Is Phil Gormley Admitting Failure?

New chief constable Phil 'Gormless' has been rather busy lately setting out his stall to MSP's regarding his vision for Police Scotland.

He has said that local police commanders will be given a greater say in influencing decisions taken by Police Scotland at a national level.

Errrrm, isn't that the way it used to work? Local police taking local decisions on local matters at a local level?

In other words, what Uncle Phil seems to be saying is that policing should go back to the way it used to be before this stupid failed experiment of merging Scotland’s police service in to one massive cost cutting and inefficient one-size-fits-all force was introduced.

The only people in the country who continue to espouse the opinion that the failed new national Police Scotland experiment is a success is Police Scotland themselves.

Is it just possible that the new chief constable may be beginning to see the light?

Interesting times.
