ACPO and hypocrisy

Political policing, again

The gravy train, don't get left behind!The gravy train, don't get left behind!
According to Gilbert and Sullivan, "A policeman's lot is not a happy one, happy one". Perhaps true then but would seem to be wide of the mark, for some officers, now. For here we are in the age of the cutbacks but for the lucky ones the gravy train chugs along as if there's no problem. The police, we are told, will get £150million in bonuses.This headline from the BBC (see link) is not quite perjury, but then neither is it the truth. The fact is SOME officers will get a bonus, not all. The BBC gives the credit for their source to the Daily Telegraph and even their headline - Police receive bonuses just for doing their daily job, begs a little care, see HERE.
