Is this man fit to be a leader of our Police?
Mr Quick initially alleged in an interview with the Press Association that the "Tory machinery and their press friends" were opposing the investigation "in a wholly corrupt way" but later issued a retraction.
Have you noticed how fat people get when they are at the top of the public servant pile? He even looks like Jacqui Smith. That is the face of a man who has little regard for his body except when it comes to his mouth. (Update, lest my dear readers think I am fattist...I don't mind if people are fat and/or can't be bothered with their bodies..I just object to paying for it..). At least the Beast of Clerkenwell supports his own massive girth with flogging what he can to whomsoever he can...
Looks like Boris was right and the politicisation has gone viral.
Gorgeous blues posted below if you need cheering.
Update: Comment from Ranter on Iain Dale
'Fat Bob' is a prime example of over promotion.
A good Ds and DI maybe a DCI but from then on a few Bramshill Courses, an attachment to the FBI, a degree or MA paid for in 'The Jobs' time, then a bit of butterflying from force to force, rank to rank and they actually believe their own publicity. Programmed robots who leave their own common sense and experience behind as they crawl and grovel up the ladder. They all speak like programmed clones. They are all the same. 'Fat Bob, 'Cress', the hierarchy at the Yard spend all their time chasing the next rank and discuss who is going after what job or appointment. They should actually spend some time being good at their bloody jobs. In fact there really is no need to have all these senior ranks at all. Most of the operational front line work is done by DCI's downwards. What on earth do the Met need all those DAC's and Commanders, and chief supers and supers for? We really do need a Royal Commission into policing, let alone all these separate cries for various independant public enquiries for the ever growing and seemingly continuous cock-ups! Trouble is I'm not sure the climate is right for a Royal Commission - who would set the agenda?
Quick should at least ask to be reassigned before being moved by the perma-tanned Sir Paul Stephenson. He should also carefully consider his future - might be a good time to retire and take over the car business.
