This is a classic scam. The surprising thing is that the police got away with it for such a long time. It's hardly a bagatelle - nearly 2M. It just shows that where there is a will there is a way which is exactly why the police should be subject to scrutiny by Trading Standards, just like a bad plumber would be caught.

In the next report there is a demonstration of how racist the police are. I cannot forget a very comic sketh in which a police officer had arrested a man for being in posession - of crinkly hair and thick lips. His senior officer was hearing him protest that he had not noticed it was a black man.

The statistics in the report cannot be denied. There is so much persecution of young blacks and so little evidence against them.
