Assistant Commissioner Budge's guide to pursuing criminals involves the highly subjective "Budge" test.

Cover something up for long enough, have the right connections, let the offence go "stale" and - at least according to Assistant Commissioner Budge - you're off scot-free.  Home and hosed.

Really Assistant Commissioner?

Does the Budge test apply to child sex offenders?  Murderers?

Golf-course-Gary (that's him, second from the left on a "course" for the day) might think about criminals that way but Dave McAlpine and I don't.

This doesn't end here.

Every touch leaves its trace Gary - even hard to budge stale old buggers.
