        I heard the interview with the sun “journalist “this whole situation is pure mischief making. I personally couldnt care less what really happened, i feel there must have been faults on both sides. Also since when have police officers notebooks been printed in the sun ! This is Murdoch making mischief.

          Saw Tom The Sun reporter who “broke” the story being interviewed on the Daily Politics Show. He was very unsure about the detail and very coy about whether or not he had a copy of it. A put up job by the Police Federation – a rather clumsy put up job in fact. Still a long time since many of the Police Fed Pilgrims had last been on the beat.

          As hard as it might be – Murdoch is also going down with the Bliar Pirates liars, cheats, frauds, criminals and general low-lifes of that reign.

        I agree it is manufactured ‘outrage’ but politicians might do well to realise why groups such as the police feel so strongly . Over the past several years, many politicians with little history of ever doing a useful job or facing any real front line risk (I except Stephen Timms) have jumped on populist bandwagons and courted the media with their knee-jerk condemnations. Public sector professionals have been subjected to disciplinary procedures for trivia and vexatious complaints, all in the name of accountability and political correctness with sanctimonious politicians often leading the call. Well, what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

        Put another way – we got a glimpse into what was being said inside no10. Now we really want to know who David Cameron or George Osbourne called ‘a pleb’… because that’s the story.

        Police for all their integrity etc, are unlikely to use pleb in average daily parliance making the word unlikely to be easily recalled or considered for use.
