In October 2006 a policeman called PC David Copperfield (pseudonym) received over a million hits to his blog site called Coppersblog. Coppersblog detailed a hilarious but shocking diary of life in a modern British town where teenage yobs terrorise the elderly, drunken couples brawl in front of their children and drug addicted burglars roam free.
Wasting police Time is Copperfield's hilarious and shocking diary of life as a modern British bobby. It's the first book to spill the beans about the way senior police officers waste money while fiddling the crime figures and scrambling to meet bogus Home Office targets.
Copperfield's Chief Constable won't like it and neither will the government. But honest taxpayers - sick of being fleeced while criminals rule the streets - will relish every word. Copperfield has been interviewed with his face obscured on BBC TV's Newsnight, Sky News, and this book is currently being used by the Conservative Party's shadow Home Affairs Team as they draw up policing policies for the future.
... random, and therefore frequently repetitive, ruminations and fulminations of an ordinary bobby...
