Britain's most controversial police chief is under fire again for spending police funds on a bardic chair for a poetry prize.The public aren't amused:
The prestigious chair for this year's Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales cost £3,450 with another £750 given as prize money for the winning poet at the festival, being held at Bala in August.
Mr Roberts, who is Welsh-speaking, added : 'As a Welshman I fail to see why there should be a police involvement with a wooden bardic chair, even if the chief is a bard of the Eisteddfod.At least, in Bournemouth, the public can be satisfied at the sight of their police cracking down on crime...
'If he really wants to leave his mark on the Welsh language before he finishes in his job then the money could come out of his own pocket.
'Police should be fighting crime, not getting involved with chairs.
