It didnt take long did it? I see from last weeks national news that one of our new Police Commissars (sic) is leading from the front when it comes to fitting his snout into the trough of taxpayers money. Along with dodgy expense claims we see a man prepared to see staff thrown to the boys in blue for daring to expose this shameless proclivity of the new political classes who turn our pockets out at each and every opportunity. Then there is the empire building as shown in the jobs columns of the local papers. Head of Commissioning blah, blah, blah, at a cool £48 thou plus a Communications officer at £30 thou. As our local commissar is already on £65 thou and his car at £23 thou, a mere snip; I presume this new gauleiter has offices and a secretary already? As Charlie Bronson in The Magnificent Seven said, when asked to join the Seven replied, Yeah! I cost a lot! Perhaps Richard Rhodes the Police & Crime Commisar for Cumbria Police might do the decent thing and fall on his sword.....but I doubt it.
