POLICE at Downing Street completely failed to spot 100 staffers with eight-packs of Stella in blue plastic bags getting shitfaced in the garden. What else did they miss?
All the other parties
The other May parties, the Christmas parties, the Harvest Festival parties, the 2021 Valentine’s Day ball with live PA from Peter Andre: it seems there wasn’t a party at Downing Street that police managed to catch. Meanwhile, elsewhere in Britain, they were busting baby showers.
Copious evidence of lockdown lawbreaking
Sadly, the Met – whose boss, Cressida Dick, presided over the execution of an innocent Brazilian man then got promoted – did not have enough evidence to act on lockdown parties. The photos, email and first-hand testimony were insufficient. However if you’re two black athletes in a nice car they’ve got all the evidence they need.
That twat going to Durham
Eyewitnesses can be confused. Questioning can be intrusive. Investigating senior civil servants can be gently discouraged. So ultimately no action was taken by the police about Dominic Cummings’s lockdown-breaking visits to Durham and Barnard Castle while they were telling two people sat down with crisps that it was an illegal picnic.
The Met’s failed to observe that hundreds of people gathered to mourn Sarah Everard last March were socially distanced and outdoors, instead judging it as a riot waiting to happen and acting accordingly. Though many of them were able to use their detective skills to trace and harrass attendee Patsy Stevenson on Tinder.
Any racism whatsoever
Despite an official report of ‘institutional racism’, the Met has never once found any racism whatsoever within its ranks. Even when senior black officers expose it, subsequent investigations always find it was just a misunderstanding and here’s a large payoff. Perhaps it’s because they’re so busy not being racist they miss massive illegal piss-ups.
