Zip It - Quick

The Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner, head of Specialist Operations at Scotland Yard did not it would appear respect the age-old adage - engage brain before opening mouth; according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

Leaving aside the Conservative Party cries of 'foul', none of which actually mention the real cause for complaint which is - what is an unelected officer of the police doing passing comment on political matters. He should remember he is a public servant and as such should keep his ideas, half-baked or otherwise, to himself.

Whether it is right that, again as reported, he should allow a company to be run from his private home is another matter and is neither here nor there in respect of the central complaint of this post.

Had this police officer been elected I would have no complaint as at least I would have had the opportunity of registering my opposition to his attempt to fill a post for which he demonstrates a clear lack of suitability.
