There's a message in there somewhere to those who oversee the Metropolitan Police force. It will be ignored of course because the present culture is too deeply embedded.
A few weeks ago I fleetingly thought the phone hacking scandal would have had a strong enough effect to cause change within the organisation, but now the issue has been dropped by the MSM, the braided and overpaid will resume 'normal' service. Sighs of relief all round within the upper echelons of the Met no doubt.
