It seems that Jacqui Smith is in a whole lot more bother over Police pay. Her performance so far as Home Secretary makes one hanker for, well any of her predecessors (excepting Blunkett, of course). It has emerged today that thousands of police support workers, including custody and forensic officers, have been offered a pay rise of 2.5%, backdated to September - the very payrise she has denied to serving Police officers.
David Davis comented: "This adds insult to injury. Not only has the Home Secretary been incompetent and less than straight forward with the police, her claim that restraint was required in the police pay deal has know been completely undermined."
I can't see how see how anyone could disagree with that.
