Nuking Hayman While The Sun Shines
Listening to the IPCC press conference on the Met's handling of the aftermath of the shooting on 22/7/2005 as I type - Killer of the Yard is let off because he convinced the IPCC that he'd been kept in the dark by his own senior team. This is hardly reassuring. Andy 'Dodgy Dossier' Hayman, already on our shit list because of his involvement in the 90 days debacle, is given both barrels, in so far as the IPCC has any barrels. Basically he seems to have lied and if he doesn't lose his job over this I'll eat my hat. I've got the knife and fork ready, however - the history of holding the Senior Knackers to account isn't greatly encouraging.
There's a classic bit about the News of the World interview with Sir Ian Blair, which blatantly misquoted him. The IPCC were rather critical of him taking time off to give interviews to tabloids, but it's so in character for the man.
