PLUG POLICE LEAKS.

IT is perfectly possible that Muslim extremists in Birmingham plotted to kidnap and kill a British soldier.

It is also possible that Tony Blair sold honours to bolster Party funds and is covering up.

But how do we know of these alleged crimes? Because the police told us.

Hang on a minute. That is not their job. Their job is to catch criminals, gather the evidence and pass it on to the Crown Prosecution Service.

It is not their job to rehearse a possible court case by boasting of their exploits to the media.

How can Lord Levy, the PM or his sidekicks get a fair trial after the torrent of leaks from the Metropolitan Police probe?

How can the Muslim men arrested in Birmingham get a fair trial after chapter and verse of their alleged crimes were leaked?

The police are getting above themselves. The power given them to levy instant justice for petty crime on the streets has gone to their heads.

Where is our loquacious Home Secretary when you need him?

THE policewoman who curtsied to Tony Blair on a royal (sorry, "presidential") visit to Plymouth last week did it for a pounds 5 bet with a fellow copper. So, this is what our police have come to.
