Mr Mayor, you and I have sat in this horseshoe now for just over seven years.
Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London): It has been historic.
Kit Malthouse AM MP: During that time, the conversation and the questions from the other parties have never changed.
Boris Johnson MP (Mayor of London): It has deteriorated.
Kit Malthouse AM MP: It has always been, “You are cutting. It is a disaster. Things are going to get worse”, yet crime and the budget have inexorably fallen, together, in parallel. Do you think your victory in 2012 and the Government’s victory not a few weeks ago illustrate that the public does not buy it anymore - actually, what they want is for politicians to work with police officers and others on how they can be more efficient with the resources that they have - and also that you have, with the Commissioner, fundamentally broken the idea that inputs equal outputs on policing?
