Policing the Police

North Wales Police Authority has rejected the Government's plans for a single all-Wales police force. South Wales, Gwent and Dyfed Powys are due to follow suit. Yet Peter Hain is adamant that a deal will be reached by Friday.

Either he knows something we don't or he is seriously deluding himself. If the Government wants this merger then they are going to have to force it upon the four police authorities and pray that the subsequent hike in Council Tax does not undermine the whole project. This is a no-win situation for the Labour Government and the Secretary of State for Wales knows it.
