Firstly to Tom Harper’s new book which I will probably treat myself to for Xmas. “Broken Yard” details many incidents which New Scotland Yard would rather forget. Not least, the murder of Daniel Morgan and the subsequent poor policing and cover up. Will Mr Harper allude to ex Det Con “Reds” Haslam, the half Jamaican, ex psychiatric patient who duped him a decade ago? Or to Ian “Walter Mitty” Hurst (Martin Ingram) of Bolton, St Nexans and Castellferro, who fooled many cogent commentators?
Now to a story that is in the headlines, David Norris, jailed for the murder of Stephen Lawrence was caught sending selfies from HMP Dartmoor. The Lawrence murder and its mishandling by the Metropolitan Police is going to loom large soon. Take note of the fitting up of Bullock, Crampton, Isley, Weedon and others who are useful targets to detract from the “Untouchables” and others.
