Hullo, hullo, hullo

If I wanted to establish a single Scottish police force, I wouldn't make a song and dance about it like the SNP. The Scotsman reports:
A SINGLE national police force is to be created in Scotland amid claims that the Scottish Government is "hell-bent" on ignoring public opinion on the issue.
The proposals will be at the heart of the SNP government's legislative programme later this year and comes despite overwhelming opposition to the idea in a recent consultation.
No, I would quietly and gradually transfer functions and resources to those bodies which are already national in character, such as the the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency. The regional forces would simply be left to wither on the vine, until such time as no-one cared about their disappearance.

Cynical? Perhaps ...
