UK that bastion of prosperity and abundant wealth overseen and managed by intelligent – educated – trustworthy politicians! Take one look at the rubric and everyone will know that if Diane Abbott represents the best of a motley bunch of Labour party MPs… Then who can help the hapless UK as 2017 election day looms!

What a complete and total shambolic joke MPs are in UK – that is the lot of them including the hopeless Prime Minister Theresa May, by the way for readers around the world Theresa May is considered the best of a bad bunch.

More to the star of the rubric – Diane Abbott this is what she had to say yesterday in an interview with Nick Ferrari of LBC…

Full exchange text follows…

Nick Ferrari: So how much would 10,000 police officers cost?

Diane Abbott: Well, if we recruit the 10,000 policemen and women over a four year period, we believe it’ll be about £300,000.

If you divide £300,000 by 10,000 new police officers that’s just £30 each in wages. It’s more like £7.50 if you divide it by the four years Diane Abbott mentions above

Nick Ferrari: £300,000?

Diane Abbott: Sorry … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: 10,000 police officers? What are you paying them?

Diane Abbott: No, I mean, sorry … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: How much will they cost.

Diane Abbott: They will cost [long pause], it will cost, erm, about, about £80m.

Nick Ferrari: The £80m is the figure we use. But I don’t understand. If you divide £80m by 10,000, you get 8000.

This is still far lower than the £20,000 starting salary new officers generally make in their first year on the job.

Diane Abbott: What … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Is that what you’re going to pay these policemen and women?

Diane Abbott: No, we’re talking about a process over 4 years.

Nick Ferrari: I don’t understand. What is he or she? £80m divided by 10,000 equals £8000. So I don’t, what are these police officers going to be paid?

Diane Abbott: We will be paying them the average … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Has this been thought through?

Diane Abbott: Of course it’s been thought through!

Nick Ferrari: Where are the figures?

Diane Abbott: The figures are that the, the additional cost in year 1 when we anticipate recruiting 250,000 policemen will be £64.3m.

Nick Ferrari: 250,000 policemen?

Diane Abbott: And women.

Nick Ferrari: Right. Where…? So you’re getting more than 10,000? You’re recruiting 250,000?

Diane Abbott: No, we are recruiting 2000 and perhaps 250. And the cost … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Where did 250,000 come from?

Diane Abbott: I think you said that not me.

Nick Ferrari: I can assure you – you said that figure because I wrote it down.

Diane Abbott: What I’m saying about the cost is in year 1 obviously we’re getting ready to recruit, but in year 2 the cost will be £64.3m, in year 3 the cost will be £139.1m, year 4 the cost will be £270m, and year 5 the cost will be £298m, and that can be amply covered by reversing the cuts in capital gains tax.

Confused? We are what a shambles, or maybe we are wrong and who knows maybe being able to answer questions like that warrant a university PhD or who knows maybe such ability only enables one to ascend to the highest ranking Labour MP in UK…
