READ THIS BOOK.
It's written by the UK's most popular police blogger. He likes law enforcement and nicking bad 'uns. He doesn't like the Home Office or Grauniad-reading muesli-eating types much, but as he says in his book, he doesn't get much in the way of negative or contradictory feedback in his comments or email inbox. Before opining on UK policing, I recommend you visit his site or buy his book. Looks like the snow has stopped falling, so hopefully no blogging over the next few days. Somebody else is moderating comments for me.
