Vested Interests

Rank and file policemen are making a bit of a fuss over the prospective appointment of Tom Windsor as HM Chief Inspector of Constabulary, saying he surely needs experience as a police officer to do the job effectively.

Since the creation of the position of HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, there has not been a single serving prison officer or governor appointed to the position. Doesn't seem to have either caused a kerfuffle or been a hindrance.

Cameron himself has never had experience of leading a country before being appointed PM - mind you, some would say he's a dismal failure.

Windsor has experience as a regulator, and what is the Chief Inspector of Constabulary if not a regulator?

Excuse me, I have to go; I think there's an American drone circling overhead.
