"There is going to be blood," strong and emotive words spoken by nearly retired Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom at a Rotary function in Rhyl over the weekend and reported by Wales Online.
The contempt being shown to the public by MPs beggars belief and I am thinking of asking the editor of The Daily Telegraph if he has any evidence of law-breaking involving any MPs in North Wales.

There has been talk of funding private prosecutions and bloody well right, too.

There is going to be blood. This is an issue of such magnitude and public importance that the police should be taking a positive interest in what is emerging.

Yes Brunstrom is as annoyed as the rest of us over the MP's expenses saga but to use the words "There is going to be blood," is a bit over the top and far too emotive it conveyes the wrong message, the use of the word 'blood' could be linked to violence and the last thing we want is a Chief Constable saying such things; after all Enoch Powell's 'Rivers of Blood' speech still resonates today. Calm and common sense is what is required not inflammatory speeches from so called responsible people who should know better.

what a pl*nker this man is!!

He has no subtlety or gravitas, just jumps in with both feet, wanting to draw yet more attention to himself!

Best if he carried out his threat to retire and sail on his yacht over the horizon.

Good riddance!
