Why cannot we have these briefers NAMED as in the US. This silly game of trteating the Press Officer as if he was head of MI5 is a joke

I did not know the police were supposed to be a political opposition to the government. I thought they were supposed to be out of the political sphere entirely. Is this a pledge from Tory A-lister that David Cameron supports political police?

I'm sure he IS a joke. Whether or not he's also running MI5, I'm not totally sure but, under Blair, who knows?

It's clearly the Labour line for the day, as I heard a Labour MP interviewed on this on 5 Live driving the same point very hard. Presumably the tactic is designed to discredit the whole police enquiry.
