Broken Britain & Policing

Privacy Matters …

Last week, I was in Manchester. Whilst out with my dear old friend Keith, we got talking to some guys. One of them asked me “were you on BBC Breakfast recently”. Oh the shame, I thought. He was right, but just the wrong channel. He meant ITV Daybreak, which I was on, a couple of…

A Third Trial against the Met

I received a Court Order yesterday, confirming that the third tribunal involving the Metropolitan Police Commissioner and I will take place at the beginning of 2014.
