'The police have dismissed criticism ...'

WHAT? How very dare they, to use Dale's phrase.

'The police have dismissed criticism from a Conservative MP' is R4's news headline on the story of the police trawl through Daniel Kawczynski's constituency correspondence in the Commons in searching for a handwriting match to that of a poison-pen letter received by Ed Balls that bore a Shrewsbury postmark.

Kawczynski is a prat. He failed to protect his constituents, and they will make their judgement at the ballot box. And like the woman who takes a week to decide she's been raped, after her one-night beau fails to call her, his indignation carries little weight. But this is not the point.

The police must never, never, 'dismiss' criticism from an MP.

I think it's time our newly-clean Commons remembered where their balls are and reminded the police of the correct relationship between them and Parliament.

How could they forget.
One's at Education, one's at the Treasury.

This is just like a bunch of rabbits staring at the oncoming lorry, trying to convince themselves it is not happening.
