It sounds pretty sensible to me. You don't have to use them unless they are needed. It is when they are needed and you don't have them that you look bonkers.

This summer is going to be the hottest on record so people are going to need cooling down.

Bit over doing it to put water on to flatten Boris's hair down (A water cannon).

The question is why does he think they will be needed?

Probably because of this.

There is a lot of low life scum about. It is rather like nuclear weapons. They are very unpopular amongst folk who might cause them to be used.

 

I expect there are a lot of folk who would prefer he didn't take precautions so if there are riots where water cannon would be needed they could say he wasn't prepared.

If this is true then all he is doing is supplying the Police with the equipment they feel they need.

It's a bit like building up coal stocks before a miner's strike. It helps you stay in control.

A bit pointless building up coal stocks if only one miner is out on strike.

They could always be re-tasked for the annual fire fighters strike.
