"It was disclosed earlier today that an inquiry into Scotland Yard contracts awarded to a close friend of Sir Ian had uncovered one deal which had not involved a tendering process.
The so-called âvanity contractâ, to promote the commissionerâs image when he took over from Lord Stevens of Kirkwhelpington, was worth Â£15,000 to Impact Plus, a consultancy run by Andy Miller, a longtime friend of Sir Ian.
The award of Â£3 million of contracts to Impact Plus is under investigation by a team of officers led by Sir Ronnie Flanagan, HM Chief Inspector of Constabulary."
I would never suggest or imply that he has done anything wrong.
Saying that, there have been examples of public servants under investigation resigning to either, bring about an end to investigation, or preserve pension rights should it all go t*t* up.
