Working Together For A Safer London
A researcher named Tracy Clarke was supposed to research the sergeant's statement for the inquiry into Patel-Nasri's murder, but was unable to gain access to any of the anti-corruption files, "because it would take the Met down a corruption route it had covered up", she claims uncharitably. Last month Clarke made a formal complaint to the Metropolitan Police Authority and, for all the good it will do, to the London Haystack as well. "What happened to the senior officer?" she asked. "I would suggest absolutely nothing. While vast sums of money are spent on justifying the existence of the anti-corruption command this is just one more piece of evidence where a blind eye is turned, rather than have the Metropolitan Police Service discredited." Well, really. As if Sir Ian Blair or the Metropolitan Police would dream of trying to cover anything up.
