Orde makes final two for the Met job…

Whoops… Better hold Hugh Orde’s seat at the Northern Irish Power Lunch; it seems he is one of the last two candidates for the Chief Commissioner for the London Metropolitan Police. My guess his political skills may make him a nice ‘buy’ for the ambitious Conservative Mayor, Boris Johnson…

    Nice time to go!
    Particularly if devolvement of P&J;will ultimately lead to the inevitable culling, in these difficult economic climes, of PSNI from 7000 down to the UK per head of the population average 3-4,000. One of just the very big issues our political leaders will want to hide from including: size of the civil service, duplication of all manner of facilities including schooling etc. etc. etc. Sorry going slightly off thread there!

    Orde never was much of a leader and his support for nonpokitical non sectarian policing was luke warm at best

    “Chief Commissioner”, don’t think so. The post is Commissioner.

    Too much quango nomenclature running around inside your head.
