Weak on Crime; weak on the causes of crime

We all know that Labour gave up addressing the causes of crime some years ago. Last night on BBC Newsnight we learned that they are now giving up on recording, let alone attempting to solve, some crimes.

In April the Home Office issued guidance to police stations not to even record cheque and credit card fraud any more; people should report it direct to their bank. The bank may (or more likely may not) later report to the police.

The issue is being discussed on the site BBC-Talk about Newsnight

But with positive action We Can Cut Crime.
