Sir Hugh Orde, president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, attacked City Hall Conservatives for suggesting they now had their hands on the tiller in London. Deputy mayor Kit Malthouse prompted a backlash last week when he came up with the phrase and suggested policing should be put under political control just as health and education were. Sir Hugh said chief constables were united in opposing the politicisation of their forces, declaring that maintaining law and order was far too important to be used as a political football. He also slammed Tory plans for elected police commissioners, warning the proposals could result in lunatics or the BNP in charge of policing. When asked on BBC1s Andrew Marr programme about Mr Malthouses remarks, Sir Hugh replied: I find it entirely unacceptable from a professional police officers point of view, and I know I can speak with absolute clarity for all 44 chiefs in this country. Today Sir Hugh stepped up his attacks, calling on the Tory party to explain how it plans to alter the leadership of police forces should it win the next election. The Mayors office refused to comment on the criticism.

Perfectbook todipinto... 10klegalbillover poisonousblog PONE of Londons most outspoken politicians faces censure and a 10,000 legal bill after describing a blogger as an obsessive, poisonous individual in an email. Brian Coleman, Tory chairman of the London fire authority and mayor of Barnet, made the comment after Roger Tichborne described him on his blog as arrogant, lazy and useless and addicted to cash and hospitality. Tichborne complained and Coleman could be held in breach of Barnets code of conduct. PGORDON BROWNS key spending strategy was mired in confusion today amid reports that health and overseas aid could be subject to cuts. Claims that Labour will expose even such sensitive areas as the NHS to a programme of public spending cuts caused consternation at Westminster and Whitehall. There were signs of divisions, with some Whitehall departments expressing uncertainty about whether Mr Browns promise to maintain health spending in full will hold to the next election. It came as the Prime Ministers leadership was increasingly being questioned by Labour MPs and ministers. In a speech tomorrow, Dagenham MP and influential Left- winger Jon Cruddas will argue that Labour has completely failed to lay a glove on David Cameron. Mr Cruddas will say: We have only months to get this right, otherwise we will go down to a catastrophic defeat. An opinion poll today put Mr Cameron on 40 per cent to Labours 27.Struggle: Mr Brown Im doing this to be normal -- Harry Potter star eMMa waTSOn, left, on wHy sHe Has turned Her back on acting to study englisH at university Ive got tree trunk legs and my pants keep splitting -- criMewatcH Presenter raV wilding keePs bursting out of His costuMe on strictly coMe dancing I sound like a bag of kittens thrown down the staircase -- JOHn lydOn reveals His current vocal condition as He PrePares t0 re-forM His band Public iMage ltd diSTriBUTiOn HelPline: If you have any comments about the distribution of London Lite, ring 020 7651 5276, or email On the Tube JOURNEY PLANNER For the easiest way to get around london visit uk and click on Journey Planner london travel information call 020 7222 1234 24-hours Textphone 020 7918 3015 Travel alerts receive free real-time travel info on your mobile or email, subscribe at uk/travelalerts for more information on oyster, visit lU Customer services for inquiries, call 0845 330 9880 between 8am and 8pm daily Congestion charging for payment details call 0845 900 1234 or visit cclondon. com london Travelwatch call 020 7505 9000 or visit londontravel Roadwatch elephant and Castle roundabout: works at the junction of new kent road Portland Place: works, junct new cavendish st. edgware rd: lights out junction of aberdeen Place.
