The government and their priorities
It seems that stopping people smoking is more important in the government’s list of priorities than reducing assaults.
Despite a Government poll showing community safety was voters' overwhelming priority, anti-crime initiatives will not be the main focus of authorities.
While reducing "serious acquisitive crime" such as thefts from cars was sixth, cutting the rate of "assault with injury" was 13th and domestic violence 20th.
Considered a higher priority than both by most councils were stopping smoking. Isn’t it wonderful to see the government getting their priorities in order?
