Trump made waves in March when he declared that the Postal Service was losing money on every package it delivered for Amazon and falsely asserted that The Washington Post was a lobbyist for the company, before ordering a review of the service’s finances.

Cuomo sells out the yellow cabs Flushing: Gov. Cuomo now says, “You can’t have it both ways: You can’t say I charged a million dollars for a (yellow cab) medallion and I sold a franchise to work in the city and now I have an unlimited number of Ubers that have the same franchise and paid nothing” (“Andy OK with curb on Ubers,” April 3).

Are you trying to calm us down, or is it just because you’re up for reelection this year? And governor, with all due respect, why are treating us as cash cows?

That sort of thing fires up the blues and twos every time these days. Burglary? Well, unless you’re caught red-handed with a machine gun by someone, you’d get away with that too. So what’s stopping us? Something is, that’s for sure, because last year statistics show that eight out of every ten people in England and Wales was NOT the victim of any sort of crime at all. In London, this year, there have been many lurid headlines about the murder rate but the fact remains that seven million people have not been stabbed or shot. And the crime rate across the whole country continues to fall. Something it’s been doing since the Nineties. Why? We know the police are all busy looking into claims that a long-dead DJ may have goosed a fan back in the Seventies. And … [Read more...] about Cops should go all Liam Neeson when we step out of line and scare us into good behaviour
