The future of under-fire Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair is due to be decided.

Members of London's police watchdog are to hold a vote of confidence in the UK's most senior officer.

The extraordinary meeting of the Metropolitan Police Authority's 23 members is the most important since its inception in 2000.

It follows the conviction of the force for breaching health and safety laws over the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes in 2005.

An Old Bailey jury found the Metropolitan Police endangered the public as officers hunted on-the-run suicide bombers in the aftermath of the failed July 21 attacks.

It will be difficult for Home Secretary Jacqui Smith to continue her unstinting support of Sir Ian if he loses the vote.
I think he's for the chop.
Here's hoping although I won't hold my breath... people in power always seem to stick around longer than they should :roll:

I think he should go because he has allowed IMO the Met to become a political force.
He'll get the chop - Broone and his Darling needs some of the heat in the media taken off of his arrse.

There is nothing right or honourable about him.
IB was very much a crony of TB, so I reckon he'll go if there's no immediate political damage to Gordy in ousting him.

'Bout feckin time, too. We need coppers running Police forces, not Politicians.
With any luck this leftie excuse of a policeman will be gone shortly.

I bet he gets a right royal pay-off at the expense of the taxpayers,though.

Then there will be the book..........

A coloumn in the gaurdian,etc,etc....

Being a failure pays well in Britan.
If he does go, it will be sideways rather than out. Such is Neue Liabour Partei

You are talking about Blair aren't you?

So Blair says "I saw the IRA gumen get out of the car and the IRA gunmen fired at me", when the truth is he didn't see the IRA gunmen get out of the car and they didn't fire at him.....liar liar pants on fire....

Mnay thanks Josey Wales.
Tony Blair and Ian Blair, very well suited friends in every respect it would seem. Liars clearly attract each other.
Its a bl**dy disgrace that two such low lifes ever acheived any position in public life at all. One's f*cked the country and the other the capital's police force. Brace of b*st*rds.
Just heard on the radio he's survived the vote! Un-feckin-believable!
