This tweet from Blair Gibbs merits a full explanation and apology.
Policy Exchange are reputedly the favourite think tank of the Prime Minister, David Cameron. Does he share the views expressed by Blair Gibbs in this tweet?
Do the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners believe the views expressed are acceptable? Until there is full explanation and apology will they along with the Association of Police Authorities insist that the police service does not interact with Policy Exchange?
The Police Federation of England & Wales have made it clear they believe that the Ill-judged tweet calls into question the influence of think tanks on government policy.
Have the Prime Minister and the Police Minister developed Laryngitis?
