The continuing saga of the stolen children, and then Huhne and the bailiffs dominate the Booker column. Of special interest is the story on bailiffs.

Recently, I asked of the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police whether he considered that this group of people were above the law. In the corporate view of the police, that would appear to be the case. The admit that the bailiffs can breach the law. Simply, they are prepared to do nothing about it. We are not surprised. That simply defines the battle lines, and the police are on the other side.
