Metropolitan Police Commissioner slams the Home Office, the Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Ministers, Shadow Ministers and just about everyone else

The Metropolitan Police Authority is in session and Deputy Mayor Kit Malthouse AM is in the Chair.  Sir Paul Stephenson, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, is answering questions on his report and he has taken the opportunity to say:

“Phrases like ‘front-line policing’ are designed to mislead.”

He is clearly refreshed by his period away and ready to take on the Home Office, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Ministers, Shadow Ministers and plenty of others – all of whom have used the phrase in recent months.

  1. I always despised that phrase “front line policing”. As denizens of Brixton know, plod are too cowardly to enlist in the amry thus use quasi-military terms such as “civilian” and “officer”. WTF?
