Metropolitan Police

Live in England but only speak English? You can no longer become a cop.

All new constables in the Metropolitan police must be able to speak a second language apart from English from today.

The astonishing requirement emerged in an advert for fresh recruits posted online by the country’s biggest force.

Does anyone else think Chris Cairns has become the Lance Armstrong of NZ?

Seriously, I watched Chris Cairns arrival at the airport and his sanctimonious pontification and trite speechifying…and I immediately thought of Lance Armstrong, denying the obvious despite whistleblowers and fellow cheats telling all.

Chris Cairns has returned to New Zealand full of defiance, but might have another fight on his hands with the England and Wales Cricket Board investigating whether they can lay charges against him.

The former New Zealand all-rounder held a press conference at Auckland Airport upon his return from London. He read from a prepared statement and did not take questions as he left to spend “time with my family”.

He said he had been interviewed by the Metropolitan Police, the ICC’s anti-corruption and security unit (ACSU) and the ECB.

“At my own request, I was interviewed by representatives of Metropolitan Police, the ECB and the ICC anti-corruption unit,” Cairns said yesterday. “This is in relation to an allegation I perjured myself at the trial Cairns v Modi in 2012, and separate allegations by the ICC’s anti-corruption unit that I am a match-fixer. I was not arrested or otherwise detained in London and I have not been charged with any offence, criminal or otherwise.”

I wonder what Colin Craig think about this

Colin Craig isn’t sure about chemtrails, also the moon landings and is unsure about the evidence of 9/11…I wonder what he thinks about Diana’s death?

Could the SAS have been involved?

The Metropolitan Police have dismissed new claims about the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and say there is no basis to reopen a murder inquiry.

There is “no credible evidence” that the SAS was involved in the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, the Metropolitan Police are to announce.

For the last four months specialist detectives have been examining new claims that a member of the British Army’s elite special forces regiment was involved in the death of the Princess more than 16 years ago, and the Metropolitan Police is due to announce the findings on Tuesday.   Read more »

New Rule for Undercover Cops

No rooting hippy chicks because they weren’t into free love at all. They wanted commitment.

A group of women have launched landmark court action against Britain’s biggest police force, claiming they were duped into forming long-term relationships with undercover policemen.

The eight women, who have not been named, claim to have suffered emotional pain and trauma from the men who “deliberately and knowingly deceived” them for up to nine years.

They claim they became “deeply emotionally attached” with the unnamed officers who had concealed their identities, according to legal papers sent to police.

Reports claimed Mark Kennedy, an undercover policeman who infiltrated the environment movement for several years, had relationships with three of the women.

Last night the Metropolitan Police said it was considering a letter from their lawyers.
