Met Police should be broken up into manageable units if problems can't be fixed | The Sun

Broken force

WE didn’t think we could be any more shocked about the catastrophic incompetence and vile prejudice at the Met Police.

Then we read Baroness Casey’s report.

Misogyny, in particular, looks wildly out of control.

Monsters akin to Wayne Couzens may still be in the ranks.

The detection rate for rape is so woeful that one cop says it is all but legal in London.

Some cases were scuppered when a dilapidated freezer holding samples packed up.

Moment Met Police rapist is arrested while naked and makes arrogant boast

Key evidence is routinely lost.

What a legacy ex-chiefs Cressida Dick and Bernard Hogan-Howe left for Mark Rowley.

Rebuilding this broken force looks like climbing Everest in flip-flops.

Sir Mark must be honest about that task, for the sake of London’s citizens.

If the problems are too vast the Met must be broken up into more manageable units.

Our hunch is that policing would be much better for it. It surely could not be worse.

Sly Starmer

GIVEN all his jettisoned principles and 180-degree U-turns, Keir Starmer’s self-proclaimed “integrity” is dubious already.

But what is his explanation for failing to come clean over when he first tapped up supposedly impartial civil servant Sue Gray to become his chief of staff?

We now know it was in November, after her Partygate report but while negotiations were ongoing over how much of her “evidence” against Boris Johnson to hand to the Privileges Committee.

She was simultaneously negotiating to lead ­Labour’s campaign to oust the Tories.

Did she follow the rules about declaring contact with the Opposition?

If not, will Starmer stand by his job offer?

We are mystified.

Labour’s leader paints himself as the noble former chief prosecutor, the stickler for rules, the polar opposite to cavalier Boris whose Partygate “trial” tomorrow will be largely informed by Gray’s report.

Why, if Starmer’s offer to her was entirely above board, has he been so furtive?

A tsar is gorn

YOUR shopping may be hideously pricey — but how much worse it would have been had the Government’s departing “food tsar” got his way.

Old Etonian Henry Dimbleby is a nanny state zealot.

The sworn enemy of buy-one-get-one-frees that make bills less painful for the low-paid.

The man who wanted to tax sugar and salt heavily enough to reduce our diets to blandness.

Who thinks curbing ads will stop us buying snacks.

Who ­bafflingly judges the fizzy-drink tax a success despite obesity still rising.

Dimbleby quit because Rishi Sunak’s Tories weren’t listening.

We can only applaud them, especially given the inflation crisis.
