Police above suspicion

May 9, 2011

The Coalition has dropped individual police officer assessment and they are now instead to be presumed to be competent. Try telling that to the Jean Charles de Menezes’ and Ian Tomlinson’s families! I suspect this to be nothing more than a softener thrown to the police to ease them swallowing the cuts in their numbers. But one thing you can always be sure of – cutting red tape only ever means one thing when brandished by a right wing politician – the loss of regulation and the need for personal accountability.
