Len Duvall, OBE is the Chairman of the Metropolitan Police Authority , former Local Gubment employee, Greenwich Councillor and Chairman of the Greater London Labour Party. His feathers have been ruffled by the comments political folk are making about Plod's early visiting hours on Tony's friends whilst investigating a multi - million pound conspiracy to conceal financial gifts to New Labour to fund their recent election costs, by very rich London based businessmen, in exchange for what has been described by Peter Mandelson (audio) as membership of Britain's most exclusive club : Len asked Lord Patel to pass this message on - know what I mean ?
'Throughout this investigation the police have, quite properly, refused to comment except to confirm that, as in any other criminal inquiry, they are following where the evidence leads. (qv Murder of de Menezes) It seems to me that it is inadvisable for others to comment, openly or behind the scenes, on the merits of individual lines of inquiry until such time as the full picture can be revealed. ( - that is of course if you don't want waking up by some burly policemen !) Those who have spoken out over the past 24 hours about the way in which police are conducting this inquiry may well wish to reflect on what they have said. (Watch it David ! We know where all the houses are you live in)
'What is clear is that allegations of perverting the course of justice raise very serious concerns.(Not least in the Labour Party) It is also clear that no one in this country is above the law.
'As chair of the Metropolitan Police Authority I must be seen never to seek to manipulate or pressurise senior officers in the Met on any operational inquiry. Others would do well to follow my example.'
Len tells me that anyone can contact him .... firstname.lastname@example.org .. should you have any comments, helpful information etc., especially regarding corruption, business, the Labour Party, Gubment, Local Gubment. Police, folks not on the square etc.,
Len had to remind us he is also a Director of Tilfen Land Ltd., which describes itself as "A business success story as unique as it is impressive.

"Tilfen Land’s role at the site will be to ‘townplan’ the whole development by devising the overall phasing strategy, offering serviced development ‘parcels’ to the housebuilders who will plan, design and construct houses in their areas according to strict design guidelines. Tilfen Land will also be responsible for providing the necessary infrastructure for the development to evolve."
