The government is putting extra money into counter-terrorist policing

Truthfullness 2 / 5

Fact checked by: realitycheck


From Boris Johnson’s interview with Andrew Marr

Boris claimed the Tories were putting in an extra £160 million. In reality their spending plans for 2020-2021 amount to an increase in line with inflation only.

The £160m is the difference between spending plans announced in 2015 and the figure eventually spent in 2019-20.

Do you agree this deserves 2 / 5 for truthfullness?
