Time for the spinning to stop

The Metropolitan Police have been accused of misleading their own "watchdog", the Metropolitan Police Authority, according to the Guardian.

The Met's report to the MPA said that people caught up in "kettling", were free to leave "wherever possible". Presumably it wasn't possible very often. The Met also claimed that kettling was an effective tactic, so it appears that it would only be possible to let people out if they chose not to use it. As LibDem David Howarth said:
"It is time for the spinning to stop"
