It's starting to come out that the police lobbied to MPs to increase their powers. It's worrying enough that businesses do this, but the police? Although the story has not become clear, what we've heard so far sounds like the police need to be seriously restricted in how much they can get involved in politics, for an organisation tasked with and so concerned with fighting terrorists, how much money have the police spent unsuccesfully trying to encourage politicians to increase their powers?

One might suggest that the main political parties have got so concerned with appearing tough on crime that the police feel it's now down to how tightly they can squeeze them for cash.
