Answer for More Police or Tory Tax Cut (Supplementary) [4]

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Sadly ' and this is one of the reasons I was not a Labour candidate in 2000 ' because the Government continued with the outgoing Tory Government's two-year spending programme, things continued to get worse. That was one of the points of dispute between myself, the Prime Minister, and the Chancellor, which played a large part in my not being the Labour Party candidate.
