Cops give TOP PRIORITY to claims of terrorist threats and bank robberies but try to get them to protect you
British cops have been exposed as protecting gangs of homopaedo's in the upper echelons of society .
They have also been exposed protecting the BBC's predatory paedo's like Jimmy Savile for decades.
They have been exposed infiltrating protest groups and having sex with their members.
They have been exposed operating as assassins for a police state shooting with impunity anyone who dares
stand up to their form of tyranny.
But the media still fail to expose their part in the biggest crime wave across the UK, house theft. They also fail to expose how in vast sink estates across Britain people live in fear from gangs of neds who can roam the streets
without fear attacking the elderly, young and disabled unable to defend themselves in areas the police regard as NO GO areas. Yet anybody who shows the slightest interest in stealing from a bank will have a full swat team on their back before they make the first move.
If there was a close inspection of what time the police spend on protecting the public it would be TINY. They spend far more of their time on helping the crooks running the legal system for their own self enrichment hounding separated fathers on the orders of courts run by the freemason judicial mafia. They will spend years terrorising those being fleeced in courts and you will see regularly large hoards of cops mulling around homes on either the pretext of the custody of a child and usually just before the property is about to be seized. They will also give the illusion , via the compliant media, that they can smash down doors anywhere looking for drugs when that is used to mask the real reason they are there and usually just before they aid bailiffs to steal the property they are breaking into if they meet any resistance.
Many cops now live in homes they helped STEAL as they are offered many stolen properties at knock down prices by the terror group they operate for the Law Society. NONE OF THIS EVER SEES THE LIGHT OF DAY THANKS TO THE HOLD THE LEGAL MAFIA HAVE OVER THEIR COMPLIANT MEDIA. In the past councils put X amount of homes in those estates for police to reside in but they have all managed to get onto the property ladder thanks to them being part of the biggest crime wave in British history and THEY are the very bastards charged with protecting the peace when they do NOTHING of the kind except ensure their masonic brothers avoid any sort of charge on the vast criminal network they operate right across the country.
There is something deadly sinister about how British cops operate and any young man with ideals of fighting for truth and justice should NEVER consider joining an organisation / company that acts as thugs for a draconian government hell bent on destroying mens lives through the legal system that is totally and utterly corrupt.

Ex-cop questioned over £1.9million paid by motorists on speed awareness courses: Crime watchdogs order firms to open their books as they investigate a 'murky' deal struck by forces
Private firms run by former police officers are to be placed under investigation after accumulating millions of pounds from motorists attending speed awareness courses.
The companies, run by a scandal-hit former chief constable and an ex-traffic policeman, amassed a surplus of more than £1.9 million from the fees – money which is due to be spent on road safety.
Crime tsars have now ordered an urgent review of the arrangements amid ‘serious concerns’ that private firms may also be profiting from speeding motorists – and that the ex-policemen could have a conflict of interest.
Police and Crime Commissioners are demanding that the firms open their books and reveal what happened to money paid by motorists who opt to attend courses rather than take points on their licences when caught speeding.
The elected officials also want the firms to hand over their database of every driver who has ever gone on a driving course.
Christopher Salmon, Tory Police and Crime Commissioner for Dyfed-Powys, said the surplus was the result of ‘a murky deal from the days when police forces were not scrutinised properly’. He added: ‘Many PCCs, including me, want a thorough investigation into how so much money from speeding motorists ends up in private hands.’
At the centre of the controversy is Meredydd ‘Med’ Hughes, Chief Constable of South Yorkshire from 2004 until 2011, when the sexual abuse of girls by Asian gangs in Rotherham was at its worst.
According to an unpublished review obtained by The Mail on Sunday, in December 2006 Mr Hughes suggested to the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) that a private firm should be set up to manage the fines generated by speed cameras.
Road Safety Support Ltd was established three months later – with Mr Hughes as a director, alongside former traffic policeman Trevor Hall and businessman Bill Howes.
It was set up as a not-for-profit operation, as was another company the trio later established, called NDORS Ltd, after the name of the speed awareness courses: the National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme.
They also set up profit-making firm RST&C Ltd offering expertise in road safety, but Mr Hughes had to stand down after he was warned it could be seen as a conflict of interest. He rejoined the firm as soon as he retired from policing in 2011.
Under a deal agreed by Acpo in 2007, each time a motorist pays to go on a course the private firms receive a £5 cut of the fees, supposedly to cover admin costs.
Most of the rest goes to the company delivering the course, with £15 going to the force that caught the driver. As the courses expanded, with close to a million motorists a year now taking them, the firms built up a £1.9 million surplus by late 2011.
A review by accountants PricewaterhouseCoopers said there was ‘no clear strategy’ as to how this money should be spent or by whom, as it legally belonged to the company but was intended for traffic safety.
It recommended a new quango, independent of Acpo, should take over to avoid ‘perceptions of conflicts of interest’.
But three years on, planned reforms have stalled. Now Police and Crime Commissioners are trying to unravel the complex arrangements and are set to appoint an investigator to look into the situation.
They are demanding to see the firms’ accounts and want them to hand back their database of drivers’ details.
A spokesman for the firms said: ‘The bulk of the fee pays for the necessary admin support, course development and assessment, IT, and the necessary centrally provided legal and technical services.
‘Frequent audits and legal opinion have determined that the funds are correctly held by NDORS Ltd in compliance with UK law. The directors have written the company articles to ensure the surplus can only be used for road safety purposes.
‘Directors of NDORS Ltd have always fully co-operated with numerous reviews over the years. Indeed, they initiated moves to bring more open governance into the scheme.’

Britain's masonic cops massive failure over 2,000 paedo list sent by Toronto cops
Three police forces face an inquiry over alleged failures to act on tip offs about potential paedophiles.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) will examine how Essex, North Wales and North Yorkshire handled information from Canadian police passed to the UK in 2012.
Around 2,000 names were sent by Toronto Police to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).
The three forces referred themselves to the IPCC for investigation.
The IPCC said it would now look at how that the intelligence - uncovered by officers from the international Operation Spade - was handled once it was received by the forces.
Photos of pupils
Essex Police faces questions over how it dealt with information relating to Martin Goldberg, a teacher who took indecent photos of his pupils.
Goldberg was found dead a day after being interviewed by the force. Police found hundreds of images of children getting changed on his computer.
CEOP had been told about the deputy head in July 2012 but he was not interviewed by Essex Police until September this year.
The IPCC wrote to all chief constables in England and Wales last month, asking them to review how they dealt with any information they had received relating to Operation Spade.
