It was with a sense of incredulity that I read (Prosecutors Won’t Take Up Case Against Police Boss, Herne Bay Gazette, February 26) that the Independent Police Complaints Commission had determined police commissioner Ann Barnes ‘may’ have committed an insurance offence crime. Either she did or didn’t drive with proper insurance cover. How can there be any room for ambiguity? If she didn’t have the necessary cover why isn’t she not being prosecuted? So the Crown Prosecution Service considers that it would ‘not be in the best interest to prosecute’. Not in who’s best interest? Clearly Mrs Barnes’s! Could this be another example of us not all being in it together?
