Dear Diary - What a Day !!

Legs Taken - by whom ??

I do feel sorry for Sir Ian Blair as I don't like to see anybody get their legs done. He has been correct and honourable in offering his resignation today. I was somewhat shocked how quickly this came about, but not totally surprised. It was only a matter of time in light of the drip drip bad press and poison at the top table.

You can't blame the mayor who has made a decision, that he couldn't work with the commissioner. It's just a shame that Sir Ian couldn't do the same with his management team. Something had to give and unfortunately the top man has paid the price. Somebody at the yard has blood on their hands.

Let's hope somebody gets a grip and a few more from the top table are moved on too. Whoever get's the job and I hope it's Sir Hugh ORDE (Top Bloke), they should be allowed to build their own team around them.

Respected - Sir Hugh

I'm not saying it's not fair - I think the mayor has made a decision for the good of London.

"Take Outs" don't look good - I've seen PC's take other PC's - PC's take Sgts and Insps but I don't expect to see it at the top.

Ian Blair should have gone after Stockwell.

First-time reader. Like the look of it and adding you to my regular blog-read list (when i get time these days!).

Stressed Out Cop said...

Not your cup of tea then! and there are issues in his personal life - but I like him.

At least we can agree to dislike Gerry Adams and co.

Bless you Sir - just therapy and hopefully not too much ranting.

Got to be careful, the temptation to post "scoop" stories is intense.
