HOW police works, with Lord Ian Blair, billed at the foot of his column in the Times as “a former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, 2005-08, a crossbench peer and chairman of BlueLight Global Solutions”.

His column is entitled :

He writes:

“The scaremongering must stop: this is not police privatisation but a chance to stop wasting expensive officers’ time.”
