Sir Walter Blair

It seems that the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police is a walt.

He’s been exaggerating his very peripheral involvement in the Balcombe Street siege in 1975 when he was a junior constable, claiming that he came under fire from the PIRA terrorists, when in fact he was nowhere near the shooting.

Link here.

Time to transpose the vowels in his surname, methinks.

More than an exaggeration - it's a downright lie.

Really, it is only to be expected from a man who would climb over his drowning grandmother, in order to knife his mother in the back if it meant career advancement.

But yesterday Sir Ian said he too had briefly joined the chase after encountering the IRA car in Park Street near the original shooting. "We turned into Park Street and there were two or three vehicles in front of us going extremely fast." He believed one was the "bandit car" and another may have been a taxi but Sir Ian and his sergeant were not able to keep up "because we were driving a Hillman Hunter which has a top speed of 25mph minus".
The top speed of the least powerful Hillman Hunter in 1975 was 83mph and the top speed of a 70s-era taxi was 60mph. These details may be academic, according to Mr Purnell. Asked about Sir Ian's latest account of the pursuit last night he said: "There was no chase. It was just going along at a normal speed. [The IRA men] actually said later they didn't know they were being followed."
and we should believe this Billy Bullshitters accounts of what happened at Stockwell tube station etc...?

Sound like exactly the kind of policeman this government should be relying on to inform security policy.

Tell whatever porkies he has to to get where he wants to go, sounds suspiciously familiar.

Typical glory seeking lying barsteward.

Incidentally, my Hillman Hunter never reached anywhere NEAR 83mph and it wasn't for the lack of trying.

Not the only 'Walt' Bliar in a high place.

Yet again we have a severely discredited man in a senior position. I don't know, but I strongly suspect that the shared surname is not the only link between this bad advert for the 'Met' and the bad advert for politics - T.Bliar.

Why can't we always have real top policemen like Sir Kenneth Newman and not these dreadful Neu Arbeit placemen ?

BRING ON THE GENERAL ELECTION.