North Yorkshire and North Wales Police subsequently referred themselves to the body.
Cardiff paedophile Gareth Williams was among three names Canadian officers passed to North Wales Police in 2013. The force did not act on them for a year.
Williams was jailed for five years in May.
Deputy IPCC chairwoman Sarah Green said: "There is rightly considerable public concern about how police forces deal with sexual offences involving children.
"The IPCC takes this issue seriously and proactively contacted all forces and asked them to review their handling of intelligence to determine the scale of any issues.
"Our investigations will examine carefully how intelligence from CEOP was dealt with by these three forces."
The head of the National Crime Agency (NCA) - which now encompasses CEOP - last month apologised for delays in acting on the information passed to it in July 2012.
How the agency handled that initial receipt of information is the subject of a separate IPCC probe.
BBC News obtained figures in October suggesting many forces had at that time only arrested around a third of the names among the Canadian intelligence.
North Wales and North Yorkshire were not among those that responded.
Was John Lowe a freemason given his guns back to murder?
Like Dunblane murderer Thomas Hamilton a freemason allowed to carry guns and who murdered 16 children
John Lowe was given back guns he used to murder despite previous death threats. Only a feeemason with a police force
run by freemasons would do such a thing.The grovingly apology by Britain's rogue masonic cops just wont do anymore.
Never mind the decades of abuse by BBC presenter Jimmy Savile and MP Cyril Smith they covered up.
Surrey Police has apologised over its "flawed" decision to return guns to an 82-year-old man who went on to murder his partner and her daughter.
Christine Lee, 66, and 40-year-old Lucy Lee were shot by John Lowe at his puppy farm in Farnham in February.
His shotguns and licence had been seized by the police in March 2013 but were returned to him four months later.
After the hearing, Christine Lee's daughter, Stacy Banner, said Surrey Police had "put the gun in his hands".
"The shotgun was one of seven that had been returned to him by the police only months before he used it to kill," she said.
"John Lowe pulled the trigger but it was the Surrey Police who put the gun in his hands."
Asst Chief Constable Stuart Cundy: "Initial reports say the decision to hand back guns was flawed"
Assistant Chief Constable Stuart Cundy from Surrey Police, said two reports by other forces had found the decision to return the guns was "flawed".
He said: "Whilst the full investigation into this matter remains ongoing, in light of these early findings Surrey Police has spoken with members of Christine and Lucy Lee's family to apologise for this."
Three Surrey Police employees were now subject to a gross misconduct investigation, he added.
"As a result of the two independent reports, the IPCC have decided this will now be an independent investigation," he said.
Outside court, Mrs Banner said Lowe "brutally and deliberately murdered my mum and my sister by shooting each of them at close range with a shotgun".
"They did not stand a chance," she said.
Mrs Banner called for the way gun licensing decisions are made to be changed.
"Licensing cannot be left entirely up to the police," she said.
"There needs to be thorough and regular multi-agency assessments for would-be gun-holders.
"And the cost of a shotgun licence needs to be significantly increased."
IPCC commissioner Jennifer Izekor said: "Two women have tragically lost their lives, and their family and friends deserve to know the circumstances in which the guns were returned to Mr Lowe.
"It also is in the interests of the wider public that Surrey Police's decision-making in these circumstances is independently scrutinised."
The jury heard a 999 call by victim Lucy Lee: "He's just shot my mum"
Surrey Police said it had taken steps to ensure its firearms licensing policy and procedures were in line with national best practice.
The force is also reviewing other cases in which firearms have been returned to people.
Kevin Hurley, Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner, insisted it was "very difficult" to get a firearms licence.
When asked for his reaction to the family's statement, he told BBC Radio 4's PM programme: "I understand that when someone has lost family members they want to apportion blame and they will make statements they think are appropriate.
"I have no issue with family members making that kind of statement because they are upset, they are grieving and it is clear that police failed in this case."

1,200 stasi style cops operate across England and Wales
A creepy freemason agenda
There are more than 1,200 undercover police officers operating in 39 units across England and Wales the police watchdog has revealed for the first time, as it issued a damning criticism of senior officers responsible for the tactic.
The inspectors said that the “generally poor knowledge and lack of expertise of senior officers” was unacceptable and called for a root-and-branch reform of the secretive national group that oversees the deployment of undercover officers.
Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) warned that the shortcomings of the senior officers threatened to undermine a technique that it said was a valuable way of catching criminals.
They also found that five police forces had failed to adapt to “the fast growing online threat” from criminals and were not conducting any undercover investigations on the internet.
The watchdog broke new ground by disclosing the breadth of modern undercover work, revealing that there were 3,466 undercover operations in England and Wales between October 2009 and September 2013 and that at the most recent count, 1,229 officers in 39 units are trained as undercover officers.
Inspectors refused to detail individual operations, but said the undercover officers had been targeted at small-time criminals selling drugs or stolen goods on the street through to paedophiles and terrorists.
The watchdog has refused to say how many undercover officers are being used to infiltrate political groups.
The HMIC report into the current control of undercover officers was commissioned by the home secretary, Theresa May, following revelations in the Guardian that undercover officers had spied on the family of murdered teenager, Stephen Lawrence.
Stephen Otter, the HMIC inspector who led the evaluation of the covert operations, acknowledged that a series of disclosures – including how undercover officers had formed sexual relationships with women they were spying on and gave evidence in court using their fake identities – had caused “a growing unease that the tactic is being wrongly used, badly supervised, and ineffectively controlled”.
Otter and his team put forward 49 recommendations to improve the “policies, systems, training and leadership of undercover operations which if implemented should address the unacceptable inconsistencies and shortcomings that we have found”.
He said that the national undercover working group – the body of senior officers in charge of undercover operations – was not run well “and that it has not done so for some time”.
Commander Richard Martin, the chair of the working group, stepped aside from his post during the inspection but said it was “his decision and not based on the findings of the HMIC report.”
Otter also said it was “totally unacceptable” that many senior officers who were responsible for approving undercover operations were not trained properly or did not have experience in covert work.
Otter said: “We were concerned by a generally poor level of knowledge and lack of expertise of those senior officers who authorise the use of undercover officers.” He added that there was an “unacceptable variation in the quality of the written authorisations – often with insufficient detail provided”.
The working group found that in one instance, three out of the four courses which had been organised to teach authorising officers had to be cancelled as the numbers of chief officers signing up to attend was so low.
Ministers had promised to tighten up the control of covert operations after revelations about the conduct of undercover officers – such as Mark Kennedy who infiltrated environmental groups for seven years – began to emerge in 2011.
