No detective work needed to find Orde’s undercover lover…

SCOTLAND Yard believes that the naming of the PSNI Chief Constable’s undercover cop mistress would cause “serious security concerns,” according to the Sunday Life, which published photos of her running hand-in-hand with her lover at the weekend – though all identifying features were blacked out. However, if you have a copy of the story, you don’t have to be a detective to search the marathons Sir Hugh Orde has run in recently, run a search on his name or race number and cross-reference that on the handy marathon-photos.com (where she can be seen running beside the crafty copper) to find out her race number. Run that number through race results and you get her name… You can order photos of Denise Weston and her lover here. If I can do it, anyone can, so anyone for a marathon session? I guess when it coincides with attending a memorial service for fallen RUC officers on the same day, the answer is ‘yes’. Tomorrow should be fun for Sir Hugh too, as some of the world’s top cops descend on Belfast for a major policing conference.

    Brilliant Gonzo! But be careful, sir hugh may just make you an offer you can’t refuse.

  • Sir Hugh has always been a hands on type of man.

    Sir Hugh likes to do the leg work, followed by the thigh work and so on.

    So, who wears the trousers?

    Can’t help recalling the scene from Police accademy, when the Police chief is standing at the rostrum, and starts to get a oral prompt.

    Better check the rostrum tommorrow to see if Denise Watson is hiding within.

    PSNI Pecker Penetrates Undercover operation.

    Looking shocked, Sir Hugh said, “You could have blown me down with an undercover cop”

    Goldsmith, Orde, Prezza, the boys are back in town.

    Denise Watson has just bought a love water craft for her and Hugh and has asked Sir Hugh if he would like to come on her Boat.

    So, how will Duvet Denise come out of all this, given that Cresida Dick the commander who was in charge of the De Menenez shooting has just been promoted to Deputy Assistant Commisioner the outlook looks bright for Denise.

    Motto of the Police is:

    “Fuck up big time and get promoted, fuck up big time with the boss and get?”

  • Pete Baker

    This story is a complete irrelavance to policy, operational or otherwise, as decided by the Chief Constable.

    If there is any significance to any actual decision making by Hugh Orde, then present it.. otherwise it’s an invasion of the private life of a citizen.

  • Yes, it is an invasion of the private life of a public, repeat public figure who is tasked to uphold the law, set an example to the rest of society.

    So, it is alright to conduct an adulterus affair in full public view that has led to child being born out of wedlock while single parents are being blamed for gun crime and all manner of ills in society.

    Next thing may be Sir Hugh will inform us he is turning to islam so he can also marry Ms Watson and have two wives.

    Any notion of private life goes out of the window when you step up to the plate and become a high profile public figure.

    So, its alright to have Tory leader David Cameron the pot head, soon to be revealed as a Cocaine user at University and also a dealer in class A drugs at Uni, (Gordon Brown’s secret hammer)

    Now the Chief of Police is a public adulterer with children who have multiple mothers and everything is alright with the world.

    What next, Tony Blair is not the father of Leo, it is an American lawyer, oh thats old news.

  • Pablo

    “This story is a complete irrelavance to policy, operational or otherwise, as decided by the Chief Constable”

    …but it is written in scripture, in the good book Pete, ‘thou shalt not co-operate with an investigation into the former RUC’

    Perhaps this was Hugh’s real sin.

  • Pete

    It’s hardly “a private matter” if they pose for photographers while holding hands on a marathon finishing line and don’t mind those photos being in the public domain.

    Sir Hugh, a public figure, also visited his mistress, already a cover star in various newspapers, instead of attending a memorial service to dead police officers. Their colleagues – the officers he commands and whose respect he needs to retain his authority – might be interested in that particular decision.

    has a kind of ring to it as a headline.

  • Pete Baker

    Gonzo

    You have yet to make any case for an intervention in any actual policy decisions.

  • Pablo

    All joking aside Gonzo, its easy to see that this is a deliberate smear campaign against sir hugh, and when you look at the media in which this story first arose its not too hard to work out who is behind it and who’s interests are being served.

  • Pete Baker

    Or indeed anytime that this relationship played any part in the eventual decison.

  • Pablo

    “Or indeed anytime that this relationship played any part in the eventual decison”

    …the relationship unfortunately is still relevant Pete. Its being used to embarrass sir hugh with the ultimate aim of bringing him down, simply because it can bring him down. That is the world we live in.

