#MetPolice confirm role as #ToryPoodles by refusing to investigate #DowningStreetParty

Bent copper? Cressida Dick only has her job as long as Parliament approves of her, it seems. Her recent decisions certainly suggest she is more interested in keeping her job than doing it.

The Metropolitan Police will not, absolutely won’t, no, nay, not now, not soon, investigate any party in 10 Downing Street last December while London was in Tier 3 lockdown because of an “absence of evidence”.


Because people actually talking on a video clip about the party that took place in 10 Downing Street on December 18 last year couldn’t possibly be evidence.

Because they have no witnesses, certainly not all the people talking on the video clip and all the people on the list of those who signed in and out of 10 Downing Street on that evening – a Friday evening in late December, let’s remember, in front of police officers who must have been able to tell if there was alcohol on their breath.

Because the police never investigate crimes that took place a year ago – except for all those crimes they investigated that took place more than a year previously, according to former Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer.

And after all, they haven’t prosecuted anybody else – who isn’t involved in the government – for having parties that weren’t allowed last year, apart from all those families they’ve prosecuted and fined for having parties that weren’t allowed last year.

In the words of Starmer, this is bullshit.

It seems clear that the police are avoiding any action because they don’t want to prosecute people in the government; once again I am proved right in saying that Boris Johnson and his cronies really are above the law.

I hope that it creates huge problems for the police in the future. Obviously nobody who, in the future, talks about a crime can be considered to have provided evidence that it took place – especially if such conversation is recorded on video or by another recording device. That’ll make it quite hard for police to use recordings from interviews with suspects.

Oh, and it will be hard to use documentary evidence after that list of 10 Downing Street party attendees disappeared; if police lose information so easily, it will be hard to believe in any documents they manage to produce.

All of the above suggests that James O’Brien was right when he tweeted that Met Commissioner Cressida Dick is more interested in keeping her job than in doing it.
