July Bombing review

Asked if there were any further details following Sir Ian Blair’s meeting regarding offering greater protection for police, the PMOS said there were not.

Briefing took place at 15:00 | Search for related news


  1. "offering greater protection for police"

    What kind of protection? Protection from prosecution by their victims or their victims families? Protection from scrutiny?

    Whatever kind of "protection" he is talking about, the fact that anyone needs to consider greater protection for the police (who are already surely amply protected by existing laws) is extremely worrying in itself. It is the general public who need protection from the police but I notice no-one is talking about that, or about dropping the ridiculous shoot-to-kill policy…

  2. No. This is just a simple typographic error isn’t it? The meeting was actually about protection ‘from’ the police.

    But then again………

    This is just the two Blairs blurring the picture once more. Smoke and mirrors.

    What do the cops want protection ‘from’ for God’s sake. They can already blow people away without sanction, bend all sorts of rules like speeding, petty violence (or is that mindless thuggery?) etc etc. Then they get all sorts of perks. Then they get lots of sick leave, early retirement and so on.

    This is the usual snivelling self-interested garbage from the Old Bill. They are beneath contempt.
