Newburn, Tim (2011) The phone hacking scandal shows that our system of police governance is in urgent need of root and branch review. British Politics and Policy at LSE (28 Jul 2011) Blog Entry.

Others look vulnerable and this crisis has some way to run yet. Tim Newburn argues that there is an absence of a clear and coherent system of police accountability, and that police governance is in urgent need of reform.
