Figures released today (January 25) show that the Conservative Government has failed abjectly to reduce crime or homelessness.
Both have risen, with crime up by 14 per cent in the last year – and homelessness up by a staggering 169 per cent since the Tories came back into office in 2010.

The rise in crime in England and Wales is accelerating, with a 14% year-on-year increase in offences recorded by forces across England and Wales, according to police figures.

Knife crime has gone up even more steeply, by 21% in the 12 months to September, and gun crime has risen by 20%, according to quarterly figures released on Thursday.

The police figures show domestic burglary rose by 32% to 261,965 offences and vehicle thefts rose 18% to 443,577.

Meanwhile, official figures show the number of police officers in England and Wales has fallen by 930 in the past 12 months, to 121,929, the lowest level since comparable records began in 1996. Police officer numbers are now 22,424 below their peak in 2009, when there were 144,353 officers.

I really, really wish something would be put through parliament faster for homelessness. It`s ridiculous that even people who are working are living in sheds or being accommodated by friends or having to wait on any assistance. Just seen more on this on tonight`s BBC news, yet where are the policy changes? I`ve heard them say they will tackle it by 2025......don`t get me started.....