Otter also criticised senior officers for ignoring a previous, unpublished high-level review of undercover operations that had made 55 recommendations for improvements two years ago. One of the recommendations was to ensure that undercover officers should have adequate psychological support. The officer with the longest track record in covert work was said to have been deployed in a variety of operations over 20 years and has since retired.
Deputy Chief Constable Jon Boutcher, who is currently responsible for undercover policing, said: “Unacceptable behaviour by a number of undercover officers in the past has been brought to light and is being investigated.
“We have learned many lessons from these cases. We are disappointed that the report does not acknowledge many of the positive changes that are already being delivered in undercover policing.”
Freemason cops let paedo's walk free claiming arresting them is ‘too difficult’
Sir Peter Fahy, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police
Hundreds of paedophiles have been left to roam the streets because police bosses were reluctant to go after them, two former detectives claimed last night.
Abusers named by victims or picked out of line-ups were let go after Greater Manchester Police commanders said prosecuting would be ‘too difficult’.
Former detective constable Margaret Oliver blamed the force’s boss Sir Peter Fahy, saying: ‘He cannot pretend not to know what is not being done in relation to the investigation of this kind of crime. I told him and I won’t be the only person who told him.’
Chief constable Sir Peter admitted there was a problem but blamed the legal system – saying officers were having to resort to arresting sex predators for less serious offences.
He said: ‘We will look at people who are abusers and say, even if we can’t get them for this particular offence, we’ll try and hit them with anything else we can.
‘If it’s their taxi licence, the shop they run or if they’re involved in any other form of criminality.’
Ms Oliver said she had written a report more than ten years ago giving details of sex abuse by gangs of Asian men against young white girls. The names of victims and offenders were included but there was a ‘lack of desire’ to investigate.
Six years later, another detective voiced concerns that the problem had begun to spiral ‘out of control’ but bosses remained unwilling to take action.
The second detective said: ‘They were only interested in target crimes – robbery, burglary and car theft.’
In 2012, nine men were convicted of raping and trafficking girls as young as 13 in Rochdale.
ITV News said it had been told that police had files full of evidence from other victims but – in an echo of the Rotherham child sex scandal – no suspects had been charged.
Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk said: ‘It’s my view that there are rapists out there that have raped young girls in Rochdale and Greater Manchester and the police aren’t effectively taking prosecutions against them.’
Sir Peter said, in the past, officers had a mindset that girls claimed to have been abused by paedophiles ‘would always be unreliable’.
He added: ‘That has changed but what hasn’t is the courts system.’

NCA chief Keith Bristow said the volume of images made it difficult for police.
Cops spying scandal deepens using Ripa laws to access phone records as easily as using a 'cash machine'
Police snooping scandal deepens over claims forces use controversial Ripa laws to access phone records from major networks as easily as using a 'cash machine'
The police snooping scandal has deepened after claims forces used controversial surveillance laws to access phone records from major networks as easily as using a ‘cash machine’.
It comes after reports that officers have been using the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act to seize journalists’ phone records and find out their sources for at least 10 years.
In one case Suffolk police confirmed it had used the anti-terrorism power to obtain the phone records of a reporter at the East Anglian Daily Times who had asked questions about a rape investigation in December 2006.
Three quarters of the UK’s major mobile phone networks has been providing police with customers’ call records through automated systems, according to an investigation by the Guardian.
One phone company employee told the paper that the process being operated by EE, Vodafone and Three is like ‘a cash machine’.
The only big phone company which requires staff to review all police information requests is O2, according to transparency watchdog Privacy International.
Mobile operators must keep a year of call records of all of its customers by law. Police and other agencies are able to access the data without a warrant using Ripa – a law giving authority to most of GCHQ’s mass surveillance and originally intended to safeguard national security.
Software providers’ records have revealed the vast majority of requests by police were delivered without the involvement of phone company staff.
The incident in Suffolk saw police trawl through the phone records of crime reporter Mark Bulstrode, who now works at the BBC, after he questioned the force about the re-opening of a cold case rape investigation from the 1980s.
He was warned the report could jeopardise the investigation and the East Anglian Daily Times decided not to run it – but police still obtained his phone records to find out who his source had been.
Under a Data Protection Act, Mr Bulstrode requested access to records police held on him and made the discovery, which the paper and its sister publication, the Ipswich Star, reported on in December 2006.
However it was not known at the time that the records had been obtained using Ripa, which the force confirmed to media trade publication Press Gazette yesterday.
Speaking to the MailOnline on Saturday night, Mr Bulstrode said that he was 'disappointed' with the way the police had acted.
He said: 'I was investigating a story that was in the public interest and I was disappointed that my phone records were accessed in this way when both I and the newspaper had acted in good faith throughout.'
It comes as Boris Johnson backtracked on comments he had previously made in support of the police’s use of Ripa, now claiming it ‘crucial’ that journalists should be able to protect their sources.
Earlier this week the Mayor of London, who has responsibility for holding the Metropolitan Police to account, defended Scotland Yard for secretly seizing phone records of Sun reporter Tom Newton Dunn while investigating the Plebgate row.
Speaking at the London Press Club Ball this week, he said: ‘It is absolutely vital for our country and for this city that we protect free speech - and, if I can say something about one current controversy, it is of course right that the police should be able to investigate serious criminal matters.
‘But it is also crucial that journalists should be able to protect their sources and to give whistleblowers the confidence to come forward and we will have to insist that in future the police will not be able to see a journalist's phone records without some kind of judicial approval.’
Police also used Ripa to secretly spy on The Mail On Sunday – trawling through thousands of confidential numbers called by journalists from a landline at the newsdesk extending back an entire year.
It was after shamed Cabinet Minister Chris Huhne falsely accused journalists of conspiring to bring him down but detectives decided to sidestep a judge’s agreement to protect the source for stories exposing Huhne for illegally conspiring to have his speeding points put on his wife’s licence.
Critics have argued that obtaining phone records in this way could create a state database of private communications, although politicians have made assurances it will not.
Former Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer, this week lashed out at police chiefs who defended the practice after he clashed with Andy Trotter, ex-chief constable of British Transport Police, who insisted there were ‘higher concerns’ than protecting whistleblowers who spoke to the media.
An inquiry has now been launched into how every police force in the country has used Ripa to track journalists phone calls.
The Home Office will look at police use of Ripa in relation to journalists as part of a wider review of the powers available under the Act to the police and Security Services which was announced earlier this year.
