I do not usually quote the Grauniad (not since North Wales Police paid David Conn, anyway) but today is different.
Along with Holroyde and Rafferty, Mitting is totally bent. Plebgate proved as much, yet now we see the fatally flawed Spycops inquiry, also deeply implicated. There is zero public trust in mired and corrupt figures such as Mitting. One needs only to examine his role in protecting perjurers involved in SHAC to see how compromised he is. Next month will see his swan song, the Court of Appeal looms large across New Scotland Yard. Pass the kleenex, Cressida Dick.
