New Met Police chief must root out misogynists and turn dismal force around after failures of predecessors

Fix the force

WHAT does a suspected serial sex offender have to do to get sacked from the Met Police?

The monstrous predator David ­Carrick was finally fired yesterday — but only after admitting a sickening 49 charges including 24 rapes.

Despite a 20-year record of accusations, he was never before at risk of losing his job.

We still hope the new Met chief Mark Rowley will be tough enough to root out other misogynists and turn this dismal force around after the failures of Bernard Hogan Howe and Cressida Dick.

But yesterday he failed even to guarantee that a woman making a sexual complaint at a police station won’t be met by an officer themselves under suspicion of a past sex offence.

“I’m not going to make a promise I can’t stick to,” he said meekly.

That’s not good enough.

Suspend any cops under suspicion of such offending. If they are later cleared, reinstate them.

How hard can this be?

Rage at unions

IF the unions aiming to bring Britain to its knees on February 1 think the public will warm to their cause they are mistaken.

The TUC says the mass walkout by teachers, rail workers and others is a protest against the Government’s “fundamental attack on the right to strike”.

They mean the minimum service levels the Tories now aim to put into law.

But those aren’t an attack on strikes. Merely on unions’ power to shut down the country, to damage kids’ education, to prevent commuters getting to THEIR work and to pull the rug from under an elected Government they despise.

Most voters back that clampdown. We have all been battered economically by Covid and Putin. Most in the private sector accept that firms cannot afford huge pay hikes to match rampant inflation.

And they are increasingly sick of public sector unions, run by full-time hard-Left militants, pretending the Government can.

Hasty Harry

WHEN Harry told of the 25 fighters he killed in Afghanistan he didn’t think that it could be weaponised by Islamists.

That the Taliban could use it as propaganda. That Iran would shamelessly use it to try to deflect from its barbaric murder of a British-Iranian citizen.

These wicked regimes will say anything, of course. But they have exposed Harry’s main flaw:

The complete absence of thought about the repercussions from his tawdry book and endless TV interviews.

He didn’t think about any backlash because he is a thoughtless man. He doesn’t even seem to think smearing his own family will have lasting consequences. They just need to apologise to HIM, he says, and they can reconcile.

Maybe someone in California should think for him.