Freemason cops admit they were told Jimmy Savile was a paedophile a DECADE before he was exposed
A police force has admitted they were told Jimmy Savile was a paedophile nearly a decade before his horrific crimes came to light, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
Surrey Police have disclosed that a journalist called them in 2003 with information that an unnamed victim had been abused by Savile as a child in London – but the force did nothing with the information.
The call only emerged after an examination of police phone records in November last year, long after Savile was unmasked as the UK's most notorious paedophile.
Surrey have now asked an external force to investigate whether there were any other missed opportunities which may have resulted from earlier investigations.
The 2003 call came in the middle of Operation Arundel, an investigation which led to former pop mogul Jonathan King and DJ Chris Denning being convicted of child abuse.
Records show that police operators asked the journalist to encourage the victim to contact them or the Metropolitan Police.
But Surrey said no crime record was created as 'no direct allegation was ever received' and Savile was not a suspect in the Arundel inquiry.
The new revelation is hugely embarrassing for the force, who previously admitted they identified Savile as a potential abuser in 2007, but botched the subsequent investigation.
Savile was interviewed under caution by Surrey officers that year about sexual assault allegations dating back to the 1970s.
But no charges were brought after the Crown Prosecution Service advised there was insufficient evidence.
It has since emerged that Surrey officers overlooked key evidence during the investigation, codenamed Operation Ornament, from 2007 to 2009.
It was only during a 2012 review that the force discovered the 2003 call, but when the force then published a report on the review last January, it failed to mention it.
The omission was spotted in November 2013 and led to the force referring the matter to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, which oversaw the investigation but cleared Surrey of any wrongdoing.
The blunder led Surrey to commission an independent report by Merseyside Police, which is currently being assessed.
But last night Labour MP Simon Danczuk said: 'This is yet another revelation showing the casual attitude of police towards this crime at the time.
It's important we know why information relating to credible tip-offs was not acted on so we can establish what the police knew about Savile. Only then will we be able to learn lessons so that other powerful abusers cannot slip through the net.'
A Surrey Police spokesman said: 'The call from the journalist came during the force's investigation into historical sexual offences known as Operation Arundel. Savile was not a suspect in this investigation.
'Material relating to Operation Arundel has been shared with Operation Yewtree as part of their on-going enquiries. Surrey Police commissioned an independent external review of Operation Arundel by Merseyside Police and are in the process of assessing a report from that.'
No whistleblower is safe if freemason cops can get away with hacking data
It is deeply disturbing that the police have hacked into the offices of a major UK newspaper. In seeking to circumvent a judge’s protection of The Mail on Sunday’s source on the story about Chris Huhne, they have not only acted as a law unto themselves but have struck a serious blow against press freedom.
Furthermore, by seeking to expose the source – who first contacted the newspaper about the Huhne case – they have put every potential whistleblower from every walk of life in jeopardy.
It appears that being unable to force The Mail on Sunday to reveal its source, the police used the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (RIPA) Act – legislation designed to help tackle terrorism – to do the job instead.
Surveillance laws such as RIPA have been a matter of great concern to the Home Affairs Select Committee.
So many ordinary citizens have been targeted as a matter of mistaken identity. For those affected this represents a serious invasion of privacy.
Where you have the deliberate use of RIPA, as in the case of journalists from The Mail on Sunday being targeted, that is an even more serious matter.
When the police decide ‘We will go and get this information and hand this information to a third party’ in order to benefit the third party, I find it shocking.
Where the third party is not even entitled to access to this information or even the power to get this information, this is even more dangerous.
In this case the police force concerned appears to have used this information and handed it to someone who is party to other proceedings – and I cannot think that this was the intention of Parliament when passing this law.
If this is where we are going to go with RIPA and this is how its power is being used, we need to know which police authorities are using it, the number of applications made and why.
As result of the case of The Mail on Sunday, I will suggest to the committee that we should call the Interception of Communication Commissioner to come before us and offer an explanation of the way in which RIPA is being used and how he holds to account those using RIPA.
I shall also be writing to the Chief Constable of Kent to ask him for a full and complete account of what has happened.
We will expect full cooperation. Citizens have a right to be concerned about legislation that is no longer fit for purpose.
Hypocritical Daily Rat critical of cop spying powers despite promoting them previously
Harmsworth's Daily Rat despite promoting RIPA powers of spying when they first came out
change their mind when its themselves that face that form of spying
The police are not fit to have these powers
The phrase ‘Police State’ is often a cliché. But it is an outrage worthy of a Police State that rights granted by Parliament for combating terrorism can be used to breach the confidentiality of journalists’ sources.
The Mail on Sunday accepts absolutely that the police should have powers to inspect phone and computer records to secure the safety of the nation.
In these dangerous times we have reluctantly to allow more surveillance than we would wish.
But the law was not intended to allow police secretly to obtain the phone records of a Mail on Sunday journalist engaged in a legitimate inquiry, and so discover the names of his confidential sources.
A free press cannot function without such confidentiality.
Officially, our society praises and honours those prepared to step out of line to expose wrongdoing.
In practice, such people often face the loss of their careers, the dislike of former colleagues and many other hurts and humiliations.
Newspapers must be able to keep their promises to protect the identities of those who trust them.
If the police can simply decide that they have the right to breach that pact in secret, then the state has destroyed that trust.
Unless we act to rebuild it, many scandals will simply never be exposed. We will become, by stages, a more corrupt and a more autocratic society.
It is as important as that.
The police were not established in our free country to dig into the confidential telephone records of independent journalists.
The Kent Police force, which used anti-terror powers to find out who The Mail on Sunday had been speaking to in a legitimate investigation, claim their actions were proportionate, lawful, necessary and relevant.
But who are they to say so?
The problem with Labour’s Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) of 2000, under which these things were done, is that it contains too much power, licenses too much investigation and provides too little regulation.
By allowing public authorities to demand confidential records without going to a judge, it gives individual officials frightening and near-totalitarian powers – powers which are being frequently misused.
As in all cases of excessive power, all of us are potentially at risk.
There have been several wrongful arrests and unjustified searches because of officious blunders.
The phone records of thousands of innocent people have been wrongly seized.
POLICE USED TERROR LAWS TO TRACK DOWN SOURCE PROTECTED BY JUDGE
These extracts from a Kent Police document show how detectives trawled through a year’s records from November 2011 for eight phone lines, including the MoS newsdesk, to expose our source.
A judge had ordered the MoS to hand over emails stretching further back, but said Andrew Alderson’s name could be redacted. But by obtaining phone records via RIPA, police identified his number and linked it back to the emails.
The police have proved beyond doubt that they are not fit to hold the excessive powers granted them by RIPA.
