Our ever incompetent Home Economics Secretary, Jacqui Smith was spinning a full 180 degrees today from her previous pronouncements on "acquisitive crime" inevitably going up during the recession becasue there are fuck all proper policemen on the beat anymore.
Now the spin was that the Home Orifice was taking action to bring together the experts to prevent burglaries. Is this not something that happens automatically all the time? Apparently not.
Jacqui Smith said she was determined that people should receive the best possible advice on how to protect their homes.
"I don't think there is anything inevitable about saying because we have a recession burglary needs to rise," she told BBC Breakfast, her eyes bulging with earnest uselessness. "In order to make sure that doesn't happen we are taking action. Today we are bringing together the people who know how to stop burglary. We are rounding up all of the known culprits, many of them out on bail, all of them well known to the intelligence-led police farce, and we will be signing them up to a scheme whereby they will be paid £500 a day not to commit any burglaries."The Penguin
