ACPO is a sinister and shadowy organisation beyond the reach of any public accountability, its members peer-selected in a corrupt freemasonry of cabalistic power. It feels powerful enough to advise Chief Constables to ignore the ECHR ruling on illegally held DNA, and now they have the statutory right to veto any Chief Constable appointment made by a democratically elected Police Authority. The first task of a Conservative government should be to outlaw the organisation and remove all its privileges.
No doubt that's why ACPO Capo di tutti capi Hugh Orde has come out so strongly against Cameron's proposed democratically elected Chief Constables or Watch Committees in today's Independent.
And just who elected you, Hugh? Or any of your chums in ACPO?
If the public wants someone to head their local police force who is neither a Freemason of the old order or of the new malefic Common Purpose, that's their choice - it's their police force - who the Hell do you think you are to interfere?
