Intelligence spending up, Justice Ministry spending down. Does that make sense to anyone?

Posted on

According to the Guardian:

The security and intelligence agencies - MI5, MI6, and GCHQ - will benefit from a 3.4% increase in their combined annual budget of nearly £2bn under the government’s spending plans, in a move likely to mark the start of a significant long-term trend.

So we'll know who the criminals are.

And then it notes:

The Ministry of Justice budget will be cut by 10%.

So we won't be able to prosecute them.

Maybe we'll be shooting them instead. That's the only way to square that circle.
