I have no view of the cash-for-peerages row, other than being certain that it has been going on in one form or another for very many years, but can I just question if it was really necessary to arrest a Downing Street apparatchik at 6.30 a.m., and to send no fewer than four officers to do it? Were the police afraid that she would attack just a single officer? Were they afraid that she would flee to a country with no extradition arrangements with the UK? What was wrong with asking her to attend the police station by appointment?
I am afraid that this is yet another example of the police carrying out their duty with one eye on the media to see how it will play. Unprofessional, lads. You can do better than that.
