See amazon.co.uk for description and real reviews. The 5 stars is for his blog since I haven't read his book yet.
Welcome to Modern Britain - a country where you can be arrested for pinching a few crisps from a schoolfriend, throwing cream cakes or denying the existence of Santa Claus - while burglars, muggers and drug dealers go about their business unmolested by the forces of law and order.
Two years on from the ground-breaking 'Wasting Police Time' and 'Diary of an On Call Girl', the trilogy is complete - as the most senior police officer to date breaks ranks to tell the shocking truth about the collapse of the country's criminal justice system.
'Inspector Gadget' - writing anonymously for fear of the sack - tells how things have got worse, not better.
More targets, more paperwork and more lunacy... as the government and senior police officers pretend everything's OK.
With access to statistics about frontline police strength (much lower than you think), exclusive inside information and detailed analysis, Inspector Gadget reveals how bad things really are. Controversial, gripping, authoritative and, occasionally, very funny - this book takes readers where the powers-that-be don't want them to go.