As Keith Vaz urges in our pages today, those who have abused their powers should be required to account for themselves before Parliament.
Parliament should take back those powers, and once again subject such surveillance to the scrutiny of independent judges.
Detective quizzed over probe into Jimmy Savile and Jaconelli
Freemason cops protected knighted BBC scumbag Jimmy Savile for decades while he abused 1000's of children
along with his vile buddy Mayor of Scarborough Peter Jaconelli
A North Yorkshire detective who dealt with a sex crime allegation against Jimmy Savile and ex-Scarborough mayor Peter Jaconelli has been served with a misconduct notice.
He is one of five serving officers who are being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) over how the claims were handled by the county’s force.
The new probe relates to how the force handled information in 2002 from a woman in her mid-40s regarding an incident with Savile when she was 15, and how the force treated two disclosures made by a serving prisoner about Jaconelli in December 2008 and January 2009.
IPCC deputy chair Sarah Green said: “The investigation is examining whether the North Yorkshire Police response to the disclosures was in accordance with national and force policies on crime recording, intelligence handling and dealing with victims of sexual abuse.”
The serving Detective Sergeant has been issued with a misconduct notice, and has been interviewed by an IPCC investigator, the watchdog said.
It comes after The Scarborough News revealed in 2012 that two women claimed police officers had quizzed them about Savile as part of an investigation into a suspected paedophile ring that was operating in the town in the 70s and 80s.
Both women, who contacted the newspaper separately, said they were visited by detectives in 2003 and questioned about the group, that was believed to have operated around the seafront arcades.
They said police were linking two prominent Scarborough businessmen, including Peter Jaconelli, to the investigation and were told Savile was also a suspect.
One of the women, who was a young girl at the time the abuse was alleged to have taken place, said: “A police man came to my house and asked me about events that happened and Savile’s name was mentioned. I asked him about this and he said he couldn’t say anything and nothing came of that.”
However, when the Scarborough News contacted North Yorkshire Police, it denied any record of an investigation taking place.
At the time a police spokesman said: “We can only go by the information we have available, therefore it is not possible for North Yorkshire Police to verify or comment directly about the two anonymous victim accounts given to the Scarborough News.
“Since the serious allegations about Jimmy Savile were publicised nationally two weeks ago, we have carried out extensive searches of force records which did not reveal a local connection.
“However, following the coverage, we have had two women come forward about alleged sexual offences committed by Savile that occurred in Scarborough in the late 1960s and the late 1980s.”
In 2013, a former borough councillor told The Scarborough News he was “propositioned” at the age of 14 by former mayor and ice cream king Jaconelli.
Geoff Evans claimed the late 21-stone politician inappropriately embraced him when he visited his ice cream parlour in the early 1960s.
Mr Evans believed Jaconelli preyed on young children during the 1950s to 1970s and possibly beyond.
He claimed authorities, including the police and council, were aware of the issue but did not take any action
The new IPCC probe comes after the force referred itself to the watchdog in April over the way it responded to past child sex allegations levelled against Jaconelli, who died in 1999, and Savile, who died in 2011.
That investigation included whether any information it held on record about Savile or his known associates was properly and comprehensively disclosed to Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary when it, and other forces, were asked to do so in December 2012 and again by the IPCC in May last year.
An IPCC spokesman said following an assessment of the details, those matters “have been sent back to the force to deal with”.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “To ensure maximum transparency in the way North Yorkshire Police dealt with information and disclosures regarding alleged historic sexual abuse in Scarborough, North Yorkshire Police referred itself to the IPCC and is fully co-operating with their ongoing independent investigation.
“In respect of the matters which were referred back to North Yorkshire Police by the IPCC, these are currently being investigated and a decision will be made in due course on how to deal with those matters.
“While these enquiries are active it would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage.”
North Yorkshire Police is among several forces under investigation by the IPCC in connection with Savile, with a former Inspector from West Yorkshire Police interviewed under criminal caution, two officers from Sussex Police served with gross misconduct notices, two more with misconduct, and a former Detective Inspector from Surrey Police also currently being investigated.

Police Federation needs urgent reform, MPs say
In a damning report, the Home Affairs Committee said the Police Federation urgently needed reform.
It accused the organisation of pointlessly sitting on millions of pounds that should be given immediately back to thousands of officers.
The report calls for full disclosure of its financial affairs.
At its annual conference next week, the Police Federation is expected to debate far-reaching reforms and elect a new leader after an independent report called for top-to-toe changes at the crisis-ridden and secretive organisation.
That report, by the former top civil servant at the Home Office, Sir David Normington, found ordinary officers had lost confidence in the federation amid the complete failure of its strategy to oppose government cuts to policing.
During their follow-up inquiry, the MPs said they had heard "alarming" allegations of bullying and unprofessional conduct.
They said the federation's former chairman, Paul McKeever, who died in office, was the victim of a systematic campaign of abuse, as was his successor, Steve Williams.
The committee published documents provided by former federation officials which allege that they had been victims of "sustained abuse" and bullying by the general secretary, Ian Rennie, and an adviser.
Other evidence published by the committee includes an email drafted by Mr Williams, in which he wrote: "We all saw what happened to our friend and colleague Paul McKeever and with a young family I do not intend to let the same thing happen to me."
Both Mr Williams and Mr Rennie are resigning at next week's conference.
In a statement, Mr Rennie said: "The evidence [alleging bullying] is disputed... and was disputed when the incident referred to occurred over 10 years ago.
"It was settled by informal agreement at the time."
He said he had not faced any formal complaints throughout his six years in post.
Policing minister Damian Green said the revelations about the Police Federation were contributing to a wider public loss of faith in the police at large.
He said that the federation had been seen to be "dysfunctional and secretive" and this had damaged public confidence.
MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, said events at the federation rivalled any soap opera.
"When you hear stories that the national leadership has been indulging in rival acts of bullying, that is simply not acceptable," he said.
"We need to change that culture if we're going to restore the reputation of what is the finest police service in the world."
'£120 per officer'
The MPs criticised the federation for holding reserves of £70m which it probably did not need to properly carry out its functions.
They said that a halving of reserves could lead to an immediate rebate of £120 for each member.
They echoed Sir David Normington's calls for federation branches to disclose what could be further vast sums held in secondary bank accounts.
Responding to the report, Mr Williams said: "We welcome the Home Affairs Committee's reiteration of the principles contained within that report and of its modernising agenda, which we will be working to implement at our annual conference next week."
