Bobbies Protest Austerity Cuts In London

Hey, United Kingdom! How are you liking the term of British Prime Minister David Cameron?

The British are now paying the consequences for electing him into office. First, his ties to Rupert Murdoch were exposed during the hacking scandal. Next, there were the UK riots. Now, he is pushing austerity onto the people of Great Britain.

With the Summer Olympics being in London this year, Cameron had the bright idea to cut funding for policing. As a result, five thousand police officers in the UK have lost their jobs so far. Sixteen thousand more officers will lose their jobs over the next four years. How smart is that? Fired bobbies will have to find new hobbies in unemployment lobbies. Don't flop!

Also, due to the austerity, there will phase out all probation officers within the country. Instead of offenders meeting with a probation officer every month after being released from prison, the UK will be setting up machines throughout the land that will take their place. That means that British citizens will have to remain more alert as these austerity cuts will make the UK a less safer place.
