Tulip sid­diq has been lament­ing how cuts in po­lice num­bers have forced her con­stituents in hamp­stead, North Lon­don, to launch an ap­peal for £600,000 to pay for five po­lice of­fi­cers. she was be­ing in­ter­viewed by BBC ra­dio on a mo­bile phone and had to move to a nearby po­lice sta­tion precinct to get a bet­ter sig­nal. Of course, there was no short­age of of­fi­cers there. They de­manded to look at her phone to check she wasn’t a se­cu­rity snooper. Tulip says: ‘They were just do­ing their job, but it was ironic, given what I was talk­ing about.’
