Liberal pledges

Good to see that the Liberals are promising to recruit an additional 10,000 Police. On the basis that only 10% of their time is spent "on the beat", that's an effective increase of just 1,000!! I must buy some shares in the leading paperclip manufacturers in anticipation of all the additional paperwork they will create.

Why don't they look at reforming the Police and aim to double the time on the beat? That would double Police visibility, be far more reassuring to the public and wouldn't require any tax increases either!!
