Labour thinks that the story on the police levels was all part of a cunning master plan between the Police Association, the Mayor and Mark Blumsky it seems.
It’s a pity that we only knew about the story when we read it in the paper. And considering it has been an ongoing issue for five years now, it was very cunning to start the issue back in 2000 just so one could pull it out of the drawer this week.
I see today the Hutt Police are claiming the same problem. They must be in on the conspiracy also.
UPDATE: The Dominion Post editorial is on this issue. Well worth a read.
