Ah, go on, I'll give you 3 guesses......

I think it's very unlikely that they bought it, my guess would be that it's on loan.

Chief Constables are very important people who sit in meetings all day dreaming up even more fantastic ways to waste money.

I think that is a top idea and a good way forward for the police… have you seen the size of your average traffic cop? Have you ever tried getting in and out of these?
And where do they stick the traffic cones ??? I have a idea.

Besides I bet they deprecate less than a Astra

In Swansea they have an unmarked Honda Civic Type R and a Mitsubishi Evo VIII both in black. They also have several expensive BMWs and Merc estates not to mention a new Range Rover and a Lexus 4x4 - oh and a Disco III and a BMW X5. They are most certainly NOT loan cars!!!

They also have a nice shiny helicopter that costs £5,000,000 a year.

Unfortunately the force is very short of money so they can't afford to have enough police on the streets. They refused to investigate an attempted break in at my house Christmas time as it would cost too much money!!!

And they wonder why people have no respect for them at all any more.........
