The truth will out

I’ve lost count of the times that the Home Secretary has denied on TV, radio and in the press that there is a shoot-to-kill policy against suspected terrorists in London. Today, it has been revealed that the head of the Metropolitan Police, Sir Ian Blair, has effectively curtailed the investigation into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes at Stockwell tube station. In a letter he wrote to the Home Office explaining his reasons for this, he said:

Put simply, the only choice an officer may have may be to shoot to kill…

Will the Home Secretary now admit that there is a shoot-to-kill policy? Will Sir Ian stand down? Will the IPCC now be allowed to carry out a proper investigation?
Somehow, I get the feeling that we’re looking at no, no and no again.

  1. You must realise that, for all his expensive education at Christ Church, Oxford. SIr Ian Blair is dumber than an ox. he also has to protect the likes of Clarke who is in charge of terrorists at the Yard.

    When you consider the ease with which people ascend, HOC, Buck House, 10 Dwning St (South Face route) etc., it’s a wonder that there are not more corpses littering the streets of London.

    Anyway they have uncovered a massage parlour in Birmingham today employing girls to do all sorts of naughty things – wow ! Just as well Sky TV were there with snappers etc from all the press to catch the magic moment.

    Nice to see PC PLod get his priorities in order.