Paul McKeever Paul McKeever died in January 2013 after 20 years in key roles in the federation
The outcome of the conference is critical to the future of the organisation, which runs
the risk of Home Secretary Theresa May directly intervening to impose reforms.
A Home Office spokesman said that police deserved a representative body that was transparent and accountable.
"If the federation is to have public legitimacy, the Normington recommendations must be implemented swiftly and in full," he said.
However, the chairman of the Derbyshire Police Federation, Mark Pickard, told the BBC Radio 4's Today programme that although he wanted to see the recommendations implemented, he had reservations that they would actually be brought in.
"It's a bit like turkeys voting for Christmas," he said.
Shadow policing minister Jack Dromey said: "Change is necessary and it is in everyone's interests for a more open organisation.
"Certainly any culture of bullying must be called out and eradicated. No police officer I know would consider that acceptable."
The federation, which has about 127,000 members, represents all officers up to and including the rank of chief inspector.

'Bent cops' and a growing stench of corruption: The disturbing links between suspect officers and the gangster father of one of Stephen's killers
Over recent weeks, the Mail has published two investigations into the rampant corruption in Scotland Yard’s detective force in the Eighties and Nineties.
We raised the question of whether links between ‘bent coppers’ and serious organised criminals in South London might have hampered or sabotaged two of the Metropolitan Police’s most important murder investigations of recent years.
Black teenager Stephen Lawrence was stabbed to death by a racist white gang in April 1993.
Not until 2012 were two of his killers convicted, and then only after a campaign led by this newspaper to bring them to justice, in the face of what was described in a major inquiry as ‘institutional racism’ at the Met.
Daniel Morgan and Stephen Lawrence
Private investigator Daniel Morgan had been murdered with an axe in March 1987, allegedly as he was trying to blow the whistle on police corruption.
Both his business partner — who had close contacts in the local CID — and a Met detective were arrested in connection with the killing. But no one has yet been convicted, in spite of five police investigations and admissions by the Met that corruption played a part in those failings.
A former senior officer, involved in the anti-corruption investigations in the 1990s, said: ‘We believed corrupt police officers obstructed the quest for justice for Daniel’s murder. It must be the most shameful chapter in Scotland Yard history, made worse by the fact that no one has been brought to justice.’
A recent review by Mark Ellison QC into corruption in the Lawrence investigation revealed an overlap of suspected corrupt police personnel in both these murder inquiries.
To fuel suspicion of a cover-up of corruption in the South London force, it emerged last month that a ‘lorry-load’ of documents compiled by a secret anti-corruption ‘ghost squad’ at the Met were shredded a decade ago. Why, and on whose orders?
We can reveal today that such was the distrust within the Met that the security service — MI5 — was called in to run an investigation completely separate from that already being pursued by the ‘ghost squad’ of detectives.
Sources said that only a handful of very senior police officers knew about the existence of this Home-Office-funded MI5 unit, which was based outside London. One reason for its establishment was to guard against the possibility that the Met’s own anti-corruption team had itself been compromised.
Today, we set out further details of the suspected network of police corruption that dogged the Lawrence and Morgan murders, and reveal the first admission of wrongdoing by one of the bent coppers at its heart.
THE ‘OBNOXIOUS JOCK’
The nexus of corruption focused on a detective sergeant named John Davidson, known as OJ or ‘Obnoxious Jock’. Davidson played a major role in the early stages of the Lawrence investigation — interviewing suspects, witnesses and informants — and, as the Mail showed last month, he was actively linked to the Daniel Morgan case team.
Davidson was criticised by the 1999 Macpherson Inquiry report on the Lawrence investigation — which failed to find conclusive evidence of corruption — for being abrasive, incompetent and giving ‘unsatisfactory’ evidence.
Sir William Macpherson said the officer had only himself to blame if he and certain colleagues were perceived as being ‘institutionally racist’.
But the Inquiry was not told about allegations of serious corruption that had already been placed against Davidson by a corrupt officer who turned supergrass, nor other similarly serious disciplinary matters which had seen Davidson suspended from duty in 1996. The recent Ellison Review described this as a ‘significant failure’.
The same supergrass also claimed in 2006 that Davidson had confessed to a corrupt relationship with Clifford Norris, the powerful South London gangster whose son David was one of the killers of Stephen Lawrence.
Davidson, who denies any wrong-doing, was described in police intelligence reports as having ‘no integrity as a police officer and . . . always . . . open to offers from any source if financially viable’.
He was also viewed as ‘a valuable commodity among the criminal community’ — essentially suggesting he was somebody they could do business with.
These damning assessments were not put before the Macpherson Inquiry.
It follows therefore, that we must now re-examine the evidence presented before Macpherson in the light of the recent revelation that a lot of what was known about South London police corruption at the time was suppressed — and eventually shredded.
THE HIGH-LIVING COMMANDER
Commander Ray Adams always cut an enigmatic figure in the South London force. One secret intelligence report described him as having had a ‘meteoric rise through the ranks’, working in ‘some of the most sensitive posts within policing.
His levels of access to confidential material would have been second to none.’
Yet rumour and sometimes formal allegations of serious wrongdoing dogged Adams throughout his career.
He was the subject of two major corruption allegations and ‘11 other complaints between 1965 and 1985’. None of them stuck, but questions were still asked.
How, for example, could he afford in 1987 to live in a £450,000 mock Tudor mansion in a ‘millionaires’ row’ beside a Surrey golf course, as well as having a holiday home? (He argued it was the benefit of having an independently wealthy wife.)
At that time, internal investigators were exploring Commander Adams’s links to Kenneth Noye — a gangland figure who had been jailed for his involvement in the £75 million Brink’s-MAT gold bullion robbery in 1983, and is now serving a life sentence for an infamous road rage attack on the M25.
Adams described Noye as one of his informants. As part of this inquiry, the anti-corruption squad twice interviewed Adams’s friend and colleague, Detective Constable Alan ‘Taffy’ Holmes, who, it was suggested, had corrupt links to Noye. Adams, Holmes and Noye were all leading freemasons.
Holmes, you might be interested to learn, was also a colleague and ‘drinking buddy’ of the ‘Obnoxious Jock’ John Davidson.
Under pressure from the inquiry, Taffy Holmes began to crack.
Armed with a shotgun, he went to the house of a police colleague he suspected of secretly taping him as part of the anti-corruption investigation into Ray Adams. His intention was to kill, but when he arrived his target was not there.
In the end, it was Holmes who was the one to die, apparently by his own hand. On July 28, 1987, he was found by his wife in the back garden of their South London home with a fatal shotgun wound.
