ACPO plods squander our tax for secret shag-pads

The sinister and shadowy ACPO, a body unaccountable to either Parliament or the public, has used part of the £33m a year paid to it by the Home Office to buy shag-pads in central London for its senior officers, reports the Mail.

This misuse of public funds proves yet again that senior plods can't be trusted with public money; it follows hard on the heels of the Met's credit card scandal, under which millions of Londoner's taxes were stolen by senior plods for their personal, non-work related use.

More reason than ever to abolish the anti-democratic cabal of ACPO, and to bring plod under tight, local, civilian control.
