The duck-shoving over the Taser issue is simply further evidence that command of our once much-admired and respected police force, which once kept itself aloof from politics, is these days reduced to arse-licking impotence.
When the new broom takes over the levers of power within the next couple of months, the first thing it should sweep away is the commissioner and his cronies and replace them with real policemen.
George may be something of a curmudgeon, but he has a well-honed bullshit detector, and he has identified a number of araes which will be on the minds of voters on election day - he's well worth a read today.