He had left a suicide note in which he blamed the colleague for driving him to his death.
Giving evidence at the inquest, DS John Davidson said Holmes had been ‘worried by events to do with the police but outside his normal work’. What could he have meant?
But were such worries — if they existed — the only factor?
A senior anti-corruption squad source told us: ‘Holmes mixed in very bad circles. The witness list for his inquest was of great interest to the [anti-corruption] ghost squad in the 1990s.’
Four months before Holmes’s death, private investigator Daniel Morgan had been found dead with an axe embedded in his skull in a pub car park in Sydenham, South London.
Intriguingly, several sources say that Morgan and Taffy Holmes were friends, and might have swapped intelligence.
Today, Morgan’s brother Alastair says that the pair were seen in a pub together by the same policeman whom Holmes accused of ‘grassing’ on him to the anti-corruption squad. ‘He saw them together, no doubt,’ he says simply.
So it seems that Taffy Holmes — friend, colleague and golfing partner of the larger-than-life Commander Ray Adams — was also a confederate of the murdered investigator.
What story could Holmes tell if he were alive today?
As for Ray Adams, in 1990 the Director of Public Prosecutions announced that there was no evidence to support any charge against him regarding corruption allegations, and he did not face any subsequent disciplinary action.
THE EXPOSURE OF ‘SERGEANT XX’
Both the Macpherson Inquiry and the recent Ellison Review into the Lawrence investigation examined evidence about an anonymous policeman, ‘Sergeant XX’, who, it was alleged, had been a link between Lawrence investigating officers and organised criminals.
Today, we can reveal that the identity of the officer in question is David Coles, a former Flying Squad detective sergeant.
As we will show, a police briefing note on the corruption scandal explicitly links both Coles and ‘Obnoxious Jock’ John Davidson to Commander Ray Adams.
In 1988, undercover Customs and Excise investigators reported to the Met that on four occasions they had seen DS Coles meeting the gangster Clifford Norris or his brother in South London pubs. Packages were exchanged and Coles was observed using a calculator.
At that point, the Met launched an inquiry which led to disciplinary proceedings against Coles, but only for making unconnected false entries to his duty log book during the period he was associating with Clifford Norris.
Coles was required to resign by the Met’s Disciplinary Board. But he appealed and was allowed to continue his service at the reduced rank of detective constable, remaining in the South London CID.
He was only ‘warned’ and never formally disciplined over his ‘plainly highly suspect’ — Sir William Macpherson’s words — meetings with Clifford Norris, whom Coles claimed to be cultivating as an ‘informant’.
Police records suggest that: ‘At some stage during his discipline and appeal process, Sgt XX (Coles) was seconded by Commander Ray Adams to perform a review of surveillance operations.’ If so, this was against the express advice of another senior officer who recommended that Coles be assigned to duties that were not ‘of a delicate and confidential nature’.
For his part, Adams told the Macpherson Inquiry that he had never heard of Coles.
Mark Ellison QC found Adams’s claim about Coles worthy of comment. In his review, he stated: ‘Were there to be clear evidence that this was a lie, it is also fair to say that the whole of Mr Adams’s evidence to the Macpherson Inquiry may need to be re-evaluated in that light, as Officer XX [Coles] was the one officer shown to the Inquiry’s satisfaction to have . . . corrupt connections with Clifford Norris.’
The information about Commander Adams’s alleged role in reassigning Coles comes from three secret intelligence analyses compiled by the Met’s Racial and Violent Crime Task Force and the Complaints Investigation Board, during 1999 and 2000, undertaken amid fears that corruption had played a part in shielding the Lawrence killers.
The trouble is that much of the relevant intelligence material gathered at that point was not only not made available to the Macpherson Inquiry, it was possibly not even seen in its entirety by the Met’s own corruption analysts in the months that followed.
This was astounding given what allegations the 1999-2000 analyses did contain. One conclusion was that ‘Clifford Norris was a corruptor of police officers and an intimidator of witnesses’.
Intelligence also suggested that ‘[Coles] may be regarded as Norris’s agent inside the Service’. A possible link from Clifford Norris to DS John Davidson apparently existed through Coles, via another suspected corrupt police colleague. This ‘does not appear to have been followed up and so remains . . . a possible further line of inquiry’, said Ellison.
A further section of the secret analyses stated: ‘It must be accepted that [Coles] undoubtedly had a corrupt relationship with Clifford Norris.’
And it added: ‘[Coles] is connected with the following suspected corrupt serving and former officers . . . Ray Adams.’ Later in the same briefing note, it was stated: ‘Davidson is connected with the following suspected corrupt serving and former officers ... Ray Adams.’
The third and final analysis report identified ‘the principal causes of concern’ in relation to possible Lawrence corruption as Clifford Norris and the following three officers: Adams, Coles and Davidson. But not enough evidence could be gathered to turn these suspicions into prosecutions.
Nor was there evidence at hand to link Davidson with Clifford Norris or Coles during the period of the first Lawrence murder investigation. The Ellison Review, meanwhile, also found no evidence providing any reasonable grounds for suspecting Ray Adams acted corruptly in the Stephen Lawrence murder investigation.
This week, we tracked down David Coles, who is now working as a railway ticket inspector in Dorset.
When asked about his association with Clifford Norris, Mr Coles said: ‘I was young and naïve and I probably did things which I would have done differently had I been older.
‘Yes, I knew Clifford Norris and yes, I dealt with him at the time. But back then he wasn’t on the run for anything. So the contact I had with him was legitimate.’
Mr Coles did not deny still being in contact with Clifford Norris at the time when Norris’s son David killed Stephen Lawrence: ‘Well, yes, he was still around then. But I wasn’t connected in any way to the [Stephen Lawrence] murder investigation.’
He denied the allegation that he knew DS John Davidson, and added: ‘This whole episode has cost me a job I loved. I know you won’t believe me, but you are barking up the wrong tree. This is never going to go away.’
In the light of the partial admission that Coles was in contact with Clifford Norris at the time Stephen died, it is astonishing to discover that, three years later, during the 1996 Old Bailey trial of three of the five Lawrence suspects, Coles was one of the officers assigned to guard chief prosecution witness Duwayne Brooks, Stephen’s friend who was with him when he was stabbed.
The case collapsed when Mr Brooks’s eyewitness accounts were deemed unreliable.
Macpherson later commented of Coles: ‘Anybody who had known about (his) past . . . (would) have regarded him as a wholly inappropriate person to guard Mr Brooks.’
Even though he was mired in corruption allegations, Coles was allowed to retire on medical grounds, with an enhanced pension.
