Hannan hits the proverbial nail on the head

The news that Jacqui Smith is U-turning on plans to allow the public to have a say in positions in local Police authorities. She's apparently done this because she fears the "politicisation" of the police force.

The best response I have thus far seen to that rather weak argument has come from fellow blogging buddy Dan Hannan on his Telegraph blog. Dan has summed it up in one little sentence.
Police chiefs are already political; they're just not elected.
Nail. Head. Lid. Coffin.
