I was at the Woodhall Parade shops on Sunday and counted six police cars in the car park. To the best of my knowledge no major incident had taken place because I am certain if it had, your esteemed organ would have had it immediately bold and large on your website.

So this begs the question, what dire emergency required this presence?

The only activity I could see was a group of teenagers acting bravely in front of a couple of officers - but certainly no crazed gunman or civil unrest on a grand scale.

So if we lose 150 you have to ask, will we be any worse off, because to me it looks like we have a surplus if Sunday was anything to go by.
