Jacqui Smith is, in my view, the worst Home Secretary in living memory.

She is to be condemned most strongly for reneging on policy pay, making cuts to the Probation Service, and seems to have done nothing to cut crime in England and Wales.

The Home Secretary is back on her high horse once again, by stating that she will not allow the Mayor of London to choose a successor to Sir Ian Blair, who resigned recently from being the commissioner of the Metropolitan Police.

I am extremely angry at the Home Secretary's high-handed attitude for I feel the Boris Johnson is far more capable of choosing the new police commissioner as, in my opinion, Mrs Smith knows nothing about the needs of London's residents and those of our police force.
