Labour Embarrassed as Con-Man Poses with Police Chief

The LutonOnSunday reports today that a Labour councillor, Asa Rathore, "regrets not telling Chief Superintendent Mike Colbourne, Bedfordshire's Divisional Commander, he was being filmed with Ahmed Siddique .. convicted in 2009 of obtaining more than £160,000 through fraudulent activities" Labour Party organiser Francis Steer said, 'In my opinion Cllr Rathore was very unwise to allow herself and Ahmed Siddique who has been convicted of fraud, to pose for a photo with Chief Superindendent Mike Colbourne".

I suppose we're in for lots of stories like this from the press in the build up to the Police Commissioner elections. I agree that politics and police shouldn't be mixed.