THE LAWRENCE LETTER
So we have established links between gangster Clifford Norris, father of one of the Lawrence killers, and David Coles, the disgraced ‘Sergeant XX’.
We have aired the allegations that through other suspected corrupt colleagues, Lawrence investigator John Davidson — ‘Obnoxious Jock’ — was also linked to Norris.
We have also examined the police briefing note linking Coles and Davidson to Commander Ray Adams.
So was Ray Adams himself connected in some way to the Lawrence investigations?
On April 30, 1993 — a week after Stephen’s murder — Adams’s name appeared at the bottom of a letter to the dead teenager’s family.
The letter concerned liaison between police and the family. Sir William Macpherson found ‘strange features’ in Adams’s evidence to his Inquiry, but accepted his story that his intervention was routine administration.
The Lawrence family lawyers did not. They claimed the purpose of Adams’s intervention was to influence the investigation ‘so that the suspects named over the first weekend were not arrested . . . a potential channel for such influence arises from Commander Adams’s previous links with Kenneth Noye who in turn has links to (Clifford) Norris’.
Within two weeks of the letter being sent, Adams signed off long-term sick with ‘an unidentified fracture of the spine’.
In August 1993, he retired from the police on medical grounds, with an enhanced pension, as would John Davidson and David Coles.
Neither Macpherson nor Ellison could find evidence of corruption on Adams’s part, and none of the many allegations against him have been substantiated.
But it should be noted that while the contents of Adams’s ‘voluminous’ complaints file were not disclosed to the Macpherson Inquiry, the review by Mark Ellison QC suggested that might not be the case if a new inquiry was to be ordered.
Adams still lives in a very large house and still denies any wrongdoing.
Mark Ellison himself admitted in his report that despite his own efforts there were ‘serious questions as to what . . . of relevance . . . remains undisclosed’.
Today, the families of Stephen Lawrence and Daniel Morgan insist that only a major new investigation can establish the truth about how much a web of police corruption prevented their murderers from being swiftly brought to justice.
As Metropolitan Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe indicated last week during a hesitant appearance before the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, his own force is in no position to provide it.
Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson wants to discuss police and crime concerns
West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson
We would like an assurance that Mr. Norman Scarth is given a FULL hearing as to the absolutely disgusting conduct of West Yorkshire police's handling of
a man who is highly regarded for his intellect and integrity on law matters . He won an ECHR action single handedly against Britain for human rights abuses and faced
a vile persecution attack campaign by Yorkshire police immediately after his success.
Instead of going after Jimmy Savile (a freemason) and his merry band of paedo's like Peter Jaconelli they were to busy attacking an elderly man who was exposing their part in
the massive corruption going on within the court system of the United Kingdom and where the mass seizure of victims properties are taking place with the assistance of freemasons operating within and corrupting the police. If the biggest police force in the UK can be corrupted by such a network it would NOT take a rocket scientist to work out the whole country has a similar issue.
See report in the independent for absolute proof of such.
Revealed: How gangs used the Freemasons to corrupt police
Secret networks of Freemasons have been used by organised crime gangs to corrupt the criminal justice system, according to a bombshell Metropolitan Police report leaked to The Independent.
Operation Tiberius, written in 2002, found underworld syndicates used their contacts in the controversial brotherhood to “recruit corrupted officers” inside Scotland Yard, and concluded it was one of “the most difficult aspects of organised crime corruption to proof against”.The report – marked “Secret” – found serving officers in East Ham east London who were members of the Freemasons attempted to find out which detectives were suspected of links to organised crime from other police sources who were also members of the society.
Famous for its secret handshakes, Freemasonry has long been suspected of having members who work in the criminal justice system – notably the judiciary and the police.
The political establishment and much of the media often dismiss such ideas as the work of conspiracy theorists. However, Operation Tiberius is the second secret police report revealed by The Independent in the last six months to highlight the possible issue.
Project Riverside, a 2008 report on the rogue private investigations industry by the Serious Organised Crime Agency, also claimed criminals attempt to corrupt police officers through Freemason members in a bid to further their interests.Concerns over the influence of freemasons on the criminal justice system in 1998 led former Home Secretary Jack Straw to order that all police officers and judges should declare membership of the organisation.
However, ten of Britain’s 43 police forces refused to take part and the policy was dropped under threat of legal action. In England and Wales, the Grand Master of the Freemasons is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent. The United Grand Lodge of England declined to comment last night.
The Independent revealed last week that Operation Tiberius found that organised crime syndicates such as the Adams family and the gang led by David Hunt were able to infiltrate the Met “at will”.
Asked to comment on the Tiberius report, a spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “The Metropolitan Police Service will not tolerate any behaviour by our officers and staff which could damage the trust placed in police by the public.
“We are determined to pursue corruption in all its forms and with all possible vigour.”
Subject: West Yorks PCC invitation.
Date: Fri, 4 Apr 2014
Mr Mark Burns-Williamson,
West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner
I respond to your invitation (below).
You will I'm sure remember a previous occasion (c2010?) when I responded to an invitation from you, to attend a meeting in BIngley, in your previous role as Chairman of West Yorkshire Authority.
First there was a 'sales pitch' when your team extolled the virtues & successes of WYP.
When the time for questions came, I asked, "Who is going to protect us from bent coppers?" (or words to that effect). The chairman of the meeting refused to answer (not even to say 'There are none'), & tried to move on to the next question, but I refused to allow this until my question had been answered. Your response was to suspend the meeting, then to abandon it.
My 'needs, concerns & problems' are that the actions of bent coppers (in collusion with corrupt judges) escalated to such an extent that, in genuine fear (& with cause to be!) at the age of 86 I was forced to flee the land of my birth (the land for which I fought in WW2!) & seek safety in the Republic of Ireland.
I am looking forward to my 15 minute appointment, though it will have to be by telephone or Skype, as my life will be worth nothing if I dare set foot in Britain again. Or are you still determined not to answer questions about bent coppers & corrupt judges?
"People can discuss their crime issues and concerns with a police chief next weekend.
West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson will host a public surgery on Friday April 11 from 3pm-5.30pm.
Anyone wanting to speak to the commissioner about policing or crime concerns is being asked to book a 15-minute appointment by calling the commissioner’s office on 01924 294000 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 01924 294000 FREE end_of_the_skype_highlighting or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr Burns-Williamson said: 'I hold regular surgeries as I believe it’s vital to hear from and understand the needs and concerns of local people. If you have any concerns or problems regarding policing and crime matters, please come and speak to me. I want to hear your views'.”
