Labouring arithmetic

I see that the odious Diane Abbott (can you tell that I don't rate her very much) had a car-crash of an interview with LBC recently, a more toe-curling and painful exchange you couldn't hope to have. It's up there with the best of the Farage and Nuttall crew. Abbott answered a question on how much Labour policy on hiring police officers would cost by saying that 10,000 new officers hired over 4 years would cost £300,000. I realise that most policemen probably feel that they're underpaid for the work they do, but 30 quid over 4 years seems a bit much; the canteen facilities must be out of this world! It's funny how something as appallingly inept as this looks almost normal these days. Still, there's not much chance of Labour gaining power in the next general election and you could argue, even less now.
