OK, maybe not the clothes! And certainly not the hair, either.
But one thing I don't want to see back? Broadwater Farm:So much for that 'quest for the truth'...
As Commissioner Godwin answered to members questions, including Assembly Member Val Shawcross, the public started to heckle and shout questioning why Detective Constable Stuart Hobkirk told a judge in court earlier this week the musician had stabbed himself in front of officers at his Warlingham home on March 15.
Deputy Mayor of London for Policing Kit Malthouse tried to intervene and asked for order, but the public continued to chant, at which point Mr Malthouse interrupted the meeting and left the chamber followed by other members.
The public started chanting “No justice, no peace” as they left the chamber and building.Can we stop with 'the public'? These people aren't 'the public'.
Speaking outside City Hall after the meeting, social justice campaigner (Ed: SNORK!) Lee Jasper said: “Boris, the City, the commissioners, the IPCC, they had better be aware that this is the community at boiling point and we are ready to take action. We are back to the 80s. This is uprising.”Sounds a lot like incitement to riot, to me.
I know a few police officers read this blog. So if you have to patrol the fetid swamp inhabited by the likes of Lee Jasper's 'army', remember the words of a fictional cop from a - hey, surprise! - Eighties tv show.
And be careful out there.
