Jack Inflammatory Straw Disses Da Cops

BBC News - Jack Straw 'sceptical' about overworked police

Oh, you just couldn't make it up!
Justice Secretary Jack Straw has told the BBC he is "sceptical" about claims by some police that they are overworked and spend hours filling in forms.

He said some officers "quite enjoy" being in the station "in the warm" and some forces did better than others.

Often the difference was due, not to resources, but to the "discipline and culture" within the force, he said.

But the Police Federation, which represents officers, said the remarks were "irresponsible and inflammatory".
PD James interviewed Straw this morning on the Today programme.
