Today's Scotland on Sunday has an editorial that criticises Commissioner Sir Ian Blair.

The most flagrant example of the culture of complacency is the man in the most crucial position: Sir Ian Blair, Metropolitan Police chief. He is typical of the New Labour brand of police officers, marinaded in political correctness and better equipped to run diversity awareness courses than to conduct a war on terror. Last Thursday he was babbling knee-jerk responses over the airwaves when he should have been at the sharp end of things, spearheading a hunt for murderers. The public can have no confidence in Sir Ian Blair: he should go, making way for some hard-nosed copper with anti-terrorist experience and a true sense of priorities.
The Met and others did very well on Thursday and will continue to do well as the investigation into the bombings progresses. However perhaps the Met could do better with a real life ‘Burnside’ at the helm and London and the rest of UK would benefit.

Ian Blair is little more than a T Blair and MCB mouthpiece an embarrassment to real policemen and women. He is a product of Tosser "do gooder" Blairs anti British labour party.

I get the impression that the hierarchy within the police service is roundly despised by frontline officers, who have to bear the brunt of the cost-cutting and shortcut decisions made by them.

is it not the same in the army??

We bear the brunt of the tight fistedness from the government on defence. How can it be that year on year the Germans spend more on deffence than we do yet they have not been on any real ops in 60 years.
