Bungs and The Bill

A Parliamentary Committee has deplored the common police practice of tipping off the press about anyone famous who comes under investigation, which is why we so often see police raids shadowed by camera crews. I seem to recall that the Editor of The Sun admitted to MPs a while ago that her paper pays police officers for information.
It's corruption, pure and simple. A tip-off is worth a 'drink', a major scoop is worth a 'bloody good drink'. Will anyone do anything to stop it? What do you think?
