As the PM steps down, Federation National Chair John Apter pulls no punches on the damage she has caused to policing
Theresa May stands down as leader of the Conservative party – she will continue as Prime Minister until her successor is appointed – but in reality, early June marks ‘The End of May’.
Let’s be honest here - for the majority of police officers (myself included) it has not come a day too soon.
Mrs May has made no secret of her thoughts on policing – her contempt and disdain for the profession has been vocal and sustained during her time as Home Secretary, and then throughout her tenure as Prime Minister. Her actions have been devastating for policing, genuinely devastating.
