You Can't Fight In Here, This Is The War Room.
In any list of obnoxious TINOs, Stephen Norris is a dead cert for a top ten place, which makes it all the more amazing that he's the one who's broken one of the central taboos of modern British politics: namely, mentioning that the folks who draw up the crime figures are the spiritual children of Robert Maxwell rather than Sir Robert Peel.
Meanwhile, in related news, Sock Puppet has been disgracing himself again:
Met Police chief Sir John Stevens has asked candidates not to exploit fear of crime during the election campaign.
Or, to translate into English, Sock Puppet would rather that an election campaign didn't focus on his party's utter failure to carry out one of the central roles of government. We're choosing who runs the government, but we shouldn't consider little stuff like a demonstrable record of incompetence in running government.
