Failing Upwards....

Deputy Chief Constable Matthew Horne was found to have breached Essex Police’s standards of behaviour earlier this year but is now joining the Metropolitan Police in the role of...
Ah, yes, I remember this one.

So what's he joining them as? Office cleaner?
...Deputy Assistant Commissioner.
*blinks*
He denied all three allegations, but a panel found them to be proven. They recommended he was given management advice, but then-Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh decided he should face no further action hailing his service record for all but ten minutes of his 28-year career.
Now a spokesman for Essex Police has confirmed he is leaving the force for a new role in the Met.

SNORK!

Some people are skilled at climbing the greasy poll, others, like me, less so. I smell Common Purpose

Strewth. What's his secret? It's not as if he has a melanated vagina.

I must try that defence. I've been in 29 years so if I cock up for ten minutes that should be enough to excuse me?

There are certain positions, whether it be politics, the Police, the Armed Forces, or retail moguls, where the consequences of their actions are considered less serious than if the same offences were carried out by those in a more junior position. It shows that, in the majority of cases, honour is something not considered. I am not suggesting that a glass of whisky and a loaded Webley taken to the library is the only way, but I believe there has to he a proper deterrent, irrespective of the societal position of the miscreant.
Mind you, I still believe that Elvis Presley is alive and well and stacking trolleys for Asda in Farnborough.

"I smell Common Purpose"

I'm beginning to think so too.

"What's his secret? It's not as if he has a melanated vagina"

Now now, we can't assume... ;)

" I am not suggesting that a glass of whisky and a loaded Webley taken to the library is the only way..."

He'd probably miss.

"He hasn't even had any Brazilian electricians gunned down."
