    Excellent and, to the layman, an extremely justified rant.

    And if forensic audit resources are still being slashed, that may explain quite a proportion of the mould which appears to have been creeping through and infecting the MPS management since your time.

    It might only have needed those 9 to have been retained and supported, to keep the weeds under control then. Once allowed instead to fester and spread further, they would very soon have required far more resources to reverse.

    Alan Wright may represent our real Hans Brinker (or his fictional counterpart, http://www.howstuffworks.com/the-little-dutch-boy-story1.htm) had they listened then instead of scorned. It was a stitch up.

    Yet, just a stitch at that time may well have saved those 9. And those 9 could have kept corruption in check. And had corruption not infiltrated so many by now,. might even BHH occasionally feel free to smile (now that would be an achievement)?

    And so history repeats, as we appear to be at an equivalent crossroad today.

    Will honest officers be listened to in this new millennium, in the 21st century?

    The hell they will, if the current Met management continue to have their wily way with us.

    It’s enough to make you angry all right..

    • I believe that the 9 are now 3, maybe 4/5, but no more.

      I am out of touch since they were swallowed up by the Mayor’s office, but I do know that numbers have been reduced by Natural Wastage (I believe)

      Bearing in mind the fact that we always saved/recovered more than we cost, a short-sighted strategy I would suggest
