According to the Middy (19/03/2015), the Conservative Police & Crime Commissioner for Sussex, Katy Bourne, has “thrown her support behind plans to cut 1,000 jobs and slash 56m from the force’s budget by 2020”.

These Coalition Government cuts to the fundamental public services we rely upon, would not be necessary, if we left the EU and saved at least £8bn pa in net contributions, cut the foreign aid budget by £9bn pa and scrapped the HS2 project costing up to £70bn, which is uneconomical & unjustified.
