Stockwell II: The Return of the Cover-up

Apparently we're supposed to believe that Ian Blair was totally ignorant about the chaos and misinformation spread by the Met in the aftermath of the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes at Stockwell station. Either someone's lying or that's a heck of a way to run a police force. Still, hands up who really thought someone would take the blame and get punished? After all it was only Jonathan Foreigner wot got shot.

The full Stockwell Two report is here, a short list of questions and answers is here (
note the instructions for the subs at the top of page 2 - very professional).

You can imagine the conversation between Hayman and Blair. I bet it went along the lines of "I expect and demand loyalty: fall on the sword for me and I'll see you right. Fail to, and I'll f**k you up real bad"

Just wait until they find out you're on to them, then it will be "quick, initiate the back-up cover-up plan, and for God's sake don't let anyone speak to Paddick". They'll have you up before Vos again if you're not careful...