  • Gonzo

    You have yet to make any case for an intervention in any actual policy decisions.

    And I’m not going to. This isn’t about policy decisions.

    All joking aside Gonzo, its easy to see that this is a deliberate smear campaign against sir hugh, and when you look at the media in which this story first arose its not too hard to work out who is behind it and who’s interests are being served.

    I believe you’re probably right. Funny thing is, it could backfire on Hugh’s foe

    Or indeed anytime that this relationship played any part in the eventual decison.

    To run that marathon with his mistress, rather than attend the memorial? Orde’s already said he’d booked a place in it far in advance. He might well be telling the truth, but then he lied to his wife for three years…

  • SuperSoupy

    What’s with Pete? A habitual liar as CC and it doesn’t matter? Hain farts and it’s the end of the world. Bet it’s because the SDLP picked him.

  • Pete Baker

    Gonzo

    “And I’m not going to. This isn’t about policy decisions”

    But if it isn’t about any actual decisions, then it’s tabloid..

  • Fuiseog

    I wonder if Denise was hand in hand with him when Oglaigh na h-Eireann just missed him in May 2005.

    Bet that made for some interesting pillowtalk that night !!

  • Donnacha

    As Chief Constable in a state which is likely to be led by a fundalmentalist Christian, this should make for some interesting conversations between the CC and the probably FM, don’t you think? While private lives are just that, I can’t imagine RIP being very supportive.

  • Rory

    “Man and woman thought to be lovers!”

    Well, gasp! Shock! Horror!

    I thought we had grown up about all this sort of thing after the death of Parnell. Seems I was wrong (again).

  • Crataegus

    Everyone is entitled to a private life.

  • heck

    i’m no fan of the RUC/PSNI/UVF but this is a bit much.

    the RUC and B specials beat people on the streets in the 60s
    the RUC tortured people in the 70’s
    the RUC had a shoot to kill policy in the late 70s +early 80’s
    the RUC/PSNI ran loyalist death squads in the late 80’s and 90’s
    The psni/uvf cover it up in the 21st century

    and what to people get excited about. A peeler getting a bit on the side.

    wise up

  • Wilde Rover

    “I thought we had grown up about all this sort of thing after the death of Parnell. Seems I was wrong (again).”

    Me too. I cannot see how this story is in the public interest, thereby justifying publishing information from the private life of a public figure.

    Certainly, the public will be interested in it, or more precisely, titillated by it, but that certainly isn’t the same thing.

    If it is something to do with being at a marathon when he should have been performing his duties then that should have been the story.

    The bould Slugger O’Toole seems to have gotten drunk and fallen into the gutter.

  • idunnomeself

    is the point not that he was ‘running a marathon’ rather than ‘running a marathon with someone’?

    I have some friends training for marathons, it is taking up significant parts of their lives over a period of months. I’m not surprised that he didn’t cancel it for (another) ceremony at all.

    The mistress bit is just a smear, Art Hostage, you’re being infantile, trying to pretend he is a hypocrite, unless the police have started to arrest adulterers?

  • sevenmagpies

    “He might well be telling the truth, but then he lied to his wife for three years”

    Is there any actual evidence that he lied to his wife about this relationship or is that just an assumption?

    I’ve certainly met other people who remain married and share the same house whilst keeping entirely separate personal lives.

  • private eye

    There are regulations within Police policy about affairs such as this. This has very likely broken those regulations. That is what makes this such a big deal, and a public matter.

  • But if it isn’t about any actual decisions, then it’s tabloid..

    Pete, I would never deny that.

    idunnomeself

    It wasn’t a marathon in Tyneside. It was a 10km fun run – so a seasoned marathon runner wouldn’t require much training.

    On the other hand, Belfast was only the third city to host National Police Memorial Day.

    It was probably being planned for a year and was attended by VIPs like the Home Secretary plus Garda Conroy and police chiefs from across UK, all of whom took the Trouble to fly to Belfast while Hugh was flying in the opposite direction to see his lover.

    Hugh’s wife even attended.

  • Jody

    Don’t understand the logic and fuss about Hugh. The other wee man has been having affairs for years and has fathered outside of his marriage. Known to a large number of the public and well known by the press – why the double standards and silence? After all he is in an even bigger police top job!

  • Can’t make my mind up,
    Met Chief Ian Blair or Home Seretary John Reid?

  • Jody

    Mostly away, but try nearer home
