This is very likely to be snakey Home Office practice. We are in a new recession and that means that theft levels will now rise and violent crimes (overall) go down. If they now get violent crime figures up as high as they possbily can then they will claim that the Government is responsible for a huge fall that would have happened regardless…. they need to do this because they will be crucified this year when the tehft figures are sky high.

Sounds like the kind of thing that happens regularly in local authorities. They announce big cuts knowing full well that they are exagerrating the levels. Predicatable howls of outrage. They review the decisions and magically the cuts are not quite as large as first mooted.
