in year one when we anticipate recruiting two hundred and about 250,000
Caitlin will be sixty four point three million two hundred and fifty thousand police men and women but we're so you're getting more than ten thousand you're recruiting two hundred and fifty thousand no where we are recruiting two thousands and perhaps two hundred and fifty and the costs are word word of two hundred fifty thousand come from I think you said that no no you I can assure you said that because I wrote at that what I'm saying about the cost is in year one obviously was
getting ready to recruits but but in year two the cost will be sixty four point three million in es3 the costs will be one hundred and thirty nine point 1 million yes for the cost of the two hundred and seventeen million when year five or cost will be two hundred and ninety eight million and that can be amply covered by reversing the cuts in caps again and lastly you will I'm sure be very close to police officers as I am sometimes and there are concerns within cities such as London that the
dilution of stop and search by the Prime Minister when she was Home Secretary to resume has in some way perhaps contributed to a 24% increase in knife crime in London where do you stand on stop and search

Diane

Abbott

I support evidence-based stop in search but we know in the past only a kind of fraction stocking set reveals actual crime mostly people carrying drugs for personal use and the reason for the rise in knife crime are very complex a to do with young people sadly thinking they need it
diane abbott s car crash interview on lbc with nick ferrari
for self-defense and so on but we believe that a rising community policing and community policemen and women engaging in outreach with community is part of the solution the rising life grabbing done so would you authorize increase stop because there there is a body of thought within policing as I'm sure you're aware of Shadow home Sophie but actually we need more properly executed carefully delivered respectfully done stop and search where do you stand on that we need more evidence-based
often but yet have evidence done you know that as well as I do sometimes I mean they caught the Yorkshire Ripper through a bit of a lucky one as you'll be aware you don't always necessarily have that evidence do you we believe in more evidence based on search and what we found in London is it although levels of stop and search have gone down levels of convictions related stop and search has gone on your but not rattled and honor yes but there are complicated reasons and I've come
I'll come back on your program and talk about the rise in our crime on another occasion but community policing has a big role to play in fighting love crime and Dunkirk and lastly the headline is 10,000 more police officers which very exciting but doesn't necessarily mean that there'll be good that is to say if Ford were to employ 10,000 extra people building their cars it doesn't mean they make better cars of course you need to say that to the Police Federation the Police
Federation has said that austerity is calling real issues police forces are struggling to cope and of course we need more policemen need to say to the Police Federation abusing women dot and you had a real problem with this you know you got to get into the modern-day guy and its own policemen and unit B talk seriously about crime I do I talk about it every single day I'll show you shadow inspector Bungie I've enjoyed talking to you thank you for your time
