Rewarding failure - John McDowell organised de Menezes murder now is top cop in charge of terrism - don't travel on the tube.
It has been announced that Metropolitan Police Commander John McDowall has been promoted and made National Co-ordinator of Terrorist Investigations.
He will take over from Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke as the head of Counter Terrorism Command at New Scotland Yard.
Commander John McDowall who was gold commander in the counter-terrorism operation to catch the 21/7 bombers.
The breaches of health and safety legislation detailed to the Old Bailey by the prosecution counsel Clare Montgomery, QC, were:
1. A failure adequately to communicate Commander John McDowall’s strategy to the officers who took over the operation on July 22.
Mr McDowall, deputy head of counter-terrorism at the Yard, wanted a surveillance presence and a firearms capability at Scotia Road, Tulse Hill — the address connected with two of the 21/7 bombers and, coincidentally, with de Menezes. But there was “obvious confusion from the outset” between surveillance and other teams.
2. A failure adequately to plan for or carry out Mr McDowall’s strategy for controlling the premises.
Mr Clarke The Sphincter of the Yard has not yet handed in his vast lunch pail (see pic) and continues to postpone his retirement in the role of temporary Assistant Commissioner after Mr "Randy" Andy Hayman announced his premature and precipitate departure clutching his very healthy pension entitlements last week.
The Sphincter is now in charge of the specialist operations directorate, which includes counter terrorist work as well as diplomatic protection and other areas.... doubts persist as tho whether he has to continue texting and phoning Nicky and Heidi and having lengthy pub sessions after hours or spending nights at Heathrow hotels....all on exes....US$4 Mn. missing at the last count
For Heidi's and Nikki's sake we hope not.
