At last proof is emerging that 'Yates of the Yard' was actually a Common Purpose stooge promoted to ensure that the 'Political Class' were protected from the law. Remember Tony Blair appointed this guy to oversee the cash for peerages scandal and of course nobody was found guilty. That alerted me that 'Yates of the Yard' appeared to be a 'wrong 'un'!
Then he was appointed to investigate the hacking enquiry which any interested parties knew was a 'whitewash' appointment. Today he has, as the police always do when caught out, apologised for his inept handling of the original hacking enquiry.
How many more will be outed as incompetent before the government orders a total clearout of Common Purpose recruits. Day after day these Common Purpose recruited individuals are outed as incompetents who believe that an apology for ineptitude will suffice! Well it won't...they should be charged with negligence. Yates of the Yard clearly failed in his duty...there is no excuse for complying with political orders. Policemen should police not politicise.
I hope in future that Yates faces what he deserves... a bloody jury!
