Conned by New Labour spin!

The shame of it! It seems that the drop in crime this winter that I ascribed below to the reformed licensing laws may have in fact been partly due to an entirely coincidental six-week scheme to increase police presence in binge-drinking troublespots. So its too soon to tell what effect the new laws have had (cautious eyes are on this summer's World Cup), but its clear that giving the police an extra £2.5 million helps reduce the crime rate.

I'm still right.
