After Terror Attacks, Critics Say Britain’s PM May Should Quit

After seven people were killed in London terror attacks, Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Britain’s Labour Party, says Prime Minister Theresa May should resign because she presided over a sharp cutback in the nation’s police forces. In 2010, May cut police budgets by 18 percent. Over the next five years the number of officers in England and Wales fell from a peak of 144,353 in 2009 to 122,859 in 2016.
