Brown 'Reheats' Neighbourhood Police Announcement
The government spin machine went into overdrive yesterday with the announcement of a "new" neighbourhood policing plan. All the TV and newspaper outlets lapped it up. Only it wasn't new at all. It is part of a government programme which has been rolled out since 2005, when it was first announced. These new neighbourhhod police teams are already inexistence (eg HERE). Why does the media always going along with these 'reheated' announcements?
