Sir Ian Blair has no pride. How can he not resign when the following can be written about him?
If the Beano had a leader column, it, too, would be calling for Sir Ian's sacking, on the grounds that he is a disgrace to his uniform and to the once good name of our police.
If he had the least regard for the officers under his command, he would end their embarrassment by resigning. Sadly, he has never before shown any such regard. I doubt he will now. After all, he needs this job. He is a useless creature entirely unqualified for any other. His only life skill is sucking up to cretinous politicians.
