‘Culture of incompetence & cover-up’ to stay at Met to 2024 as Dick to stay on as Commissioner

Cressida Dick: I know this is the same image as has been on This Site many times – there aren’t many Dick pics available.

The rest of us might think she’s rubbish but Priti Patel is apparently satisfied with Dame Cressida Dick’s leadership of the Metropolitan Police.

The Home Secretary has given Dick an extension to her term in charge, so her fixed-term appointment which was due to end in April 2022 will now end in 2024.

So, what do you think clinched the extra term for her?

Was it her dishonest withholding of documents from the investigation into police corruption related to the murder of Daniel Morgan, and the “institutionally corrupt” behaviour of the Met?

Was it her failure to investigate criminal allegations against Wayne Couzens, making it possible for the now-former Met police officer to kidnap, rape and murder Sarah Everard?

Was it the inherent racism in a police force that stopped and searched drivers on London’s streets because they were black?

Or the sexism in the (mis)treatment of women at a vigil for the previously-mentioned Ms Everard?

Or was it the cumulative conclusion we may draw from all the above – that Dame Dick has no regard for the due process of the law and is happy for her officers to use their uniforms as authority to commit acts of violence and repression against the public?

That may be the reason a group of high-profile victims of police corruption, malpractice and incompetence petitioned Boris Johnson to veto the lengthening of Dick’s contract.

Signatories included Baroness Lawrence (an investigation into her son Stephen’s death was shelved by Dick last year); and Lady Brittan (whose home was raided when her husband Lord Leon Brittan was falsely accused of child abuse).

Others included Alastair Morgan, the brother of Daniel, and four others affected by abuse claims: radio presenter Paul Gambaccini, former Tory MP Harvey Proctor, Edward Heath’s biographer Michael McManus and Nick Bramall, the son of Lord Bramall.

Their appeal was ignored.

Dick’s officers gave her their full support. Well they would, wouldn’t they?

    Cressida Dick is another corrupt powerful police officer willingly doing the fascist tories’ dirty work for them! As for the mundane met police boys and girls well they would support corrupt Dick because this force is rotten to the core!

    So institutional corruption will continue unchallenged within the met police force and Cressida Dick can look forward to a huge pension as reward for being a lackey of the fascist tory dictatorship!

    Perhaps she’s just Patel’s useful idiot?
