Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary wrote it, so it’s a serious critique. Ive chosen the Times rather than the Guardian, because the Guardian is usually critical of the police. Note that at the end of the article the Times continues the Tory attack on ACPO. Guardian defends the right to demonstrate. Times and Telegraph attack ACPO. Those are the not so hidden agendas, that should be borne in mind. Both, may of course, be correct.
